Yes, we have a garden, and it's about time I posted some pictures.
Below you see the produce from the last couple of days, including our very first tomatoes.
I've fallen in love with fresh vegetable from the garden.
And here...is our vegetable garden. It includes tomato plants, yellow squash, hot peppers, and cucumbers.
This year, I cultivated a kitchen porch garden....with cherry tomato plants (thanks mom) and a mandevilla plant, with vinca growing along with it. And a few herbs in pots, that I was babysitting for my mom...
At the bottom of the kitchen steps.....well......
I had a three or four day stretch in the early summer of NO CHILDREN. They were at camp and on a trip with Grandma. So I made this:
A long-awaited and dreamed-for perennial bed...for color, scent, butterflies, bees, and herbs. It includes foxglove, bergamot, a butterfly bush that I can't remember the exact name for, patchouli, salvia and lavender.
Marigolds (in the vegetable garden)
And my little plot of herbs, near the vegetable garden...
Rosemary (also mint, oregano, and chives).
My little front bed has some begonias and these potted impatiens.
The front porch has a nice little spot...
And here's a corner of the back deck. I am in love with my garden this year.
