This morning is bright and beautiful. The heat has not come in yet, but you can tell that it is definitely on its way.
This little tomato is a new addition this year to my garden. It is the "Reisetomate" from Bakers Creek Seeds, and from here it only gets to looking crazier.
The Tarragon seeds I planted 3 weeks ago are ready for transplanting.
The radish bed was over planted, as I heard that in my soil they are hard to grow. However, they are all growing like crazy. I planted, "French Breakfast" , "Burpee White", and "Plum purple". I have not seen any whites coming through yet.
My Chard is "Ruby", and it is doing well, despite the little nibbles from something. If only I would stop putting the sprouts on my salad! Note for next year....buy more seeds!
As for basil, I have some planted in the garden, as well as in containers...... everywhere. You can just never have enough basil!
This mixture is, "Rocky Top" from Bakers Creek, and also Radiccho (Palla Rossa) from "The Cooks Garden", just mixed together in a bed. I never worry about them growing to full size and getting too crowded because I use this bed just for baby greens. They usually are all used up before they grow past 5 inches in height.
These are my Asparagus( or long beans). These are seeds from my bushes up north. These are the most amazing beans ever. My mother had one in her garden the other day that was a good 24 inches long.
Plus the flowers are sooooo gorgeous! I do not know if my camera, or picture skills, do it justice: but that little bit of yellow right inside the flower is so pretty.
My Hyacinth bean out front was planted about 2 weeks ago and it's starting to take off.
An my Oregano is looking good. Mom divided her plant for me. Seeing as how I showed up mid-season and am starting out so late.
It will be nice when I actually have pictures of fruit and vegetables for everyone to see.
