I have mentioned the wild fruit growing on my plot before. Today as I walked around the plot I really noticed how many wild/native plants which are growing here. I saw lots of Salal, Oregon Grape, Elderberry and Salmonberries. Parts of the plot are a sea of blue Forget-Me-Nots!
Today I was really taken with the beautiful flowers on the Evergreen Huckleberry. This time of year they are covered in delicate pink flowers which in July will be full of lovely tart berries. I really like mixing them with blueberries and serving with slightly sweetened cream.
The plants in the greenhouse are starting to take off with the warmer days. I have flowers on my tomatoes and they are already over 12 inches tall! I am feeling good about the 2017 tomato crop.
I always start calla lily and begonia tubers in the greenhouse and they will be ready to go out in a couple of weeks. I love growing them this way as I get to pick the specific type and color I want.
Here are some other lovely things growing in the greenhouse now!
