Quite Contrary

Can you see the tomatoes? Hopefully we will have fresh tomatoes around Christmas. I was hoping to have fresh green beans, but I don't think that will happen.
Lots of fresh herbs, Basil, Thai Basil, Thyme, Mint, Chives, Dill, and Rosemary. It is nice to be able to use fresh herbs for cooking and they grow so well during the winter and spring here. I have tried to grow things during the summer but it is so hot, most of the time everything just burns. I just can't give it enough water and shade. Even my established trees struggled last summer, it was just brutal.
Peas... I can't wait for these to be ready to eat.
More tomatoes. I planted Roma and Grape tomatoes, I just don't remember which plant is which. No worries, I'll figure it out as they grow. I had planted a pepper plant but that mischievous Boston Terrier tried to eat it... I'm hoping it will come back, but it is behind schedule. I have been successful at keeping her out of everything else - so far. Only time will tell if I will continue to be successful - she is a sneaky one :o)


  1. Your vegetables look wonderful. Unfortunately, our growing season is gone. I miss having home grown tomatoes, cucumbers and green beans. There is just nothing like them.

  2. Thanks Viki! I love having fresh produce in the backyard :o)
