End of July 2013

Sunny day - finally!

South garden

Beurre de Rocquencourt yellow wax beans are starting to grow and ripen.  Ate my first one today.  Yummy!  Also a red cabbage and a few underdeveloped cucumber plants in this picture...


Several lavatera (rose mallow) flowers have opened.  :)

Flower bed

Chocolate mint with some rainbow Swiss Chard in the back.

Bed of determinate tomatoes, which take up much more room than I had expected.  Also in there, but not very visible, are Genovese basil, Opal basil, marigolds, and nasturtiums.

Another packed bed.  A melon plant on the left (swamped by nasturiums), summer savory, two eggplants, and two peppers.

Carrots, leeks (hidden, at this point), nasturtiums, and squash - either Buttercup or Butternut, I can't remember!

Tene's beans draping over the side of the container, beets, and parsnips in the back (not visible).

Raised bed of greens.  They had a slow start but are thriving now.

I don't think I have posted pictures of this bed yet this summer.  I think of it as the "miscellaneous bed".   Marigolds, an eggplant, two or three peppers, a sunflower, two dahlias, and some pac choi that was ravaged by hungry insects.

The strawberry patch, with two big nasturtiums.

Indeterminate tomatoes at the side of the house, along with a few peppers, Morning Glories, marigolds, and an eggplant.

Continuing along the side of the house, more indeterminate tomatoes and an eggplant.

Black Krim tomatoes.  I can't wait for these to ripen!

Opalka paste tomatoes.  I think of these as "Gnome Tomatoes".  They're very pointy.

Corn, melons in the black container, and the apple tree.


More pumpkins

Vittoria eggplant (a hybrid)

Ping Tung eggplant (heirloom)
