Just a quick notation of Spring progress in the garden.
The Pink Lemonade blueberries are developing nicely. These are in a pot so it's much easier to keep the soil acidic. Netting to combat those thieving birds needs to be put in place this weekend.
Thornless boysenberries (6 plants) are producing well. Once the petals have matured a bit more, bird netting will be installed here as well. It's a lot more difficult than with the blueberries.
O'Henry blossoms have faded giving way to developing peaches. This summer I will try to correct some pruning neglect from last year. More on that in a later post.
Granny Smith apples are coming along beautifully. I don't thin out the fruit. Nature will drop the weak ones in most all cases.
Celebrity tomatoes (6) all have multiple blossoms and are thriving amongst the onions. I suspect that when the heat turns up this week (95 by Wednesday), these plants will be going bonkers. In the meantime, I'm loving this cool, overcast Saturday.
I picked up a little lavender plant that needs to be potted. It's already developed buds. No doubt it will enjoy the heat next week and be in full bloom.
That's a quick peek at what's going on in the garden.
