Ahh, late May in central Texas. I don't try too hard, but so far here's what's happening:
Dill and cilantro have had their season. Basil is great and I need to get a few more varieties going.
Sage, curry leaf, parsley,Mexican and Italian oregano doing wonderfully.
Thyme is holding on but I expect it to fade out by mid-June.
4 tomato plants - all but one have fruit. The one is isolated and I may move it closer to the others.
4 types of potatoes, 4 bins, everyone still hanging in there. I'm using grow bags for 3 of them. We haven't had the heat until the past two weeks, so maybe I'll get at least as many potatoes as I planted. Last year, I had 16 plants and I got 3 spuds. Some kind of larval demon ate all the leaves off in a two day period and they never recovered.
Fig trees are loaded with fruit so maybe the squirrels will leave us one or two for our dessert.
Meyer lemon tree is full of fruit but a lot of it has dried up. Again, if anything lasts, the squirrels will probably get them.
The new grape vine was full of flower clusters but I do believe the birds finished them off. It's okay because it really should put down another year of growth before putting the energy into fruit.
I had a whole yard of volunteer pumpkins but they're finished. Too dry.
We're in Critical Stage drought here, no outdoor watering. I fill the pots, fill the bird baths and hope for the best. That's also why I don't get too upset with the wildlife scavengers. They're short on water, short on food.
With all of our running and all of our cunning, If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane...
