Tomatoes went in this afternoon. I’ll take the time to note which ones we put in – we went with some exotics this year. I’ve learned quite a few tomato growing tips over the last year and will be trying some new things. Fingers crossed for a banner crop and some weather cooperation. There are not a lot of plants that need to go in the ground now – starting toward the maintenance stage.
We are getting large blooms from our Chantilly Clematis which is on one of our back garden arbors. There is another Clematis plant there that is growing at an amazing rate! Unfortunately, we have lost documentation on this one and will have to wait until it blooms to find out the variety. Nearly to the top of the eight foot arbor, this is the second year for this plant. Last year it never got more than about a third of the way up and never bloomed.
Using one of the pallets that have been laying around here, I built a small planter for some strawberries. There won’t be a lot of they end up producing, but the box was basically free and they might be worth snacking on while roaming in the garden.
