Top Stories from the Garden

May 13, 2012

Top stories from the garden:

The thyme is flowering…and apparently that is okay. Most of the time when we want the leaves, I get concerned when flowers grow. However, thyme flowers are edible and once you cut them away the plant will keep growing.

We’ve had mixed success with the tomato transplanting. The plants were pretty little when we put them in, so we knew it was a bit risky. Two of them are looking really good, three seem okay but haven’t grown much, and one didn’t make it. Luckily we kept some extras as back up. They will be competing to take over the sixth tomato spot.

We have lots of strawberries! We’ve already harvested quadruple the total we got last summer (which was 2), and it looks like there are going to be lots more.
