Promises

Each year in the garden as the weather and soil  consistency change, I see different results for my plants. For the last two years we only had a few handfuls of blueberries because they bloomed early, then freezing weather came and froze the blooms. This year we have had an abundance of blueberries that make up for the lack of the two previous years.

Some years we get tomatoes, other years the weather and soil create diseases that prevent good tomatoes from developing. So far this year is looking good. Our tomatoes were planted later, but we have plenty of green ones on the vines right now that look promising.

One of the amazing things to me this year is my chrysanthemums that I planted last fall in pots. I have never had them bloom so early. They are full of buds right now and some of the flowers are opening up, in July.

I can’t wait to see these plants when all the buds have opened.

The garden has required a lot of work to get it to this point, but it shows great promise for a good harvest.
