Garden Update

In the previous garden update, I featured pictures from the end of May and the beginning of June. Here is my garden as of July 1.

First, the front and the snow peas!


My first pepper, called a Great Stuff .....

My bicolor sage plant ....

My front woodland flower bed, comprised of wild lupines, columbines, and violas....


Now the back... as you can see things have gone berzerk. Here is my lettuce patch made up of deer tongue (left side) and Yugoslavian fire lettuce ......

My mix of mystery summer squash ....


Remember my little radishes? Not so little now! I ate the first one the other day. It was spicy.


I already have small maters and a million blossoms....

I'm so jealous! I don't have any tomatoes yet! And I effectively killed my Living Salad Bowl. Ugh!

Your garden looks gorgeous!

Peas? in July?

Hmmph, says the guy who's peas bolt in early March.

Garden looks terrific Heather!

My tomatoes are pretty much done. I'll plant Fall tomatoes in a week or two.

LOL darn Texans with the extra long growing season!!!

We got home at 8 last night, and pulled in the driveway and Boxer goes, "Damn. That's a lot of peas right there." We are going to have snow pea and radish stir fry this week :)

Guys-
Your garden looks good. I also have a lot of maples growing. The leeks are sparse, but the okra and everything else is doing good. Your potatoes are up and doing good and so is the squash.
