My weekend in the garden was spent checking the progress of our seedlings, watering, and weeding (no matter how much mulch we put down, the weeds always sneak in). We harvested a handful of strawberries and pulled the first onion that had a top that was fairly brown and falling over. I'm not sure what I was expecting, something bigger maybe? It looks slightly bigger than the bulb we planted. The other onions still have bright green stems shooting straight up, so we're going to leave them alone for a little longer until they start turning brown.
I also planted another set of sunflowers: Coconut Ice hybrid. The blooms are supposed to come out pale yellow/white. This year we're growing four varieties: Mammoth, Chianti hybrid, Teddy Bear, and the Coconut Ice.
Other than that, we're in a holding pattern now, just waiting for things to develop fruit. I'm linking to Sweet Bean Gardening's Hope Grows post. For June, I'm hoping for equal parts sun and rain so that my seedlings keep growing strong, and I hope they set fruit so I can have a good harvest in July and August. That's not too much to ask for, right?
