It’s that busy time of the year where there’s lots of work to be done in the garden. I love this time of the year but I do find it very exhausting. Everything from planning it all out to planting and mulching, takes time and is a lot of hard work. I always breathe a sigh of relief once it’s all in and mulched.
Pictured above is a chive plant that came back from last year. I think the purple flowers are so pretty and they actually smell good… never knew they could bloom so pretty or smell so good!
Here is red leaf romaine lettuce and head lettuce is planted behind it. It had a rough start because it got smashed by an enormous cardboard box that got blown on top of it, but luckily it managed to grow back. I had put the box in the garden and planned to use it to mulch a weedy area in the walkway, but a windy day came along before I had the chance to get it done.
Here are the potatoes, green beans, cucumbers, and radishes.
In this picture I have green bell peppers, tam jalapeno peppers, romaine lettuce, and sugar baby watermelon planted. The bricks are used to cover them when we have storms coming. In fact, I just got in from covering as much as I could because a storm is heading this way. We have a very stormy day forecasted for our area; just hoping we don’t get anything too severe and the garden can make it through without too much damage to the garden.
The majority of it is in, up and growing. I still have a few things I want to plant, like more cucumbers, cantaloupe, honey dew melon, and sweet potatoes. I’m sure I’ll probably find a few more things to try when I visit the green house here soon. 🙂 If you would like to have a more detailed explanation of everything we have planted, check out this video walk through of our garden:
And here is what my garden looks like as I type this…..
about as ready as it can be for any storms that might be headed this way.
