Scented Sweet Peas July 14

A mix from my seed stash - one of my favourite flowers

Plot 5 July 9

Lots happening over at Plot 5 now ..... garlic chives coming into bloom and brocolli in need of harvest

kale, peas, carrots and potato onions in this pic, along with  some recently sprouted  bush beans peeking through the greenery

beets (an amazing crop this year) and potatoes taking over this corner, and below a beautiful burgundy lettuce going to seed ......

The Harvest Begins Early July

A few goodies from the garden ....... here is my potato onion - always provide an early harvest, a wee bit pungent, but I've been growing them for years from saved bulbs ...... and I couldn't wait to try the pepper - unfortunately not a lot of flavour at this point ..... but what a beauty!!

Here Come the Tomatoes June 27

The container tomatoes are looking so healthy .......

lots of blossoms and a few wee tomatoes showing on the two  Scary 5808 plants

Also check out the lovely colour on Craig's Carolina Amethyst pepper - very early for here on the coast!!

Back to the Garden June 20

My garden has grown too much ..... mixed scented sweet peas are starting to climb, lettuce is beautiful but already starting to turn bitter; I really must do more with garlic chives, so healthy and reliable every year.

The tomatoes in the 2 gallon containers are a mystery variety.  I found a wee clump of processed/dried seeds hiding under one of my succulent dish gardens - no idea what I had saved, but of course had to grow them out - turns out they are micro-dwarfs - stay turned for colour update

June 18 Update

Tomatoes are looking healthy and are covered in blossoms

check out the pepper already on the Carolina Amethyst!!  the fruit start out cream coloured and progress to Amethyst

Change of Pace

Just had to show off my Tillandsia!!
