Berries are already coming in!!!

We were given some great thornless boysenberry plants from a friend, the Toad and I transplanted them 2 weeks ago and they are already flowering!!! The raspberries, blackberries and blueberries we planted last year are thriving and I am looking forward to homemade jam this season. :)

We also got the tomatoes and peppers planted. We are trying to outsmart the deer this year since they ate all our stuff last year. Downside of living in the country, we have critters. In any case, the Toad was a huge help to me and we got several plants done in hanging planters. Take that deer.

All the herbs I planted last year are doing fantastic even though our weather has been wonky. Today it is in the mid 70's, two days ago it was pouring rain and foggy... We have had temps hit the high 80's and we've also had hail in the last month. Mother nature is going through the change. But, our plants have been troopers, so I'm not too upset. We just added spearmint, tarragon and sage to the herb garden. I'm hoping they do as well as the ones we already have.
