We've had swallows, but not as many hummingbirds are usual. Usually the red yucca is a prime hummingbird attraction and I've only seen them occasionally so far. That sounds like a pretty good garden to me!We've pooped out on our big vegie garden this year, I'm ashamed to say.........Just have tomatoes, onions, potatoes, and some herbs growing.......but we do have plenty of flowers! Especially humming bird attracting types........IF they ever get here! I'm really upset that our normal hummers OR the swallows haven't shown up! What gives???
What are the espaliered trees supported on? I am ready for a season change here, too.I had a bad last season with Cucumbers too Marsha. Your espalier trees look wonderful. My SIL has 6 of them , I pinched one of her mandarins off the tree last week and it was really nice.
Im very much looking forward to getting back out in the garden. Its been such a cold crappy winter here and I am hanging for some sunshine
Sorry. The giant sunflower is tin. It goes in the garden every year. I helped judge at a Fair last week and there were two giant sunflowers entered. Also saw a field of sunflowers near us for the first time. I wonder how they are harvested?[/quote
Bummer about that sunflower lol, it looks like the real deal in the picture. I wonder if the field by you is grown for seeds or for flowers? Either way, what a happy crop to grow.
