With silver bells and cockle shells (what the heck are those anyway) and pretty maids (last time I checked, I didn’t have a maid, I’m the maid) all in a row. Yes that is stolen from a nursery rhyme but I had nothing else to start this post. It’s about my small but blossoming and blooming garden. I have not killed anything!!! That is reason to celebrate. This is my garden about 1 month ago.
Over the past few years I have attempted to keep a flower garden in various parts of my yard. Most years the weeds take over about 1 month into the growing season and I realize I have wasted all my money. I also forget to water things. When we first moved here I actually did grow tomatoes one year and had a small crop of yummy tomatoes but never enough for more than a salad.
Times have changed! I am happy to report, in pictures that my garden is doing great. Here are the three varieties of tomatoes that I am growing. Cherry, Early Girl and Roma plum:
See that clump of cherry tomatoes? This plant is covered in these little clumps with more flowering daily. Now look at theseEarly Girl tomatoes growing from that Topsy Turvy!
Here are the Roma plum looking healthy.
I have a pepperoncini plant, two basil plants and oregano. Look at those peppers!
The herbs are growing really healthy and I use a lot of the basil in my cooking. I need to make some pesto soon. I’ll leave you with this last picture of the basil and oregano in a planter. I did plant some basil in a separate pot so that I can bring it in for the rest of the year, after summer is over.
Sorry one more because my son Caleb is doing a great job with his indoor garden of cacti, bamboo and air plants to name a few.
