What's Growing Wednesday

I thought I would do things a little differently around here today, since my vegetable garden is making slow progress right now. I don't want to bore you with the same pictures week after week. So I thought I would focus more on our fruit trees/plants/bushes today. Deal?

Our blueberry plants are doing really well in their planters and all three of them have berries on them, just not all of them are ripe. But we have tasted a few and so far so good.

Our apple trees are growing quite steadily and they have for sure filled out significantly in the past 3 years. Unfortunately, we aren't really getting any fruit from them yet. One tree has none and the other only has two apples and they are both already a little worm eaten. Oh well.

I shared a picture of one of our pear trees last week so I didn't retake it. But we do have two new pear trees that we hope will take this time and not die on us.

We have four raspberry plants in the back yard which seem to be surviving. We really need to look into how to maintain them better though, before they go too wild on us.

I just keep dreaming about the day I'll be able to pop out to the back yard for some fresh berries to put on my cereal. Ten more years should do the trick.

Our rhubarb is nearing the end of its season but is still slowly growing so I may get one more picking out of it. If not, I am happy with the amount I have frozen. But it is nice to see how well it has done in the year we've had it.

So that is a quick overview of the other plants we have growing at our place. Maybe next time I need a break from the veggie garden I'll show off my flowers. Not that there is much to show off.


  1. Nice! I want to eat your blueberries :)

  2. Jackie - Haven't you scared down enough already? ;)
