A Happy Garden

Warning: lots of pictures in the post! 

My garden is beautiful. Thanks to my awesome friends at my “Help Jenny With Her Garden” party, my garden is simply flourishing out in the front yard. I had a beautiful, bountiful harvest all during fall and winter, and I’m sad I didn’t document it very well. Here are the few shots I did happen to get on my iPhone:

Beautiful tomatoes all winter long
Baby carrots
Peas in a pod
Zucchini in December
Luffa gourds to luffa sponges

Now it’s spring and I’m waiting to harvest the last round of winter planting:

Oregon Sugar Pod Peas
Little broccoli offshoots
Red Creole Onions
Chard
More carrots :)
Cherry Tomatoes

New spring arrivals:

Tomato, eggplant and pepper seedlings
Rattlesnake bean blossoms
Sweet peas
Green-striped Cushaw squash seeds

New friends (due to an aphid problem):

How many ladybugs can you spot? (pun intended)

And lastly, flowers from the back porch that were just too beautiful to ignore:

Nasturtiums
Midnight-Velvet petunias
Sunflowers amidst weeds in my old garden area

I love my garden.

  1. Wow, that is simply awesome Jenny. Lots of fun too with your friends helping you. Your vegetables look great. the flowers in the backyard are beautiful! simply awesome!!! XOXOXO !!!

  2. Awesome! I am so jealous of your zucchini! I have to do a winter garden this year…will zucchini grow now?

  3. The zucchini were from my late summer round of planting. You can plant zucchini in March and again in late July/August for a fall crop. The ones in the pic were my last batch before the frost got the plant :)
