garden so far

The wonderful weather has had me outside as much as my schedule has allowed over the last two days.  It ended up being part of Saturday and part of today.  It’s so great to have my own yard to work on my own projects in.  I really like working on things out there and I think it adds value to my home, especially since it was such a disaster a year ago.  (Hmmm . . . I think I still owe you the “One Year Later” yard post.)  I thought I’d look back at the photos I took right after planting my garden earlier this spring.  It’s been so rainy here that it seems like nothing has really thrived, but I wanted to compare photos to see what has happened in a more objective way.  Here goes. . .

This is the main garden.  I also have a variety of other favorites through out the rest of the yard. Strawberries, beets, fennel, mustard greens, zucchini, lemon cucumbers, more basil, dill, sage, cilantro, chives, thyme, hmmmm. . . what else?  that seems like a lot.  Yum.  I can’t wait!  So far, I’ve been enjoying salad greens fresh from the garden as well as a few onions that I’ve snuck out early, the herbs have been good, I’ve eaten two or three raspberries, the rest are getting close, there are a few very close to being ripe strawberries (there was a ripe one, but a slug beat me to it.  I was moving very slowly that day ; )   hehe)  I’m shooting for a bumper crop, so please stay tuned for a harvest party or two.
