After working hard today, the garden is in. I had to install two new trellises for pumpkins (and eventually, other things as well). I had a great helper, who insisted we take many breaks to play with bean bags. I figured – why not?
Sophia is definitely my daughter – stealing basil to eat..right from the plant! I placed her a bit too close to the plants…
And potatoes – a new plant for us!
I kinda went overboard this year. This row includes two types of pumpkins, cucumbers, eggplant, corn, and some chard that is still going strong.
This is the tomato. row. We have four types of tomatoes growing here. I re-spray painted the tomato cages, so they look pretty. Jon kinda though it was a waste of time to spray paint these, but he is very sweet and just lets me do whatever I want in the garden.
Here’s the whole veggie garden (not including the pots on the patio). I still have chard and kale growing and doing well, although soon it will be too warm for them. We have at least three pots of herbs, plus the herbs in the ground. I still need to buy more basil and plant it. I interspersed marigolds in tomatoes to help with pests.
We’ll see how it grow. I’m excited about the pumpkins!
And here is Sophia showing everyone how to fit a horse and elephant inside your mouth at the same time…
