Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

What's growing In the garden - May 2015

I have gotten a really late start in planting my food garden this year, but I'm finally making some progress after a few weeks of weeding and planning. I know it's always fun to see what other people have growing, so I thought I'd compile a full list for you.

So, to make a long story short, here's what I've got planted and growing so far in my Seattle urban backyard:

Fruit
Sweet cherries
Pie cherries
Columnar apples - Golden Sentinel and Scarlet Sentinel
Mini dwarf Honeycrisp apple
Pear - 2 varieties: I finally have my first pear this year (damn rust)
Blueberries
Raspberries
Blackberries - I pulled out one bush as I get waaaay too many berries every summer
Pineberries - kind of like white strawberries that taste like pineapples
Strawberries
Plums - Hollywood
Grapes - 3 varietals - not great for eating, but good for jelly!
Rhubarb
Arbequina olive
Lime (indoors)

Vegetables
Onions
Leeks
Garlic
Green onions
Green lettuce
Red lettuce
Green beans
Shelling peas
Collard greens
Sweet corn
Yellow summer squash
Cucumbers
Asparagus

Herbs
Rosemary
Oregano
Lavender
Thyme
Italian flatleaf parsley
Cilantro
Sage
Chives
Bay

Other
Chickens (2) - my old ladies are still producing about a half dozen eggs a week

To be planted / transplanted this weekend
Carrots
Pumpkins
Corn
Tomatoes
Basil
Peppers
Watermelon
Cantaloupe


Phew! I think that's it. I still have a 4' x 4' raised bed of space to do some more planting in a few weeks. How is your garden going so far this year? Anything producing yet or is it still too cold?
