It was sprinkling after work, and a bit too wet to work in the garden, so I walked around and got my work shoes muddy taking pictures of the vegetable garden. I think the rain has stopped, so maybe I can go out for a yard walk and do a little deadheading.
Here is the view from the street:
The entry to the garden is between the 2 lattice fences, next to the bed frame. Some black-eyed Susans and lemon balm have become the volunteer greeters. I had other flowers in the red tub, but somehow some mint got started, and I gave up pulling it out. A wild, yellow blooming snapdragon is in the tub to the right of the entry, where I'm not letting it be invasive in the ground. The area next to the bird bath has larkspur and 4 o' clocks coming up.
A few years ago, Larry made the wooden structure and put sand in it, and maybe some oil or something, to clean garden tools in. He told me you're supposed to use it each time you use your tool. I don't use it that often, but it was nice of him to think of my tools.
The area to the right of the entry has lettuces, spinach, bachelor buttons, etc. The February planted area is in the upper area of the photo.
The next photo was taken turning to the left of the entrance, facing west. I planted some green beans in the bare area a few days ago.
Still facing west, the north part of the garden:
The south half:
The last time I posted on the garden, I couldn't remember what I planted here in the northwest area, and it turned out to be romaine lettuce joining all the other lettuces, spinach, and kale in this area.
A larkspur is getting ready to bloom in the lettuce patch, and in the background are hollyhocks, garlic, sweet peas, a lily, rhubarb, and the compost area.
This sunflower is between the larkspur and garlic. A rabbit has chewed the right leaf.
Since it's been in the 80s, (but the 60s today) the buttercrunch lettuce will probably not get much bigger. I've been picking them this size, and it has been a treat.
These edible pod peas are growing on the fence, and will provide us with a few meals.
The peas on the fence, growing near...
Kohlrabi, which I've never grown before:
and purslane, verbena, and a hollyhock:
