It is time for Monday Garden Club!
The garden has exploded with growth! A few days ago, I harvested 5 gallon size bags full of Romaine lettuce, 2 bags of kale and 1 bag of Swiss chard. Amazing!
I'm still not exactly sure what is up with the summer squash stems, but they are growing like crazy! I covered the open stem with soil. They sure do seem happy!
We added Marigolds to the tomato bed. There's a reason for that, but I don't remember what it is. I have not idea what I'm doing in the garden, so I just do as I'm told. ;-P They do add a nice burst of color, don't they?
Strawberries are growing . . . and making the birds very happy. I caught one eating the only ripe strawberry. We're going to get some bird feeders to put around the yard. Hopefully that will distract the birds from the garden.
The strawberry plants are quite happy, too! Check it out! They're sending out runners.
The fairy garden is beginning to get some color.
But what is up with the spinach bolting already?! It's only been in the ground a short time. I guess it's time to plant some more seeds. Hmph!
I was so inspired by color around the bloggy world and our neighborhood, I decided we needed some color, too. I am certain that you are all shocked that we chose every shade of pink to brighten our yard.
Now head on over to our Monday Garden Club sponsor, Aliceson at Feet Off the Table, to see what is happening in gardens everywhere!
