I baked the bread I planned. Then I mowed the part of the lawn around the garden with plans to finish the mowing after I planted. Well, between weeding, feeding, prepping the beds and finally planting, I ran out of steam and time. So today I have to finish mowing and continue with the gardens. I also want to bake cookies or brownies. Then tonight I'll start laundry and change linens and if that migrates into the work week so be it.
I planted 15 pepper plants (5 varieties), 8 tomato plants (8 varieties), 5 zucchini plants (2 varieties) and 2 cucumber plants.
|Pepper plants, zukes way up top, radishes on the left.|
|Tomatoes and that far right corner will have cucumber seeds planted.|
|Many different herbs, chard, sorrel, kale, lettuce, and purple sugar snap peas.|
|Shiso in the front, basil, mexican tarragon, lavender hyssop & chamomile.|
|New squash/gourd garden. Bee balm and lemon balm in the foreground, 2 blueberry bushes in the back.|
|Flowers & herbs will be on the left of the quince.|
|Pumpkin will go in between the a/c and quince.|
|Mint, chocolate mint, chives and edible flowers.|
I also need to edge and clean up my little mint and chive patch.
Since COVID-19 hit I decided that instead of annual flowers, I'd plant more veggies in my pots.
|Lettuce mix and spinach.|
Well I hope you enjoyed the tour. I would honestly become a homesteader if I had help outside from the LoML. The gardens I have are a lot of work. I'd love to get chickens and maybe a goat or 2 but my city won't allow it so veggie gardens are it.
Happy Sunday! I hope yours is more restful than mine.
