It's HOT! But I'm not complaining (too much). We are able to plant lots of fruits, veggies, herbs and wildflowers almost year round. However, this year I've been a bit behind schedule in my garden. We were going to move but things just didn't work out. We almost decided not to have a garden at all...And then I snapped out of it! Me? No garden? Ya right!
EVERYTHING in my garden is grown from Heirloom Seeds. EVERYTHING in my garden is Organic and NON-GMO!So here goes...Take a stroll through (some of) my garden...
I planted Thessaloniki Tomatoes this year because it is FAST! It can reach maturity in as few as 60 days.
|See the tiny tomato?|
Also planted throughout the garden is Genovese Basil and Dark Purple Opal Basil (pictured). These beautiful and delicious companion plants are muti-taskers in the garden.
I still have LOTS of seedlings on the patio!
|Peppers and more Borage awaiting transplant!|
|Genovese Basil, Little Gem Lettuce and Dill|
Now that my Thessaloniki Tomatoes have flowers, I will use Diatomaceaous Earth around the base of the plant instead of all over so we don't harm beneficial pollinators and still keep the "bad bugs" out.
We have harvested Blue Lake Bush beans several times already. Delicious!
Beans have such pretty flowers! Over the weekend I planted a few Royalty Purple bush beans from seed. They should germinate in as few as 3 days. Stay tuned!

|Seedlings: Chinese 5-Color peppers, Genovese Basil and Dill|
