I have not posted much about my garden. I thought I would share a few pictures of how things are growing!
The above picture is the welcome sign made on a piece of old barn wood. I used old springs to spell Welcome. A fun recycling project.
These are my Costalvo heirloom tomato's! My four plants are loaded. Cant wait to try them.
These Tomato's are Black Krim! My favorite! My plants are pretty loaded with these babies too. I make marinara and pizza sauce with these. Soon they will turn almost a burgundy color.
This here is what I call my Tomato jungle! I have 12 plants in here. Giant Smooth, Costalvo and German Green with a pepper plant in the right hand corner.
In this garden bed I have Green beans in the back growing on a trellis. Peppers on the sides and Cucumbers in the middle. My Cucumbers are just getting started.
These are the beans in the garden bed with the Peppers and Cucumbers. I made this trellis from the wire mesh of a bed frame.
Basil, yum! One of my favorite herbs. Lots of Basil throughout my garden.
This is my Squash area. Some Tomato's to the right and Tomitillo's on the left. The walking steps are made by my kids.
A better view of the Tomitillo's. My bean trellis's. I just planted Christmas Lima beans. Can't wait to see how the trellis works out. Also made from recycled bed frames.
My Strawberry bed. Not many Strawberry's yet! I did start these plants from seed. Mixed in I have Garlic and Chard. The Chard is starting to look old. I will probably pull it soon and toss it in the compost.
This is my experimental flower bed. I planted Love Lies Bleeding, Sunflowers, Sweet William and a bunch of other flowers. Just tossed in the seeds. Exciting to see what will pop up!
Last but not least, this was my edible/flower garden. Tomato's, Chard, Fennyl, Nasturtiums, Oriental Poppy's, and Zinnias should be popping out soon.
Well there it is, most of my garden. I will post pictures of my edible front yard soon!
