Things are really starting to take off here around the garden. That is partly the reason I have been severely slacking on the blog. I wanted to give you a quick tour before I head back outside to plant some more Wooley Thyme. More on this project once it is finished.
My tomatoes and peppers are almost finished hardening off and they will go in the end of this week. Last week we had extreme winds, so hardening off was an amazing experience…can you hear the sarcasm in my voice! Everything made in through except a couple of zucchini plants. No big deal.
My cabbage is my pride and joy right now.
My lettuce, radishes, and cucumbers are looking good.
My beets have really taken off and my herbs are thriving on my patio.
Not much longer until I have a few strawberries for breakfast.
Here is a shot of my onion bed…sorry for the lighting.
This weekend I put in some Aspen trees, native grasses and lavender along my fence line. Once established, all of these plants thrive in Colorado’s dry climate and will add a little interest to this dull part of the yard.
There you have it…green is popping through all over the place, my last frost date is two days away, and my days have moved away from the stove and computer and are spent getting my hands dirty. Happy Summer!
