Rainy Day Garden Tour
I didn’t want to overwhelm you with garden photos just about every week, but when I saw this morning how much bigger the plants were than yesterday, I decided that I couldn’t resist today. (Some of that greenery is weeds, but I’ve been trying to finish weeding the front flowerbeds first, and then – in another day or two I’ll work on the patio area and to weed the garden. Weeds have amazing growth energy!)
Here the daisies are starting to bloom in the front flowerbeds. Just wait; in another week or two they will be much more abundant!
This is how the garden looks this morning on the west side of the path. The plants have grown an inch or two overnight!
Here we are on the East side of the garden, where I started seeding. The Roma tomatoes are up, as is the spinach.
Back to the west side, where those bushy green plants are my healthy, thriving radish crop. (I’m eating a handful once or twice a day).
Here’s a close up of the radishes – this brand is called French Breakfast.
Ah, I’m getting high hopes for great canteloups from that middle row with the large round leaves!
There should be a good crop of pumpkins/squash from that row in front of the bins. We’ll just have to wait until the end of summer.
Oh yes, and the French marigolds are popping up everywhere! Particularly along both sides of the path, but they are popping up like weeds all over the garden too. They will be blooming before long in vibrant and loud colours, and they will not stop until the snow covers them! They also keep the mosquitos and flies away. (Also some creeping ones like slugs, etc.)
