My Garden June 3, 2010

My garden is coming along nicely.  I think Bo has been bragging about it, we had several visitors today.  One was the lady down the block and another was a Chinese family from a nearby Chinese restaurant.

As I’ve mentioned before that I planted many gifts in this garden, the beets are a seed pack gift from CA. I can’t wait to taste them.

These lettuces are also a seed pack gift from CA.

I planted several Thai eggplants, my dad gave me the small plants but mine are not doing too well.  I have lots of little black bugs munching on the leaves this year.

My dad also gave me the chili pepper plants. I planted a different variety towards the back of the planting bed this year.

My string beans are not doing as well as I had hoped, the containers help some but I might have to make a raised bed for it next year.

I planted 2 types of cucumber.

Pickle cucumber,

and small white cucumber.

Tomatoes

A flower plant gift from PaNoy.

We have been getting a few thunder storms in the last few weeks, so some of the plants look kind of muddy.

Bo’s Ginkgo Biloba tree is taking a growth spurt this year.

  1. Your garden is really evolving and looking better all the time. Soon enough the Chinese restaurant will want you to supply them with fresh veggies. 🙂

    And your choice of vegetables reminds me of mom’s kitchen garden. Except her plants are still babies now. It won’t be for a while until we can harvest anything.

    I also like Lee’s gardening style – especially with the rose bushes. Great job Lee! 😉

    • Cambree, funny that you mentioned about the Chinese restaurant because Bo already sold 4 fish to them. Perhaps the vegetable is next. 🙂

      I love kitchen garden, everything is so fresh. I harvested several cucumbers today and they’re delicious.

  2. I love your garden too! I can’t wait to get my own house soon so that I could start my garden up again! By the way, what is the plant with the white flowers? It looks absolutly gorgeous.

    • Hi Kamee, thanks. The white flower is the Gardenia, it has a nice fragrance and can withstand cold weather. My garden is a relaxing place for me and hope you can start yours soon. 🙂
