First tomato blossom!

Some show and tell...
We got our first tomato blossom today!

Also the very first few blueberry blossoms are starting to plump into blueberries... they have a long way to go yet. Most of them are still flowers that the big ol fat bumble bees love.

The mint, thyme and sage are all going a little bonkers right now. It was nice to grab some thyme and sage to marinate a pork tenderloin in that we grilled up tonight.

...and there's my kid trying to be stealthy while rootin' around in the alpine strawberry plant. Yeah, no berry is safe with her around! She worse then the bugs. ;^)

I also managed to get at least another row of corn planted but didn't quite get around to the carrots. I really should've as we're supposed to be pretty rainy for the next week. Guess I'll just have to attempt some more underwater gardening that's so typical to this region. ;^)

I also managed to get pictures of all the beds today. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the blog you can see I've taken pictures of each raised bed at one month intervals. If you hover over an image it will tell you what month it was taken. Kinda fun to see the progress! I really can't believe how big the potato plants got in a month!

Hi Jen, I want to thank you for following my blog.

Your garden is progressing nicely. I really love the pictures of the beds from month to month.

Yes, my children are murder on berries too. How can you blame them?

First flowers are always exciting!
