This is what has been keeping me busy lately

In this bed amongst the flowers there are:

3 climbing lebanese cucumbers (in container)
1 striped zucchini (to the left of the container)
2 gooseberry bushes (although they are rapidly multiplying. They are to the right of the cucs)
raspberries (along the back of the fence)

Over here we have 2 types of beans (french bush beans, and scarlet runners). And more raspberries. Mmmmm, raspberries.

Herb garden. If you look really closely you might see some fennel, some parsley and some chives. If you look closely you'll see oregano. And if you just look, you'll see some mint, some more mint, and oh yeah, some mint.

And this is the new bed. This was filled with flowers last year which I had to squeeze into other parts of the garden because I couldn't bear to just dig them up. This bed contains:
  • 3 types of tomatoes (2 x yellow cherry, 2 x roma, and one brandywine )

  • basil

  • 3 red pepper plants (red knight)

  • peas

  • sugar snap peas

  • more beans - these were a gift - believe they are a different variety of scarlet runner

  • 4 eggplant plants

Oh garden, I love you.

Oh and in case anyone is wondering what happened about the dirt, we ended up ordering 3 cubic yards. And it was plenty. Thank goodness we didn't order the 30 or so yards that we were originally told we'd need.

The garden looks great! And I'm happy everything worked out for you with the dirt. Maybe we can get together for a zero mile diet garden potluck come harvest time!

Hey Amber! I love the idea of a zero mile diet garden potluck. Let's make a plan. :)
