Pictures from the Garden
This spinach isn't really all that big and it's already starting to go to seed. I think it got really confused by the weird weather.
The pretty lettuce is called Merlot. It is going to be ready way before my Esmeralda lettuce.
My first little peach! Since we just planted the tree about 2 months ago I feel like I shouldn't let it fruit this year but I'm just so excited!
Strawberries are almost ready. I should have 2 next week.
We have mason bees! They hatched from that little triangular box at the bottom right, pollinated my yard and came back and filled the tubes. We have 14 now (we got 3 more after I took this picture) so I got 4 more than I thought I would. I'm hoping the whole thing fills up by the end of the summer.
We have honeybees too. They are loving the fact that my chive is in bloom!
