Tuesday Garden Party-Late …..sorry…..I have Lupus….my new excuse for everything!

I have a great picture this week:

The tiniest little frog between the leaves of the rose I had just clipped off before the petals all fell to the ground.

We have had a lot of success with our strawberries.  This is their second year and I expect even more next year.  I have been using Sluggo Plus to keep the yuckies away:

Some are really big:

So once again I made the shortcakes that DH was bragging to our neighbor about.  I confessed they were off the Bisquick box, but I read the recipe wrong and added 1/4 cup of sugar instead of 3 tablespoons.  The 1/4 cup was for the strawberries, but I don’t add any sugar to the strawberries, just lots of whipped cream….a staple in our house, bought in the 3 pack from Costco!

It’s not as much fun without my sweet granddaughter here.  But then life in general is not as fun, but I am getting more done!

I plan to get some pictures of my squash and tomatoes next week since they are looking great!  With DH having the bout of pneumonia and in the hospital in late May and me with my new diagnosis, things are not as “organized” in the garden areas as they should be.  I was hoping for 2 more raised beds this year AND a new planter for the front yard, but it’s not happening.  The new patio is nice though!

Can’t wait to see what everyone else has been doing over at www.anoregoncottage.com.
