I haven't done a garden update in a while....At this time everything is looking good!
Thank goodness the wild pigs haven't found us this year...(I know... I probably just jinxed it!)
Overview of garden - the total space of the garden is probably no more than 10 feet wide and about 30 to 35 feet long. This is not counting the areas where we have some bananas, papayas and the Surinam cherry tree planted.
I like to mix colorful flowers with the herbs and veggies, some are edible and some are not. We have two types geraniums (red and salmon), zinnias, mini-daylilies, two kinds of nasturtiums, snapdragons (pink and yellow) and orange and yellow marigolds. The lavender blooms above with darn background are rom the garlic chives.
At this time we have plenty of dill, which is blooming profusely. I cut some dill and saved in freezer baggies in the freezer to use as needed.
The strawberry bed produced a couple of dozen strawberries this first year and the bed is overflowing. We need to either move them to a larger area or divide and share!
Our Roma tomatoes are producing steadily and we have harvested at least 15 or 20 already.
Besides all of the above, we continue to harvest also Okinawan and Dawn Dewa (Moluccan) spinaches; we have plenty of sweet basil and a new planting of Thai basil. The purple basil is there but not doing, much. We need to move it.
We just planted a new rosemary besides the 4 older plants, which are beginning to show a new lease on life as well as the little bay/laurel plant which the pigs had destroyed...it is now showing new leaves!
The parsley is lush, the thyme and sage are thriving and we moved some of the Cuban oregano to a new place. We have two different mints planted...Peppermint and Spearmint.
We haven't had enough rain this year, but so far I haven't had to water twice a day, as I had to in previous years...but the little evening and night rains we've had have been just enough to keep everything lush and green.
....and this is how my garden grows today!
