last weekend in May....

Finally got the tomato plants in the ground on the last day of May. Seems like I am really late, but it is only two weeks later than last year. We should have nothing but warm weather from here on out. The plants that were left over were put out at the curb. I hope someone will use them.





I couldn't resist buying these High Bush Blueberry bushes today at the garden store. These are native plants and I have always wanted to get into growing berries. I have a strawberry patch and now I have two blueberry bushes. Next year I think I will set up a Raspberry bed.

Northern Highbush Blueberry




... and every year, even though I have more than enough tomato plants in the ground, I always have a few containers of patio tomatoes, just because I think they look great, and they always seem to mature much faster than the regular tomatoes.

Oooh. I'd love to have some blueberry bushes. Maybe at my next place (finger's crossed that our offer on a condo goes through....).

when we moved here, one of the first things we found in the fallow, overgrown garden area (which used to be the night pasture for the cows - full of composted cow manure) was an gigantic, old highbush blueberry. every other year we get a tremendous harvest, most of which i freeze...it's just such a great thing that they're right out in our garden.
