the garden grows


before

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.

Pictured:
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.

Beautiful! We just got our winter garden planted and it is making me very happy, except for one visiting cat who seems to believe our raised bed is his new litter box...any ideas for helping him to find another yard to visit? I'll be posting pics on my blog tomorrow.
