Our garden has really grown in the past week, so I trimmed my olive tree, because some branches started growing toward the ground; I brought a few branches in for the table. Last week there was some warm weather, and then some cooler temperatures, breezes, and rain, and then the tomato plants started to lean and now the lettuce bolted.
Here are some red cherry, grape tomatoes, and two purple tomatoes. The purple tomatoes begin to turn red when they are ready, and they are bigger tomatoes than the grapes and cherry, but not traditional sized tomatoes. We make caprice salad with tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and pistachios. We also make lettuce and tomato sandwiches.
And, there are hundreds of purples on two plants.
I can't see what is going on up here, but there is definitely a nest, because they are making a racket. They were also smart enough to build away from the cats, but mine wear bells.
This is a photo of the lettuce about a week and a half ago, and here it is now below.
The peaches on the tree have also changed color, and they will be ready sometime in May. Earlier this year, I removed 25 percent of them, but maybe I should of removed more. I'm not sure how big they will be.
Oh, and here is my meadow, a bed that I planted as a mini meadow. It keeps blooming with different layers of color.
The late afternoon and the early evenings are really pretty.
Just a photo of a box that my daughter brought out into the yard for collecting. I've been working on a project in the potting shed that will probably just involve paint and rearranging, but my spouse and I have at least cleaned out all the clutter that accumulates. That alone was an accomplishment!
Thank you for visiting.
