It looks like I have a garden neighbor. I would never have thought that he’s a gardener, he smokes and watches TV all day. He lives on the other side and plants his garden in one of the neighbors’ yard. I thought it was kind of odd, here he has to pass my house to get to his garden.
I photographed my garden on Saturday and finally have a chance to post it today. Below is a picture of my Maximilian sunflowers, and they are now taller than me. I can’t wait to see the flowers, this photo was taken from my deck.
I’m glad my sister gave me the seeds and they are easy to care for.
My sister Bee came to give us her fish on Sunday and said that my garden looks more organized seeing it on my blog than seeing it in person. I guess some of my flowers are overgrown and have a life of their own. Believe it or not this flower was planted in a small pot.
I don’t eat enough of the Pennyworth, and it’s taking over half of this planting bed.
This is my first year planting American beans and I’ve been harvesting a handful everyday of this week.
Apparently they don’t climb the teepee trellis.
This is my second crop of radishes this year and I have to harvest them soon because they are crowding the chili pepper plants.
The Spinach vines look promising. I’m glad the rabbit didn’t come back after I startled him last time. I was out in my garden one morning and he jumped out in front of me. He stood there for a few second and took off. That was the last time I saw him.
I love Thai basil, and it’s so obvious from the look of it. It doesn’t grow fast enough for me.
This will be my last year planting cucumbers from seeds. I was so disappointed that they didn’t climb and have been producing very few fruits. I spoke to another Laotian gardener on Saturday, and she has the same problem with her cucumbers this year. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the early planting season or just bad seeds.
Cherry tomato plants
I was late in getting the Thai eggplants in the ground this year, but it’s better late than never.
This is one of the fish that my second sister gave us when she closed her pond in early Spring. I’m not sure how many we have in there now and we have many little ones also.
This is my daily harvest and I do love fresh vegetables.
All photos were taken with Canon T2i and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens.
