Well, we're on a roll! We planted early, yes we know, but thus far, we're pretty happy with the results.
Our snap peas and pole garden beans are doing really well. Our tomatoes were all destroyed or didn't take, so we bought new plants last week. Our chili peppers are coming in nicely, along with green onions.
Our herb garden is doing exceptionally well. We have basil, rosemary, lemon thyme, cilantro and parsley. We have more cilantro than we know what to do with. We're trying to figure out what to do with what we cut today.
Also, we have an eggplant, squash and a pumpkin that are doing great. We're going to be planting carrots, cucumbers, zucchini and corn this week too.
It's really starting to look like a real garden! The last "big" thing we want to do is put down some gravel and a fence with a gate to keep the garden area separate from the yard so that boys and toys don't end up back there.
On a side planting note, we pulled out the two ugly bushes in the front of our home. We planted zennia, salvia, gerbera daisies and marigolds. It looks so much better and more well-kept. It's been a lot of work this weekend, but it's been worth it.
