the garden grows


a few weeks later

Seriously, I have never seen plants so happy and thriving.  When I see all of the rich green it makes me so happy.  I do love and adore the plants, and they do have good conditions.  Plenty of sun, ample water, and great soil/compost mixture.  Plus the soil was tilled and loosened before I planted this garden.  This is only half of the edible garden.  On the other side of the patio I have more tomato plants and tons of holy basil.  There the soil isn't as rich or loose, but the basil doesn't mind.  We also have a new tangerine tree in the front yard.

chard, kale, arugula, variety of lettuce, Japanese greens, onion, 3 types of peppers, 3 basil varieties, tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, broccoli, caulifower, marigold (edible, plus keeps away bugs), chives, onions, pole beans, bush beans.
