Some Mid May Garden Photos
Some of the green onions that I planted in the fall last season survived over the winter and are flowering now. I usually plant any onions that we don’t eat that are left over in the refrigerator. They kind of get dried out and less appetizing when refrigerated for too long.
Usually the green onions perk back up after being planted – sometimes they grow and sometimes they don’t. I can harvest some of the onions all season if we don’t eat them faster than they can grow, but in the winter they don’t grow much. They taste much better when freshly harvested from the garden.
I’m planing on spreading these onions around the garden more after the flowers mature.
Some petunia flowers growing in a hanging basket on our porch:
Some buttercups were growing in our yard among the grass. Daisies and buttercups grow all over our yard. I like to let many different types of plants like clover, moss and flowers, grow in with the grass and don’t like to put weed killer on the yard.
The birds really like to eat the seeds and bugs in the yard. I noticed a smaller bird eating the dandelion seeds this morning.
The starling who’s egg I put back in the birdhouse, has some new baby birds now. The mom is very busy feeding the young birds and you can here them chirping loudly when she comes home with food.
Here’s some of the Swiss chard and bok choy being prepared for stir frying:
Cooking it up. All kinds of good vegetables are great for stir frying together for dinner. Not everything is from the garden but a lot of it is.
A nice plate of food prepared at home:
Fresh food from the garden is really wonderful in flavor. I think this year the garden soil is producing better food from the use of compost and mulch. Potatoes, corn, carrots, beans, artichokes and lettuce are coming up. The asparagus I planted last season is coming up again and should be ready for limited harvesting next year. The rosemary is flowering and bushing out very nicely this year too as well as many other herbs.
