Week eleven in the garden

The broccoli leaves look amazing and huge. We hope the broccoli crown will show up before the weather gets too hot.
As always, the kale outshines everything else in our garden.
Can you believe this is the flower that's on top of our green onions right now? Mommy thinks it is very pretty.
Our tomatoes were a major fail last year. (This was common with a lot of backyard farmers we know). But this year they look well on their way to producing lots and lots of fruit.
We are thrilled to be seeing tons of strawberries. We can already taste them.
The chives had a rough start last year. We've heard people say that everything does better the second year. We're so glad the chives stuck it out. Mommy loves cooking with chives...creme fraiche quiche, herbed eggs, mashed sweet potatoes, roasted veggies...the possibilities are endless.


  1. Your green onion flower is just beautiful, Teddy!

    Love ya lots,

  2. Broccoli and Strawberries?!? I'm so jealous. We hope they grow ripe soon. I'm sure your new tomatoes will be a hit.

    Thank you for dropping by and leaving me a message, Teddy and Sierra. Hugs. My mom is okay now.

    Huggies and Cheese,

  5. Wow! Look at your garden grow! Chives must like rain and cold, cuz that is the one thing that grows like a weed around here...ha-ha!

    It will be mid-June before we see any Strawberries, but it will be worth the wait :D


  6. Everything is growing so well! This is going to be a summer of plenty.
