Fruits of Labor

It’s certainly a beautiful sight to see the garden start taking off and “knock on wood” looking healthy.

The herb garden is doing exceptionally well, the bugs certainly don’t bother them since they have a strong aroma.

Lime basils

I have to say that this is the first year my tomato plants look decent and healthy.

My first ripe tomato, can’t wait to taste it.

The cucumbers and sugar snap peas cover the metal A-Frame trellis.

I have lots of tiny frogs in my garden, they are small enough to sit on the plant leaves.

Sugar snap peas.

The okras got a lot bigger, they certainly love the Summer hot weather.

The chili peppers.

My bell pepper seedlings are taking off, this is one of the plants that loves hot Summer weather also.

The Asian pole beans start to climb the fence trellis.

The Chayote squash is coming along.

The Kaffir Lime tree.

Between all the 4 persimmon trees I hope to be able to harvest at least 10 fruits in the Fall.

  1. You still have the most impressive vegetable garden. (In Danish this is called a “køkkenhave” – “kitchen garden”. I will see if I can find the lemongrass you mention as a way to avoid mosquitos, an interesting advice, thank you. We have many this year, since the spring has been very rainy. God luck with all the plants. 🙂

    • Hi Giiid, it’s good to see you here and my garden is a lot bigger this year and so far it’s doing great. They sell the lemongrass stalks at the Asian market and you can soak them in water for several weeks then plant them in the ground. You do have to take it inside during the winter months, it won’t survive the below-freezing temperature. You might be able to find them online also.
