Here's a quick look at the flower garden. It's got some sort of blight going on and killing the lillies, but there are so many that it's still pretty.
We also have a garter snake living in the garden. He suns himself in the lawn until he sees us coming, then he books it to hide in the lillies. I tried to get a pic of him the other day, but he's just too fast.
But here's some proof (with my foot for size comparison)
we've named him Pepper. Because he spices up our lives...
The herbs are doing pretty well. Though for some reason the thyme up and died. It was doing the best of all the herbs too. I guess it wanted to go out in a blaze of glory
basil, parsley, rosemary
Also the wildflowers I won from Summer actually seem to be doing quite well, regardless of the digging a squirrel did early on
what's taters, precious?
Here's a full pic of the whole veggie garden
From left to right again:
Asparagus and scallions. The empty spot in front of the scallions was supposed to be spinach. But apart from two little plants that came up under the Roma tomato plant, nothing emerged. sadface.
The scallions are awesome, because no matter how tiny they are, they still smell and taste amazing. We pulled a whole bunch to thin them out and put them in some fried rice.
The Roma tomato plant and the cherry tomato plant, which is about 5 feet tall.
They've both got tomaters growing.
Then we have the green beans behind the tomatoes.
Next is the golden bell pepper and the lilac bell pepper. The lilac already has peppers.
Behind them the peas! Peas are great because you can harvest them so much sooner than the other veggies.
The cantaloupe is spreading nicely. We're really hoping the melons turn out tasty, because nothing beats a sweet cantaloupe.
Then we have the lettuce:
And the carrots:
And finally the cucumber, which is crawling up the a-frame nicely
And the zucchini:
So there you have it. We're excited to be getting close to the time when we'll be able to eat some of the veggies.
How are your gardens coming?
