Gardening seems to be a hot topic among my friends and family these days. Everyone is comparing notes on how their vegetables are doing. I've had a few things just sort of fade away, but I consider my garden to be productive so far.
Here is one of my mustard plants:
Here is a little basil variety called Pistou Basil. It grows in a cute little bush, and it has tons of small leaves that are very aromatic:
I'm growing cilantro from seeds:
I bought this calendula (marigold) start at the farmer's market back in March or April and it became huge - about a foot and a half high! I couldn't believe it!My tomatoes seem to be doing well, and already have little green tomatoes on them. It's pretty exciting for me because last year my garden went in late and I had to wait forever until I had tomatoes. I'm growing a bunch of different varieties this year.The tag on this one says "Opalka." It's going to produce a dark red tomato with the shape of a chili.I bought way too many cherry tomato varieties. I'll have really colorful tomato salads this year with red, purple, and orange cherry tomatoes. I think these are the Sun Gold tomatoes that will be orange:The weather is getting hotter here. I hope the gardens keep thriving! How is yours doing?
