End of June 2013

Potato patch, tomatoes against the fence, Swiss Giant pansies in left corner.

South garden - beans, cabbage, cucumbers, green onions, cauliflower, broccoli.

Side of house - assorted tomatoes, marigolds, eggplant, and peppers.

Towards back of house - tomatoes, corn, melons, pumpkins, apple tree.

Pumpkins in foreground (middle one about to croak thanks to a furry creature uprooting it), corn in background.

Opalka paste tomato and marigolds.

Purple Vienna kohlrabi

The pink flowers on the Creeping Thyme are going to open soon!

Chocolate mint with Rainbow Swiss Chard along the back.

The patches of basil are finally starting to take off.  (Yep, Sleuth CallyMae, that is my shadow.)

Summer Savory

Indeterminate tomatoes (Cole & Yellow Cherry), opal basil, Genovese basil, marigolds, and a rogue nasturtium on the right.

Butternut (or Buttercup?) squash starting to take off.

One melon, nasturtiums, eggplants, peppers, marigold, and summer savory.

Tene's Beans (heirloom dry bush bean, apparently similar to marrowfat beans).

Detroit Red beets, second planting at the back.

Neighbour's house and our pea patch (Green Arrow bush peas).  Love the peas, but I detest weeding this.

Red Russian kale (note the loamy, rich soil it's in...*cough*)

Slow sunflower, two dahlias, marigolds, peppers, eggplants, and pac choi.

Healthy current bush.  Nothing like a good pruning!

Raised beds along the driveway.

Flower bed...calendula, scarlet flax, and gomphrena just now starting to grow well.  I hope they'll fill the back of the bed by August.

Red cabbage

Lush a week ago, this catnip has been thoroughly enjoyed (read: mangled) by Saj, Karl, and Butters (especially the latter two).

South garden - Beurre de Rocquencourt beans, sunflowers in containers.  Also a nasturtium, part of a cabbage, pink container of basil, and a variety of weeds.

Butters (neighbour's cat) at my feet.  She likes to "help" me weed.

Flakey container, flakey house (wabi-sabi, or just decrepit?) but the Button zinnias will be bright and cheerful when they bloom.

Yellow Hot Hungarian pepper - tomatoes and a container of marigolds behind it.

Another container with three pumpkins.
