Plants around the farm

This is a garden/plant update.


The peanuts have come up.The corn is getting big.

Lilies in the front.
Hollyhocks in the garden. The previous owner had just thrown these seeds back there and forgotten all about them. They came up this spring.
What is this bush? We have tons of them.
The pea jungle.
Baby apples.

Peanuts! Now there's something I've never thought of trying...

I could be wrong, but that bush looks like the azalea that I planted this spring. Hopefully you'll get a 2nd opinion because ID-ing things ain't my specialty. :)

It's fun to see things develop around the country... so many different variables.

All looks great Christy. Oh, I so adore hollyhocks on a country farm.

I love pictures of other's flowers and garden varieties. Even with no rain here lately, seems all I've been doing is watering and talking about weeding..haven't quite gotten there yet.

Sue said...

Your lilies are gorgeous....and the hollyhocks. I love em!
Everything looks so nice!

I love the lilies. Is that where we dug up all the junk when I was there? They really look nice. The hollyhocks remind me of my grandmother; she always had them in her back yard. Your veggies are really growing; must be all the rain you are having. Sure hope my tomatoes do as well as you peas seem to be doing.

I planted peanuts this year too...I cannot wait to see how they turn out. Have you planted them before?

Wow - your apples are so much farther along than mine are...I can't believe you've got tiny apples on your trees already.

I sure hope you'll post pics on how the peanuts turn out. Inquiring minds want to experiment..uh, I meant know!

LOL..everything looks fab! And I sort recognize that pea jungle when I go out back. I find it gets hard to find the pods when it gets like that. Little bit like pushing through the amazon when searching out those tender gems, isn't it?

Very nice! My neighbor planted peanuts a few years ago and when he harvested them they were done "southern" style--boiled! Very different. This spring I planted two bare root apple trees and each of them has one apple already! Very cool. ☺

Christy said...

Ron, I don't think it is an azalea. We have lots of those and they look different.

Mom - yep that is where we dug up the junk. Turns out the junk was the lilies. Luckily, we only dug up 3 of them. But I need to move the blueberries now since the lilies take up that whole area.

Warren - it is my first time with peanuts. It will be interesting to see what happens.

Christy - it is hard to find the peas. This fall, I'll plant them in a row to make it easier to find them. I also plan on planting a lot more so I can freeze some this fall.

I can't wait to see how those peanuts grow, and what kind of harvest you get. How much corn are you growing? How exciting!

I'm not what that one bush is, but I think your lilies are actually daffodils.

Wow! Looks like you're gonna need a taller trellis for your vigorously growing peas.

Everything looks great around your farm!

I think it's a spirea, not sure what variety.

The raised beds look lovely!

Christy said...

Danielle - it is spirea, I looked it up last night. I'd been thinking it was spirea since we moved in but was too lazy to confirm it.

Lisa, nope their lilies. Daffodils have totally different foliage and bloomed 2 months ago here.

Carla said...

your peanuts remind me, I need to go check on ours, your bush is a spirea (I have one two). Looking good:) Love your daylilies:)

Wendy said...

I wish I could grow peanuts :). I grew up in the south, and boiled peanuts are a wonderful treat.

Your garden looks lovely ;).

Christy said...

Wendy - You should see the garden now! It is overtaken with weeds. I'm having to go out every evening just to keep my plants from being swallowed. Yikes!
