                        Dang looks good Ness!

 It was time to clean up lettuce and bok choy bed this morning.    We will be eating salad 97 ways. This is just half. I had bagged that amount already. 

thumbnail_0523200721a.jpg   Not sure what yet will take its place. Our snow peas look nice but no blooms yet. Tomato plants besides getting taller are putting on some girth.

My snow peas were filling out pods.

The two new bee hives I started off of existing have made their own queens and are a viable hive now.  I split them off May 1.  The two write off hives at the farm I thought were failing back in April have brooded up and I put supers on them today for a possible honey harvest.  Lots of blooms out now.

I really wanted to disc the garden today but run out of time.  The plow job I gave it 2 weeks ago was pretty well dried out.  But, I would have had to grease the disc and get  it ready, not enough time.  Never enough time...

Man, that's a lot of lettuce!! Those BilletHead pipes are gonna be clean!

My tomatoes and peppers are finally coming out of the cold-weather funk. Looking pretty good, even the one I thought was probably not going to make it. A few blossoms but not a lot.

Well my strawberries didn't turn out very good. Mold got the best of them. They looked ok a few days ago ,now 90% loss. Oh well they will flower again in a few weeks and I'll try again. They were really packed  tightly together and there was so much foliage the air circulation and light penetration below was practically non existent, and the 6" of rain didn't help, hence the mold problem. I picked enough to fill a cool whip tub to put on some ice cream. 

These two tomatoes are doing great!  They have blooms, 😉

I have harvested modest amounts of the sugar snaps twice. My bush tomatoes (cherry) popped out their first bloom today. Tulsa is a bit warmer than mot of the areas you guys live. For example strawberry season is nearly over.

😄Since the ground is nice and soft figured it was time to transplant more maters into the Earth. Last count there were 12 in the ground out of 44 total.  Usually transplant 4-5 a week. No hurry.

I just cut the bottom out of the pots and bury them in a pre dug hole. Works fine, these plants will be ready for their new homes in about 5-7 days

After a slow start (Death from above and below freezing) things are taking shape.

Wife and sister and busily picking strawberries and cherries and turning them into freezer jam.  2 batches of strawberry jam and one of "cherry berry", and sister went back to pick enough cherries to make a pie.  I am allowed to pick the strawberries along the edge of the raised bed but that is about all I am allowed to do for now.
