|Bob and I went to a yard sale and picked up 2 of these bears...I love them!|
Anyhow, enough bitching and that jazz...it is time to share what I've been up to in my yard...and my neighbor's yard, because they are super cool and let me have the use of their yard to expand my garden. They will get their pick of whatever produce they want for doing that!
|Loofah gourd, started from seed in a peat pellet.|
And, yet, more tomatoes...we really dig tomatoes around here, if you can't tell!
My largest raised bed is all planted up with Glass Gem Corn and various types of beans...both bush and runners. I have everything from Asian Red Noodle Beans to bush limas and bush kidneys planted in there.
|Even more tomatoes!! There is also comfrey, thyme and lavender there, too...I'll place them later on.|
|The gutter garden!|
|Gourds from my friend SuZan!|
|The front yard.|
|The side of the driveway and Joan's front yard and part of her in-ground garden that we spent a day digging.|
|This is Ralph's pansy. It is on it's 3rd year. I got it from the farmers market and Ralph loved it. I finally found him one last summer. I'll keep this as long as it wants to grow. Ralph just loved this pansy!|
|Five types of radishes...from daikon to watermelon...they are growing in this box.|
|My peas are coming right along.|
|Cabbages and Romanesco (alien) broccoli|
|My front raised bed and all the stuff growing by it, like garlic and lettuces.|
|One of the petunias that I picked up from the Longview farmers market this last weekend.|
|This is my new favorite petunia. It's called Moonlight Eclipse. It is gorgeous with the green ring around the purple. I'm going to attempt to winter this over in my greenhouse.|
