I've got six garlic sprouts coming up. Back in April, I asked my brother about his garlic harvest. And he warned me - they will grow fast. He was right - these things are shooting right up. I can't wait to harvest. I think this is going to be a garden staple!
And look, the new strawberry bushes are already getting red fruit!
But not everything in the garden is all rosey. All four roses bushes have buds (I expect Chicago Peace will bloom first) but they also have aphids! They all got a bath in nice soapy water, so we'll see if that's enough.
And you'll notice I said four roses bushes... not five. Yep - they white one didn't make it. The little sprouts it was trying to push up just withered away. I'll probably pull her out of the ground on the weekend.
And my lettuce in my salad bowl is bolting.
So, I've bought some seeds for sweet mesculin mix. I'll remove the bitter lettuce and plant some of my own and see if I do any better.
