May Garden 2011

There are a lot going on in my garden this month.  But the two standouts would be my first and only cherry on our Minnie Royal Cherry tree, and the return of the “volunteer” hollyhocks in my front garden:

The Minnie Royal is a new low chill sweet cherry compatible with our climate/region.  I did plant another cherry tree, the Royal Lee, but it did not fruit this year.  They are both planted in my back citrus grove.

I am really glad the hollyhocks came back this season.  In my excitement and haste, I harvested all the seeds to share with people.  But, fortunately, there were some seeds that managed to spread and grow.  Now if I could only find takers for all those seeds…


  1. Beautiful pink shade of flowers!

  2. You have extra seeds? I have empty dirt!!
