I Love Growing Things

From a tiny seed to baskets full of food or wildflower seeds raked into an empty spot in the yard to the start of something bigger I love it all!

Growing Birdhouse Gourds for the first time, they need their own bed.

The gourds I added first they were probably last years seeds I never got to as you can see from the vine that took over this end of the raised bed it is very healthy. In the same box I have Romaine lettuce, pickling cucumbers, Zucchini and Marigolds.

The Herbs went crazy in my spiral with all the rain then none but lots of sun and heat.

The poor Basil has a hard time getting light with my crazy dill and Lemon Balm. There is Thyme and Rosemary and Sage all of which you can’t see.

Not sure how some survived it must have been the food I gave them with water during the drought.

For the next few days the heat will be brutal which will surly get those Tomatoes to ripen.

Tomatoes and Green Beans will be a part of every meal lol
They love what I provide for them of the natural variety.

So after all the work is done daily maintaining the yard, feeding when no rains fall I grab my latest library book and some Gatorade and sit in a shady place and watch the wildlife come for fresh water grass seed freshly mowed some clover too as well as some bugs they can now easily see.

Chemical free is the only way to go.

Now to wait on 80 degree temps to tackle a terracing project where groundhogs once were. It is never ending when you love your land and must repair trouble spots.

Hang in there for those dealing with the virus still 2020 will not be a year to be forgotten.

    1. I have lots of Cherry tomatoes ready so I pop them into all I cook but not sure I grew any beefsteak types after last years hornworms πŸ™‚ This yr I found 2 so far on a potted tomato plant I fed to the birds πŸ™‚

  1. Your garden looks really good. I think when you pick things up from the garden to cook, the tastes will be much better than from the store (perhaps this is just in my head).

    1. Actually it is true because nothing tastes as sweet as the fruit of our labor and I can eat raw knowing it is all healthy and never any poison used here wish you were closer so I could share.

      1. Thank you Eunice! I think you just mentioned a very good point about “any poison”. i think you mean those pesticides or things that you know you will not use in your garden.

Love to hear from you
