I thought I would share with you all how well our little garden is doing so far. This past weekend it was over 100 degrees -- yuck! Thankfully, we'd been really generous with the watering and all our veggies seem to have taken off. The heat didn't seem to phase them and there is already evidence of deliciousness to come!
The red lettuce and Chinese cabbage are already going strong:
The cucumbers have a lot of flowers on them and the beans are happily climbing their trellises. Many of them already have pods!
The tomato plant is looking a little sad, but hopefully these yellow blooms will bear some juicy fruit:
And last we have the salsa garden. Green onions in the front, I've never grown them so I don't know if they look healthy or not?
I'm hoping for a bumper crop of all these hot peppers!
The roses in the front yard seem to be in their final bloom for now. They've still got a few gorgeous blooms left on them:
This little tea rose wasn't trellised and it got so heavy with blooms it just flopped over on its side!
And finally these little guys, some annuals that I had planted in my hanging baskets last fall. At least I thought they were annuals. Jason swore they were going to come back to life after the winter and I really didn't believe him. Now I have to admit, he was correct:
So that's what been growing around our little homestead! I still have a bunch of wine barrels to fill on the side of the front yard. I'm looking for something tall, colorful, likes partial sun, and will survive a brutal Sacramento summer. Any ideas???????
I'm linking up to Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer. You should head over there too and see what else everyone has been to up to outdoors. I'm counting on lots of spring flowers and early gardens!
