This morning I was looking at some of the pictures we took of our new kitchen garden just a couple of months ago. I can't believe how much our garden has grown! Come on in the gate and take a look...
and it smells delicious!
We've already enjoyed the cilantro in our home made salsa.
The lavender will fill out when the cilantro is ready to be removed.
Let's take a look at what is growing in the beds...
The sweetpeas are now above the trellis and are starting to flower...
We've been enjoying our lettuce every day. I am amazed how long it has lasted! The key is to just take a few leaves off each one rather than cutting the whole head off.
We've already eaten several delicious tomatoes from this vine. I found six new green babies this morning that will soon be red and ripe.
and we found our first cucumber today. I know he doesn't look like much now, but wait until your next visit!
Before we leave the garden, I want to introduce our latest little addition. We planted a couple of pumpkin vines in the beds that surround our kitchen garden. Our plan is to have pumpkins growing around the beds in time for Halloween.
I hope you enjoyed your time in my garden. If you are planting a kitchen garden, I'd love to hear what you've planted lately. Are there any vegetables or herbs that you've particularly enjoyed?
