It’s a gorgeous summer evening, and I thought you might like to take a walk with me in my vegetable garden. In less than 8 weeks our garden has gone from tiny seedlings to a jungle of green, producing overtime! Our raised bed gardens have reached their limits after adding on year after year. And this year we (and when I say “we” I mean Bobby) are putting pavers where mulch walkways once were. Come with me this beautiful summer evening and let’s walk…
This picture was taken about 6 weeks ago.
And this evening…
Bobby is busy this weekend finishing the paver walkways. These pavers used to be our patio. When we put in a new patio last year, we saved the pavers for the garden walkways. Bobby has been working on the paths all summer. I think he will be finished tomorrow. Just in time for the magazine photo shoot later this month,
This has been a huge project and Bobby has done it all by himself. His day job is very cerebral so he loves spending his time working with his hands (or golfing) on the weekend. What an industrious guy!
Here’s whats blooming and producing in the garden now…
Eggplant… they have the prettiest flowers!
Tomatoes. In a couple of weeks they will be ready to pick, eat and can! We planted yellow pear, red caprese, early girl, better boy, jet star, beefsteak and 4 paste tomatoes that are great for making sauce.
We also have carrots, Swiss chard, spinach, green beans (lots and lots of green beans), leeks, onions, rhubarb, zucchini, cucumbers, cauliflower, lettuces and flowers.
I love to plant vegetable and annual flowers together!
Zinnias are my favorite summer flower! I think they are the happiest blooms!
Marigolds, globe amaranth, salvia, dianthus, petunias, snapdragons and more make their home in the veggie garden. The amount of rain has been as close to perfect as it can be this planting season. My flowers are as happy as my veggies!
Look at these gorgeous,big zucchini blossom. They are big and bright and turn into yummy zucchini! Zucchini are my hardest working producers!
Come back soon and let’s see how my garden quickly changes!!!
