Plenty of New Pictures!

"How's the garden doing?" People keep asking me this question, so I decided it was time to add updated pictures. Enjoy!

First, a beautiful stargazer lily in the lily bed.




Then the veggies and herbs…….

A View of the Whole Garden


Cattle Panel Trellis


Cucumber Trellis


Pole Bean Trellis


One of the broccoli plants, with garlic planted at the corners and a lonely carrot that migrated. (See it in the bottom left-hand corner?)


Onions


Scallions (I think I need to thin these!)


Pretty Spinach


Bibb Lettuce (I think the slugs have been snacking….ggggrrrrrrrr!)


My Pathetic Attempt at a Snap Pea Trellis


The Peas Seem To Like It, Though!


Triple Treat Pumpkins


Jack ‘O Lanterns


Better Boy Tomatoes (…with some lettuce underneath! No, those aren’t weeds. J My trellis didn’t fit where I wanted it and the lettuce had just been planted. I figured I would harvest it as baby lettuce instead of ripping it all out.)


Patio Tomatoes and Ground Cherries (Just planted so no sprouting there yet.)


More Patio Tomatoes


One of my patio tomatoes has a flower! Should I pinch it off? They’re not very tall yet.
So there it is so far. I hope to add some close-ups of individual plants tomorrow so you can see some of my herbs and things. I’m having so much fun!

Where did you get the cattle fencing for between the beds? That is ingenious!
