Happy saturday everybody! I wanted to give you a little update on my vegetable garden :-)
I still have my tomatoe- and cucumber plants inside the house since they need a lot of warmth to grow. But today I planted out my zucchini and pumpkin plants. The pumpkin plants seem to be a bit more robust though. When I planted the zucchini plants outside they looked like they wouldn’t make it, since their leafs were hanging down. But I watered them a lot and hope that they will recover from the move.
I was very suprised today when I came to plant the vegetable plants. Weeks ago when I planted all my seeds in my pots I had too many pumpkin seeds left, so I just put some of them outside in the ground allready. I really didn’t think that they would grow, since it was quite cold still, but today I saw that the actually did grow!! YAY! Look how nicely they grew (there are about 8 plants of those and I added another 10, from my pots, today – this will hopefully be a rich harvest in fall!! ;))
We also have some strawberries growing allready. Last year I bought four little strawberry plants which brought us exactly 3 sour strawberries. :-D I was a bit dissapointed, BUT last year the strawberries grew new plants (without fruit) and those new plants and the old ones became much bigger this year. Now it looks like we will have some more strawberries this summer! You can allready see them start to grow…
Here are some more impressions of the garden that I shot today. Starting with a cute garden helper, the bumblebee:
Some of our herbs:
I love this flower called Allium:
This was our cherry tree 3 weeks ago:
And this is from today…. the cherries are starting to form:
This is our beautiful acorn tree. I love all the different colors of it:
And this is our newest neighbour. A bird family moved into our birdshouse in the backyard. I can allready hear the babys tweeting. The parents fly in and out all day to feed them.
I really wonder if it’s last years family or their offspring?? These are pictures from last year. The same birdhouse is not occupied this year though…
So, these were my garden updates for today. I think soon we will see my veggies become flowers. Exciting! I’ll keep you posted. Have a great weekend everybody!
