I finally finished the giant weeding project! Now, on to more fun things.

Baby peaches

It looks like hand pollinating the mini peach trees in the greenhouse was successful.  Both trees have set a lot of fruit. 

Lettuce box

The lettuce boxes we built a few years ago continue to be useful.  I have spring lettuce mix sprouting in this box on our front deck.

New strawberry bed

The new strawberry bed contains a mixture of transplants from the existing strawberry bed and newly purchased plants.  Behind the strawberry bed (at the top of the photo), you can see the asparagus bed.

Asparagus shoots

Asparagus shoots are beginning to emerge in the asparagus beds.  I don’t plan on harvesting any this year, however, as it takes a few years for an asparagus bed to become established.

Raspberry bed

The raspberries are sending out a lot of new canes, so I am hoping we’ll have a nice crop this year.

Oh, no sign of the orchard mason bees yet.  We keep checking but it appears they haven’t hatched. It should be any day now.

    The weeding project turned out beautiful! If you have any energy left, I have some landscaping beds that need similar treatment. 😉

    How exciting that you have baby peaches to show for your pollination efforts! Everything looks like it is coming along really well. Our asparagus is coming up now too. Harvested the first few shoots but the real emergence is just getting started.
