I hadn't had enough time to spend in my garden over the past few weeks, so I decided to use my free morning today working in the garden and getting errands done. I didn't get pictures of it, but I had mushrooms growing in my garden. I ripped them out right away. I can't believe I've been so neglectful! She doesn't look too bad though:
The garden (plus a hose) is doing well.
Our mess of a tomato patch
Just one of about 7 gorgeous green bell peppers
Our lovely parsnips - I'm so excited to try these!
Our carrots have gone crazy
The lima beans are slowly coming back from an infestation of some form
The marigolds are absolutely thriving and flourishing
More yummy tomatoes - beefsteak
Even more tomatoes - Romas
This one we're not going to talk about. We're just going to giggle and squeal and hope the bugs don't get to it.
The nasturtiums survived their move and are beginning to flower again
Coneflowers, aka Echinacea, are sprouting up everywhere
Our lone surviving sunflower is growing smack-dab in the middle of our lawn
Now that I've been able to fill the feeder more often, the birds are back
A butterfly enjoying our flowers
Our gorgeous hibiscus bushes - I love them so!
Our newest addition - we've looked for pineapple mint for MONTHS since our old plants didn't survive our move. This big boy was on sale for $2!
Our second tomato harvest!
