I've had a few requests to see the progress on my container garden and perennials for this year so thought I'd post some pictures.
Our 3 year old blueberry plants produced this year after we surrounded them with a fence and placed netting over them as the first year the rabbits ate them and the second year the birds ate the blueberries before they ripened.
Orange mint, chocolate mint & orange mint .... fragrances are so luscious ! Use for our teas, cooking and place them as greenery in vases filled with our roses.
Cucumbers attaching to the trellis and grape plant (which now has a cage around it as the rabbits seem to like to eat the leaves of the grape plant)
Multi-colored zinnias ... blooming more every day ... so delightful !
Red bell peppers - Red zinnias - Habanero Peppers
Cherry Tomato plant -- plus we have 6 other tomato plants growing
Butterfly bush was only supposed to be a 6 footer -- it's 12 foot high right now and the butterflies and hummingbirds are having a total feast on it !!
I get a thrill every day when I water just watching in awe of how fast the garden grows !!
Happy Gardening to All !! Rocie
