"Garden" update

In an attempt to get this blog back on track, I'm posting a garden update. I'm reluctant to call it a garden since it is just a very few pots on the deck, but it is what I have right now.

These strawberry plants are from last year. The overwintered outside in the pots with no protection. They've come back strong even after being ignored since last fall.

My peas are growing pretty well. When I transplanted them they all looked terrible!

My cute banana tree just keeps putting out new leaves. It is very exciting!

About half of my tomatoes. They are doing well, although a few are getting yellow spots on their leaves. I'll need to look up what that means.

And my apple tree. Remember when this was just a stick with no leaves? It is amazing how this thing came to life and is growing like crazy. I can't wait to get it into the ground and give it a permanent home!

Last year my "grape" tomato plant started getting yellow spots on its leaves and if I remember correctly I read that it is some sort of blight. I just kept picking the leaves off as I never did find any solution to blight. If you find something let me know as I'm planting another tomatoe plant this summer.

Thanks mom. I'll look that up and see if it looks right. I was thinking it was lack of sun but I could be wrong.

The strawberry plants do look good.
I love the banana tree.
I don't know about the tomatoes. I would also try just picking those leaves off.
What part of Georgia are you moving to? North, Middle, south?
We may be close to each other soon.
I have also been through the house selling part and people can hurt your feelings. I had mine hurt. Some would make rude remarks and then one day when you least expect it, someone buys it.
Just hang in there. Good luck.

Thanks for the encouragement! We are moving to Jackson county, northeast of Atlanta. I'm trying to not have my feelings get hurt, but it is hard.

Wow! That lawn is just so darn a neon green sign...and so perfectly manicured!

I haven't seen grass like that since we lived in South Carolina.

And all your plants and especially the strawberries look awesome!

Yes, we have a very green lawn. We've had a lot of rain this spring! Come mid-summer it will be pretty brown. Hopefully we will be gone by then and it will be someone else's brown lawn LOL.
