I thought I would share my little garden today, everything has just started to grow really well. It is all green green green with a extra touch of green.
The sunflowers are growing fast, followed by the tomatoes and rocket. The kale and chili plants are coming along nicely, chilies always seem to grow so slowly, I am happy I have any leaves at all!
My lavender bed didn’t all survive the freezing St Louis winter, but I have a couple of tough plants and I have put some more in the bed to fill it up again. Hopefully I will get a bumper harvest again this year and make some lavender bags and maybe some lavender infused oil to use in balms and perfumes. Then it’s fingers crossed for the winter months.
The rhubarb is looking good, but I think I need to leave it this year and wait to harvest next year. Seems a little too long to wait for rhubarb crumble, maybe I will buy some this year and let my little plants get big and strong!
Do you have a garden or pots or both like me? What do you like to grow? I need to plant some more herbs, I only have basil, mint and coriander, and I think I am in need of parsley.
I can’t wait to see how my garden grows through the summer and I will be sure to enjoy all the leaves and fruits as they grow.
I think I have enough to share with the local wildlife, as long as the squirrels, bunnies and woodchucks are not too greedy, we shall all get along just fine!
I hope your garden is doing well whatever you are growing!
