It’s been a long while since I’ve updated you status of the garden. Back here, when I shared my seedlings, was the last time I posted about the garden, so I thought today I would share the beauty that is my 2010 Garden with you.
What kind of planting are you up to this season? Share in the comments and also join the Indie Fixx Flickr Gardening Group and share some pics!
This spring has been pretty mild, as far as extreme cold temperatures, and even though it got down in the 30s last night, we haven’t had a frost since March or early April. Pretty unusual, but I’m glad, since I’ve had my garden in for about 5 weeks now. Most everything I’ve planted is cold resistant, but frost is another story… Everything is looking nice & healthy.
This is my 1st year planting Bee’s Friend, but everything I’ve read about it claims that it will be covered in bees. A pretty good thing for the bee’s and my garden, I’d say. I just love bees and wish I could pet their furry little bodies…is that weird?
The peas are looking awesome! I actually planted them on March 17th and expect peas in the next few weeks. Yummy, yum, yum.
I’ve already harvested some spinach & kale this year. I mixed them together, braised them and served with balsamic vinegar.
Can’t wait until this stuff is ready to eat. The variety I bought is heat resistant, so I’m hoping to have lettuce throughout the summer.
I love beets….I’ve found that you either love them or hate them…and hope these suckers get bigger than the ones I planted last year.
I planted this broccoli last year and it was seriously one of the best things I’ve ever tasted in my life! It almost tasted like a different food from the broccoli you buy in the grocery store. Whenever anyone with a garden tells you that food tastes so much better when you pick it and eat it right away, they aren’t lying. It really does.
Finally, here are some of my herbs that I have in pots on the deck. I have basil, cilantro, oregano, parsley, dill, rosemary and thyme. Even if you don’t have a yard, you can grow herbs in containers. It saves so much money and you can have fresh herbs every night!
