I have to say, I am SO happy that our garden is thriving! Can you believe that we are victorious (knock on wood) over those little monsters?? We still have a few pests, but as you can see most everything is growing and even producing. Notice my composter to the right of the shot! I got it from Gaiam and I totally love it. It’s so easy to use, just spin it daily and keep a 50/50 mix of green and brown (or wet and dry). Meeaann.
The above is one of our squash plants. We have two of them and they are absolutely huge. I had to prune them today because they are growing into the green beans.
We finally have tomatoes! Our 4 tomato plants are massive and are producing quite a lot of tomatoes already. I’m already going through my cookbooks to get new recipes for all of them, as I know we will be bombarded really soon. Yay!
Kaleo had the great idea of using the old pavers and river rocks to make the pathways more decorative and aesthetically pleasing.
Today we planted corn, aloe vera, carrots, cucumbers, and Kaleo planted his very first one… A Pepper plant. Ha! How appropriate. 🙂
This was the first day that Kaleo got to experience the garden first-hand since he’s been home from tour. Like, actually digging in the dirt kind of first-hand. He loved it, and was such a great help. Tomorrow we will plant the lettuce and more herbs in the herb garden. Simply perfect.
