Fruity Friday

Last summer the apples did extremely well.


So did the pear.


And the fig seems to be thrilled with it's new location.


The blueberries are the rockstars of our garden.


The squash did well, the raised beds with Dad's irrigation system work well.


The Muscadines did well, it's a pity no one likes them and that the Dad doesn't have the time to turn them into wine. Oh well the birds enjoy them.

The new strawberry variety is not doing well at all.The strawberries themselves taste better they are larger and sweeter, but the plants don't thrive the way the ones we used to have (before the bad grass got in them) did.


 Dad tried growing the tomatoes and peppers in buckets last year. We actually still have some alive in the green house. Mom wishes he would plant them in the ground they need way to much water to be stuck in a bucket. She says they are the most labor intensive plant we have. ~ATCAD

You sure have lots of edible stuff growing in your garden. We have a few fruit bearing shrubs but we leave all the fruit for the birds.

You do have a bountiful,garden!

I like those raised beds!
We here have to put our tomatoes in containers, the soil around here is very toxic to them with all the walnut trees we have around here.

I'm thinking of growing some things in pots this year, especially plants that tend to overrun.
