Strawberries for Miss J

I promised a little friend of mine that I would post some photos of strawberry flowers. So here they are Miss J. First the flowers...

Next you can see the strawberry beginning to form...

And finally a strawberry almost ready to eat...


As for the rest of the garden it is growing quite well. The storms last weekend did leave everything looking very limp but it has recovered over the week.
Cucumbers...
Corn...

Tomatoes...
Lady bug on a rockmelon (cantelope) plant...

And finally my foopah...


I thought I was cutting back the cucumber but instead it was rockmelon and of course the only two fruit that have formed. The kids and I will cut them this afternoon to investigate how they grow as I think that they are too underdeveloped to ever ripen. I am going to be in big trouble this afternoon from my rockmelon loving children and with prices around $5 at the moment they are not coming from the shop.

This final photo shows just how strong the winds and rain were during the storms last weekend...
Normally you can walk between the house and the garden. We have quite a few other bushes and trees in the same sorry state. They will have to be trimmed during the week.

Keep smiling :-)
