We’re on vacation right now but I wanted to share what the garden looked like before we left! Fingers crossed we get some rain while I am away. If we don’t, I fear some seedlings won’t make it.
I am very pleased with my tomato growing efforts this year. I am hoping that my absence from the garden for the week, doesn’t give them any setbacks. I have 7 or 8 green tomatoes like the ones above.
The kids have been growing carrots for a few years now. To liven things up this year we planted organic purple dragon carrots as well. 🙂 Our first batch is almost ready. They little gardeners picked a few too early but they were still delicious. (They taste like an orange carrot if you’re wondering).
All the herbs are doing great, especially the pineapple mint, sage & rosemary! I haven’t seen the rosemary grow so thick in years.
The lettuce & radishes are gone in the garden for now. We enjoyed over 54 heads of lettuce & had the opportunity to learn about saving lettuce seeds (post about this soon)!
The okra, green peppers & eggplant are getting bigger every day. I can’t wait to see their first blooms! Below: eggplant & okra about thirty days old.
Our lantana is blooming like crazy. It looks so bright & pretty in our backyard. Just another reason I love this time of year…
