The corn and beans are up! We replanted the areas that did not come up... the weather has been a challenge this year! I have so many veggies up and growing... can't wait to have food! The roses are beyond gorgeous... this year they are just fabulous! That hard manic rain knocked a lot of my fruit off the trees...GRRRRR! Seems not to have hurt the citrus though! AHHH Well we needed the water!!! Well back to it!

 I have a heron visiting my water garden and eating my fish. I just put down bird netting- but the hardware store did not have quite enough. drat. I hope it and the bb gun helps discourage the heron from visiting my pond. The city pond is nearby and full of boring fish and bigger. It could go there instead of eating my koi and fancy goldfish that are my pets!
 My corn and cukes are up and roses are looking great. The Confederate jasmine is blooming and the gardenias have lots of buds! My  citrus trees are blooming and looking good. Mulberries are ripening- and I need to check on my Dewberries! Busy time here too!

OHHH I got the first red and yellow tomatoes a few days ago. The brandywines and the other heirlooms are loaded as are the "normal" plants. I got the first Japanese Eggplant today! YUMMMMMMY. I have been waiting for the food to come in! Hope this nice weather lasts... it was cool and we had small rain storms off and on all day! Means I don't have to water!!! Cat

 My cherry tomatoes are ripe and yummy and the heirlooms are getting there.
 I had my neighbor help me in my side garden. We cut tree limbs that shaded too much and hung over the driveway. it is looking great.
 I uncovered the stepping stones buried in mulch and transplanted Brugmansias and datura and Paraguay nightshade. All poisonous plants- but I like them.
 Now that faire is over I will have more time in the garden.

My Mom brought me some Sweet Potatoes at the beginning of May, when they were passing through on their Spring migration from south Texas to Minnesota.

We ate a couple, and one sat on my counter until it began sprouting.  Sometime last week, I cut off the end that was sprouting and planted it in a flower pot on the front porch of my apartment.  Some of the sprouts already have leaves.  The vine(s) should grow across the porch railing, but the pot isn't very big --- so I'm not expecting a big harvest.   ;)

After it grows a bit more, I'll post some pictures.

Take Care,

I'm moving from Minnesota to Colorado next week and my mom is letting me try my hand at transplanting some of her garden on CO.  I'm not quite sure what will all grow but does anyone know if rhubarb grows out there?

It probably will ... I know we had it growing around a lake house in western Idaho during the 1960's.  That area got 3 or 4 feet of snow during the Winters, so it survives in cold weather.  ;)
