Garden Update

We are finally making some progress with out garden. We're a lot further behind than I had hoped to be by now, but at least there are plants growing out there now.

Here are some pictures from the garden.

Here is some of the corn with some rather straggly looking pea plants behind them.

Cantaloupe, watermelon and zucchini.

More peas. These look a little better.

Tomato and pepper plants. We planted eight of each.

Four rows of green beans. Amanda and I also planted two rows of pinto beans, one row of black bush beans and one row of black eyed peas, but they aren't up yet.

In these planters I have sunflowers, gourds, and cucumbers. They are just starting to sprout here and there.

In the black planters I have some more corn. If you look really hard you may be able to see just a few little shoots coming up.

In the round pots are marigolds, blue and pink morning glories, and basil.

And on the front porch the impatiens and ferns are still doing well.

We've had very little rain recently so I've been going out nearly every evening and watering the garden and other plants. But I'm enjoying the chance to have a garden again.

  1. Thanks for coming by my Outdoor Wed., always happy to hear from new bloggers. You look like you have a wonderful home and garden. Lots of room to grow so many things. Your ferns look really healthy.

  2. It all looks great. I am sure with all the things still sprouting, you will have plenty to do all summer.

  3. Your plants are looking like mine, haven't taken off yet but plenty of possibilities.

  4. Your ferns look fabulous! I planted pansies, but they're giving up in this infernal heat. But they were so pretty while they lasted! :)

  5. Everything looks like it's coming along! Great job. We started late this year too... but it will all turn out.

  6. The garden looks great! I have basil coming out the wa-zoo! I am trying to find recipes for it! :)

  7. Our farmers here are just starting to plant. I have to wonder if corn prices will go up. I loved seeing your pictures. There's something exciting about the tiny shoots that will someday be sturdy stalks.


  8. Oh my gosh, you actually can get things to GROW!
