First of all, thank you, thank you for all of your wonderful suggestions yesterday about what to do with the Green Monster! I’m newly energized and I’m working hard on pulling that area together. I was feeling quite overwhelmed before I asked for your help. Hopefully I’ll be able to share a photo of our progress soon. It’s such a shady, private spot. I love to sit there for a minute first thing in the morning or when we take a break during the day. It’s going to be a little oasis in our oasis.
Here’s an update on how things are going out in the garden this week:
The sweet peas are almost ready!
Here’s a beautiful post about sweet peas that AmySue at A Healthy Life for Me wrote last week
Her recipes and photos are wonderful!
The basil and tomatoes are coming along (notice that the bunny food/poop grass is still trying to surface). I decided to try salt marsh hay as mulch this year to retain moisture and keep weeds and wilt away. We’ll see how it goes. I’d better get cages around those tomato plants soon.
I planted few red cabbage plants in this extra space and we’re enjoying the lettuce. Better get it while we can because lettuce is happiest in cool weather, once it gets hot it will bolt and be gone! The zucchini has settled in nicely and I planted a treat just beyond the lettuce… zinnias to cut and enjoy in August
Lemon balm, thyme and lavender…
And here’s our first purple coneflower blossom of the season! There will be many more to come..
It’s very rainy here but it’s supposed to clear up over the next few days. Perfect weather for growing everything!
Thanks for stopping!
Enjoy Everything today!
