Garden News

A while back I posted about the beginning of our garden for the year.  Since then, seeds have been sprouting and other veggies and herbs have been planted.

Our peas have shot up and have blooms.  We can't wait for the pods to appear.  Last year not many peas made it out of the garden.  Eva would pick them as soon as they appeared and eat them right in the yard!
The carrots have also been growing away and we should soon have a harvest.
Here are a few of the other plants we have growing in our kitchen garden:

Tomatoes- Roma and cherry with lemongrass and dill in the planter
Eggplant (with two little guys starting to grow!)
Zucchinis
Cucumbers
Peppers- jalapenos, poblanos, habaneros, cubanelles and cayennes
Lettuce
Parsley and cilantro
Basil and purple basil
Oregano and rosemary
Sage and marjoram
Kale
Butternut squash
Watermelon
Pumpkin
And for the first time, we are trying an upside down tomato plant.
Our roses are also blooming beautifully!
And my favorite flower- peonies!
What do you have growing in your garden?

  1. Amazing! That is a beautiful garden. Our's is in full "bloom" too right now with everything growing fast. Sam and Avery are loving all the changes and even the weeding that we have to do right now!
