In The Garden

Well I took some photos of the "garden" this morning.  Here are views of my "beds" (actually tubs and planters) and of my strawberry plants, just emerging.  I also took a shot of the potatoes but it was too blurry so I'll try again next time.  Anyway, they look pretty much as the strawberries do.

The rectangle planters and pots are planted with Swiss Chard, Chinese Broccoli, Spinach, Radishes, and Bok Choy.  The blue tub holds the potatoes and the dark planter in front has Snow Peas and Beans and Shallots.

The wooden tub is planted with strawberries.  I had some growing but they succumbed to last year's drought when Mr. neglected to keep that tub watered - he didn't know anything was planted there.  However, a few of the strawberries had escaped and volunteered to populate the patio so I am hopeful to have a small crop later this year.  I usually only get a few berries so any amount will be considered a "crop".  And it's fun to pick and eat a strawberry right in your own backyard.
