I promised I wouldn't update my garden posts until the end of the month, or the first part of June. Because so much has happened since I last showed the garden, I thought, because there was a lull in the storms, hail, and high winds, I would show you what I've accomplished in my veggie garden and flower bed.
My two mint plants (black pots on left and right of photo) look like they will be back, even after I feared I had lost both.
The plant in the middle pot is my lone bell pepper I bought at the garden center. I had no room for it in the ground, so got desperate. The last time anyone saw that black pot, it was filled with ants, which are now thankfully gone.
The two large white pots in the back have mesclum starting to sprout.
The pots in the back part of the photo are from left, the other pot of mesclum, a new sage to replace the one I lost last winter, and spicy thyme, which apparently died when I brought it outside and didn't give it time to acclimate to the sun.
The two white pots in the lower part of the photo are sporting mint.
One is lemon, one orange. They were from the garden center. You don't have to tell me I have a lot of weeding to do, which I will start as soon as I put my camera away.
Sage and now dried up thyme.
Now we're getting into the basils and cilantro. In front is rosemary, which is doing well after it was released into the garden a few weeks ago.
The row of white pots holds either sweet basil or cilantro/coriander. The pot at the far back is my lavendar, which may or may not make it, since it also was put into the sun too soon.
The row of black pots hold the basil I purchased on herb day, while the front black pot holds stevia.
I finally got all my tomato plants in the ground.
On the left are the two Romas I bought on Herb Day and on the right are the Sweet 100 plants I got at the garden center.
I definitely need to thin the radishes which are surprisingly plentiful.
Of course, I had to take a photo of the overall garden, which is 10 feet long by 4 feet wide (3,05 meters X 1,22 meters) and even holds a compost container at both ends.
I can't forget my blackberry, which started quite small, but has now
taken over the entire back fence.
The blooms are incredibile.
Aren't they beautiful?
The blackberry flowers outshine my flower bed, that's for sure. The flower bed doesn't look too bad here,
but when I back up a bit, you can see how destructive the winds and hail have been.
At least my grass isn't as high as my neighbor's.
In a way, it looks a bit like an alpine garden in this area.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope to be by for a visit later today, but right now, I am either working hard in my craft room on art, or working in my veggie garden trying to show all the weeds and sprouting seeds who is the boss. It's apparently not me, though. Again, I appreciate your visit.
