The garden is in full swing this month! We are enjoying daily fresh radishes, lettuce & carrots! We have green tomatoes on our plants, something that is somewhat of an accomplishment because I have horrible luck with growing tomatoes.
Early sunflowers & marigolds are blooming for our pollinators & we have been starting new seeds almost every chance we get. Leeks are just sprouting & we are waiting on more basil, sunflowers & onions to sprout.
I walked to a local farmers market last week & came home with more than just fresh collard greens. These herbs (basil & Vicky’s plant) followed me home as well. 🙂 We replanted them in these homemade chalkboard pots. The little gardeners loved helping me mark them. 🙂
Eggplant & green pepper plants are getting big in the garden & we look forward to their first blooms! Something has been munching on them a little but this is something that comes with sustainable gardening & I think they will be just fine.
Earlier this month we read a great post by The Gardening Mom on our Facebook feed about making a home for the frogs & toads in the garden! We gave it a try last weekend & are still hoping for a new residence to move in! 🙂
