Harvest Monday - May 12 2014

The very first alpine strawberry!

I am growing alpines "Golden Alexandria" the first year, I got 25 plants last month, most of them with flowers.

In general - we are starting to eat greens regularly, I mean every day. It is not much yet, leaf here, leaf there, but still counts.

I got 2 first radishes today, and they are so small! I do not have luck growing them, they always bolted.

 An there are some more pictures from May's garden.

I built new trellis for Italian tomatoes last weekend. My beds are on the slope and at the end of the summer my bamboo trellises are usually folding down.
 So I made "something" stronger and taller. Tomatoes here are Roma, Viva Italia and some of the Striped cavern.
 I like how my kale bed is looks like, I sprinkled some of the iron bites this spring to get rig of snails that always make me crazy.
 My oversized tomatoes is doing so-so,
lower leaves are yellow, top leave are good, green and strong.
 Yesterday my mom called me and asked - where is your cuces? and really&
I have only 8 plants.
 Cuces are on the left, borago are on the rights.
So I planted more, CHinahlong, Palace King, Suyo and Spacemaster.

Blueberries are blooming.

 Peppers too! Can you see the little bud? I planted them out last week on the black fabric.

Strawberries are good, blooming.

 My garden looks more like vertical now.

 I am not happy with my beets, they germinated poorly, I believe I will overseed them this week. I have some in left container here.

Shared at: Daphne’s Dandelions “Harvest Monday” where everyone can share links to their harvest or how they are using their harvests for the week.


  1. Your garden looks so beautiful now! It really has expanded!

  2. The kale bed looks very nice. Mine is bolting right now. Hopefully I'll get some side shoots before I have to take the plants down.

  3. Congrats on your first strawberry! It looks delicious. I have problems with radishes bolting too. They seem to do better for me in the fall. Our springs always go from cold to hot way too quickly.
