After a weekend of hard work, it's rewarding to see a little garden green!
There's so much green in the garden these days. Thankfully we've had some rain to keep things growing sans-hose. Right now I've a wide variety of veg outside:
French Breakfast Radishes
Beets - chioggia & golden
Golden & Rainbow Chard
Herbs: chervil, chives, dill, cilantro, thyme, sage, rosemary, lavender, and I'm trying to coax my mint, lemongrass and lemon verbena back to life
Wow - that's more than I thought!
Things are coming along in the basement too. Some plants are not ready to venture outside, I still have evenings that get frosty. For now, these plants are growing indoors under florescent bulbs:
Tomato: orange pixie, pruden's purple & purple cherokee
Sweet bell peppers
Hot peppers: passilla, poblano, fish, cayenne, and jalapeño
Eggplant - one measly seed sprouted. I'm thinking about a last minute order...
Herbs: genovese basil, thai Basi, and marseilles basil
No vegetable garden is complete without bait for the pollinators! Here's my flower plan:
Queen Sopihia Marigolds
English Daisies (I love them even if they are considered a weed!)
Zinnias - bright green
A few flowers are bursting outside too:
I'm sure I forgot something...or will fall prey to the delights of my local garden center. I was especially prudent - sort of- with my garden budget this year. I joined a new CSA, full share, and I'm a little nervous/intimidated/anxious/excited. Sould be quite an adventure!
