The Garden Grows!

Last week I posted my little flower box garden, which is growing really nicely thanks to the beautiful weather we have had here.  Val was also busy in her own backyard planting  a veggie and herb garden of her own.

She had some great luck with a garden a  couple of years ago, so she decided to give it another go, this time with some seedlings.  After getting some seedlings, she went to work planting in her garden bed.  Luckily, some of her herbs pop up in her garden every year, like her lemon balm and mint, so these plants are beautifully growing already.

In the raised beds, Val has lots of room for some more veggies to grow.

Here she has some tomato, sweet peppers, Dinosaur and Russian kale.

I have to admit to having some comfort in knowing that if my flower box garden fails, I may be able to get a bit of Val’s harvest!

So far this year has been great for veggies, herbs and fruit.  Beautiful sun and just enough rain.  We will keep you posted on the garden progress…and hopefully post a great harvest too!
