I was out in my garden yesterday and realized I need to do a post on our vegetable garden. We’ve been planting vegetables for years; even when we were living in the “city” of Paterson, NJ. The last time we planted a garden was 3 years ago. The Colonel’s schedule just wouldn’t allow and I need my husband’s strength to help with the garden to grow vegetables every summer.
Now doesn’t that look pretty.
Here’s how it looked before my Colonel started working.
Here’s my Colonel working hard.
We planted tomatoes.
Green beans and sugar snap peas.
Lettuce. There’s a few more rows of lettuce.
Zucchini and Cucumber. Not sure if this is zucchini or cucumber.
We planted mint in our garden years ago and when we uncovered the garden, (The Colonel covered the garden with tarps before he left for Afghanistan) the MINT was still growing.
As most of you know, mint spreads like CRAZY! The Colonel dug it all up and planted it in a bucket
and dug a hole and planted the bucket. That way the mint is contained.
We also planted pumpkins, but no photo.
My herbs, in pots on the back porch.
And now some flowers.
I love these lilies because they just keep blooming all summer.
Some flowers planted on the back porch.
And my knock out roses.
And a view I can look at all day long.
Do YOU have a vegetable garden?
