Oh! To have a garden - one of life's true attainable luxuries!
Things are starting to happen and I thought I'd share...
These foxgloves seemed to appear out of nowhere - they're so creamy in their whiteness.
..much like our mushrooms which appear regularly in the night... fairies...
I've never successfully grown cucumbers before. Their taste fresh-picked from the garden is like nothing I've imagined! They have so many more levels of flavour and who'd of thought cucumbers have prickles all over them!
Beautiful yellow flowers just as the white daisies have had enough - wonderful
Parsley is peeking up under the corn
It was so windy the other day that the corn was begging for mercy. How wonderful that plants have the amazing ability to BEND!
Our first BIG tomato!
And the lettuce basket continues to be easily filled daily. I've grown some more directly from seed. That worked well until I transplanted them to "thin" the seedlings out. Bad idea - almost all that I transplanted wilted up from the hot sun over the next couple days. Next time I think I'll just leave them there and see what happens.
Pretty flowers peeking up fighting for space between the grass that seems to grow centimetres over night.
And strawberries!!!! Hopefully we get to some of them before the birds..
We've done some companion planting which seems to be working well. The basil is thriving with the tomatoes. My favourite idea is planting corn near the cucumbers to allow the cucumbers to grow up the corn! What a good idea!
How is your garden going? Have you got any tips for me? I'd love to hear them!
