|Snow pea flower|
Last week I thought that I had no snow pea flowers, but I was wrong. There are many flowers, so hopefully I will have some home grown snow peas soon. I spent just about 30 minutes in the garden planting some more seedlings, pulling some weeds, and checking on the fruit trees. Last year I worked in the garden as if I had all the time in the world, and I did. Now that I have a full time job, all I have is about 2 hours of daylight during the week. I have no time to waste when I get home from the office.
Both apple and cherry trees are now covered with flowers. The peach tree has a bunch of tiny peaches already. As I passed by the strawberry cages that I made last year, I thought I would see whether the strawberry plants grew back. As I removed the cages and started pulling out the weeds, I saw something red. There was one single ripe strawberry and several flowers. I am so excited! I removed the cage so the strawberry plants have more room to grow. This year I have Kelsey, and she does chase after squirrels. Perhaps the squirrels won't be able to steal strawberries off the ground now that Kelsey is guarding the garden. We will see.
