The Coming Harvest

I can almost taste it. We have lots of things setting up around the yard right now.

I have lots of little tomatoes.

I actually have plants that produce 4 different colors or tomatoes. They all have fruit on them. Some more than others. I have an issue with sun in the yard, so they are scattered about. I have very high hopes for a reasonable harvest.

The citrus is setting up nicely.

This particular one is an orange. And it's not mine. I'm babysitting it while its momma waits to close on her house. They had to move into an apartment for a few months and there just wasn't room for everything there. It's very nerve wracking watching someone else's plants. I'm so worried something will happen to them.

I still have some lettuce we are eating on. I don't expect it to last much longer as the days are getting quite warm. We are expected to crack 90 degrees later in the week.

There are a few beans that are growing but not exactly thriving. We'll have to see whether or not they make it. I have some onions about ready to be picked. I'm just hoping they are doing wonderful things underground. I've never grown them before and don't hold out much hope.

And of course, there are the girls. They are happy as clams in this weather and doing their duty. Eggs every day.

Next up, the herbal garden.

I am a little jealous! None of mine are even in the ground yet. We have been getting unusually warm weather here but I'm not taking any chance. It could be warm today and who knows tomorrow will be freezing, that's upstate NY weather.

Lucky!!! We've barely dug our toes into spring. We just had a very hard frost the other day.

I live vicariously through you, you know.
