Garden updates

I foundĀ four huge wire thingamajigs behind our fence. I was excited and decided to try them out as tomato cages. So behold, rusty metal in the garden bed

The tomato plants are only about two feet tall, but I’m getting the first cute little tomatoes on them. Awwwww

This is another tomato area; they haven’t been in the ground as long. I’m trying a grid out of bamboo to support these ones. I’m also trying pruning for the first time this year. I’m curious to see how they fair, especially trying a few different kinds support.

Pole-Bean Tee-Pee! I have pole beans planted all around the base and ran string between all but one of the gaps. So hopefully it will fill in and look like an actual tee-pee. This littleĀ girl is excited about it. She calls it her “own house.”

Speaking of LG, I’m having a time keeping her from poaching the sweet peas before they are ready

On to the fruit. How cute are these little peaches?! I need to thin the fruit, but I keep putting it off because they are adorable.

My strawberry patch. Doesn’t look like it from the first view, but they are loaded. We got to eat the first of this years crop today. So good!

The blueberries are happy, too.
