A look back at 2014

Post  littlesapphire on 2/27/2015, 9:15 pm

Happy Friday, everyone!  I don't know about all of you, but I'm feeling pretty antsy lately.  I want to get outside, dig in the dirt, see the green grass, listen no the birds sing!  But it's not even time to start planting seeds indoors yet here.  As a matter of fact, there's four feet of snow on the ground and it's going to be -15F tonight.  Yuck tongue 

So to make myself feel a little better, I thought I'd go through my pictures and post some nice ones of my garden last year.  I hope you enjoy it too Smile  Unfortunately, I didn't take as many pictures as I should have.  I'll have to make sure I remember to do it more this year.

April



Crocuses are my favorite sign of spring in my garden.


May



I love daffodils, too, especially these pink ones.




My azaleas are always the first to bloom in the neighborhood.






I found this fat chicken at a local amish greenhouse! 


June



For some reason, the only picture I took in June was of these pretty shade loving posies I had in a pot on my front porch.


July



These are Laxton's Progress #9, named apparently because they are supposed to have 9 peas in them.  This is the ONE AND ONLY 9 pea pod I had last year!



This is my wonder-onion.  I had planted it as a seed in 2013.  Unfortunately, most of them got dug up by a neighborhood cat shortly thereafter, so I gave these onions up for dead.  This one, though, somehow managed to survive being pulled up all through 2013, and then somehow managed to survive a winter where it was so cold that our ground literally froze over 4 feet deep.  I pulled it up before it was done to add to my peas Smile





My messy back garden!



This is a yellow squash called Success PM, which is supposed to be resistant to PM.  And it really is!



Cucs, carrots and lettuce in the left box, potatoes, bush beans and onions in the right box.




It's hard to see it very well, bu this is a close up of the huge cluster of flowers and tomatoes on my Blondkopfchen cherry tomato.  It produces hundreds and hundreds of small yellow tomatoes.  Sometimes they look like they have more flower clusters than leaves.


August



Mr. and Mrs. carrot Very Happy





A nice harvest of little finger carrots and new Yukon gold potatoes.




My main onion harvest, all braided and ready to be hung up.




A huge 1.3 pound tomato!  I collected the seeds from an heirloom tomato I bought in the store several years ago.  It's my favorite tomato now!




It makes huge tomato steaks.




A trombocino squash Smile





And here it is still on the vine.




I also bought some new blueberry bushes last year, because my old dwarf bushes died after last year's extreme cold.  These ones are called Pink Lemonade!  The berries are a really pretty shade of pink, but they taste just like regular blueberries.

Well, I hope you enjoyed some pictures of green things.  It's got me just itching to get some seeds planted!

Julie, Thank you for the garden tour. I think it's good to look back on successes, especially while waiting for spring.

Thank you, Julie.  I notice that your first picture was taken in April, so I suppose you have at four/five more weeks to go before you see you crocus again so please be patient.  At least you have pictures to look back on. Very Happy

Thanks everyone for the nice compliments.  I'm glad you all enjoyed the pictures too!  Kelejan, yes, I have a while yet to go before those crocuses come up; usually mid-late April tongue But I'm trying to be patient!

You bet, Jimmy.  I'm positive the garden would be even more productive without the roots.  I have a little side garden next to my house that doesn't have any trees around, and it does amazing things.  Gotta love SF gardening and the fertile MM!
