Yellow pears are the first tomato babies I have. All of the tomato plants have blooms.
Strawberries and shallot bed. Strawberries are finally producing now that the beer and heat have taken care of the slugs and the netting has fended off the birds. Shallots are a different story - why are mine taking SO long? I planted these around December! Everything I've read says they should be ready in about 90 days. Mine have lots of healthy top growth, but they haven't really started forming new bulbs yet. Help?
The squash (above) are insanely healthy! Cucumbers (below) are growing well on the chain-link fence (they aren't yellow - it's just the light).
Bell peppers are staked and growing well. They take so long to produce, but I love that they are pretty much pest-free.
Eggplant are finally growing nicely.
I never thought the above plants would get so big after waiting so long for the seeds to germinate and grow! Here was the lone seedling I had weeks after starting my seeds (turns out they just needed more heat):
Here is a side bed that is progressing nicely: rose, lambs ear, gardenia, and one crocosmia are blooming. Iris is done for the year. Mums, peruvian daffodil, daylily and more crocosmia are coming soon.
