Hello and welcome to my first gardening update for 2012! We're one week in and so far everything looks pretty good!
The Bush Goliath tomato plant already has two little green toms on it:
And, the Big Beefsteak has some blossoms:
I'm SO looking forward to some big, juicy, delicious tomatoes this summer!
Here are my little bell peppers. They both have little buds on them, but one seem to be growing faster than the other.
The rest of the backyard is doing very well, too. In fact, a little TOO good. I'll have to do some trimming here pretty soon! Those stupid cat mint bushes are outrageous again! AND, they're SPREADING!!!
The yellow flowers are coming back in full force - they're so pretty!
Speaking of full force, I can't believe how well these white flowers have come back. I thought they were just annuals, and over the winter we didn't even water them!
I found this little fella sunning himself on one of my dry creekbed rocks:
Turning to the front yard, my two miniature roses seem to be doing okay - there's new growth on both of them - but there are no new buds! I don't know if they're going to bloom again, and I'm going to have to remove the dying blooms pretty soon.
