Garden Tour—June 12, 2016

Time for another tour of the edibles in the garden. Everything is really growing well and we should be eating jalapenos and broccoli any day.

Remember those itty bitty basil plants that I transplanted here? Time for caprese and pesto!

We’ve eaten a couple of meals off of here, but it continues to grow more. (Spring Blend)

Time for spinach. Think I’ll make garlic-kissed sautéd spinach like MK. Love that!

Another spring lettuce going strong.

I can’t believe how fast argula grows!

The pepper farm is getting big!

Can’t wait to try Swiss chard. We’ve never had it before. Anyone have a good recipes for it?

The bush cucumbers are starting to flower.

Jalapeno progress.

The poblano is growing too.

The first cajun bell pepper. This is another new variety for us. It’s supposed to be a spicy bell pepper.

I’m always amazed to see the growth of tomatoes at this time of year. They are literally taller every single day.

Can’t you almost taste it? This variety is called Fourth of July and I think it’s going to live up to its name.

A look from one end of the raised beds to the other.

I think this spot is too wet for the dill.

The pumpkins are starting to bloom. Not going to lie, I’m a little surprised that they’re doing so well.

This mixed bed is becoming one of my favorite. I love the succulents mixed in around the cilantro, chives, tomatillos and lemon thyme.

Hurry up tomatillos! I’m ready to make salsa.

I saw a package of four o’clocks at the store and remembered my grandma raising them. I decided I had to have them to hopefully pass this memory on to my kids.

I can’t remember the name of this succulent ground cover but the dainty yellow flowers are pretty. 
IMG_8609
The cilantro is going to see and since I hate the taste of it, I prefer this view. 😉 
IMG_8607
The weather is perfect for growing tomatoes! 
IMG_8606
The tomatoes in the raised bed are going strong too. The basil around the edges looks small, but we’ve been eating off it regularly. 
IMG_8605
More tomatoes. The peas are really irregular. 
IMG_8604
Pea blossoms! Hurry up already. 
IMG_8603
The cabbage is forming heads. Looks like I need to treat for cabbage moths. 
IMG_8602
The strawberries are so sweet this year. 
IMG_8600
The first planting of green beans are blossoming. It looks like I need to thin the carrots a little more.

Every time I see this bed, I’m disappointed about the garlic.
