I am lagging soooo far behind in my garden chores, it’s pathetic. I have tomato seedlings in little pots, eggplants in pots, even cabbage in pots.
These poor little seedlings have been in their pots too long. They're chlorotic and rootbound.
My raised beds are emptying out from harvests, but I haven’t replanted the squares yet. So much to do, so much yet to be planted.
About a third of the squares in my raised beds are empty.
I won’t even mention the avocado, Valencia orange, and two lemon trees yet to be planted.
This Haas avocado is my newest tree purchase. It's not in the ground yet.
It has two itty bitty avocados on it. They may or may not make it to maturity as some of these babies usually fall off.
And my blueberry bushes. I’ve had them three years and they’re still in their original nursery pots. ARG!
Will these blueberry bushes ever get planted? I bought some barrels to plant them in last year, but still haven't done the deed.
And here it is Friday, and I haven’t even posted my Harvest Monday for May 24 yet. Well, that’s one thing that I can take care of right now. I’m getting some good things from the garden.
Homegrown peaches and strawberries go on cereal in the morning and on vanilla ice cream in the evening.
Sugar snap peas go into pasta primavera.
I've finished harvesting blue potatoes from Smart Pot #1. Here's half the harvest.
And I can dream of harvests to come.
Early Girl tomatoes
I haven't been planting lettuce regularly, and it all went to seed at once. Only this Lollo Rossa is left.
Looks like we're going to get a few blackberries this June.
This will be the first cluster to ripen. Just enough for a bowl of cereal or ice cream.
I get enough strawberries every few days for my cereal. I think I'll plant two strawberry pots next year.
I have seven Tendergreen cucumbers growing in this pot. I normally only grow four per pot. I'm hoping that with regular watering and fertilizer, all will produce cucumbers. The first female flowers are now showing, but it will be a while before they're mature enough to be fertilized.
If I'm careful with my photo angle, my Garden of Infinite Neglect looks pretty good.
Uh, oh, the neighborhood fox squirrels are getting into the Florida Prince peaches. I picked the last ones today.
And now for the actual harvest from last week, ending May 24.
