This young viburnum has had some struggles. A few years ago, my husband accidentally scalped it with the weed eater. Undoubtedly it would have been easier to replace it, but sucker that I am [feel free to substitute sucker with stubborn] I wanted to see if pampering it would help it recover. Well it did and to thank me, bloomed beautifully this spring.
We also had wild plums and blueberries!
A friend of mine gave me an old arbor which I plan to use next year to train muscadines. Those are strawberries in the hanging baskets and tomatoes on the vines.
My son and I planted a single watermelon seed in 2012 which produced a massive vine with tons of juicy watermelons. We get volunteer vines every year since from the composted seeds. They were not so sweet this year so I don't think I'll keep any other volunteer vines that come up. It was good while it lasted!
In the next few weeks, I hope to purchase and plant pansies in the front around the birdbath and fire hydrant. I'm also thinking about planting a winter garden. We'll see.
Here's hoping you have enjoyed your garden as much as I have mine. :)
