our garden this year

Posted on

our garden this year is doing great! I guess the third time is a charm.

we actually have huge plants! quite a few peppers, eggplants and tons of tomatoes. I hope they all keep growing and make it to an edible stage.

in the front of the house we have tons of basil, parsley, sage, oregano, thai basil, rosemary and jalapenos! I have to harvest the jalapenos but have no idea what to do with them. thinking about freezing. also want to freeze the basil I guess I could just blend with olive oil and freeze.

so last week on Memorial Day we planted this years veggie and herb garden! proudly all of our compost this year for the garden was our very own!!!!! I still can’t believe that the compost actually turned out just the way it should. we decided to really scale back this year and not try to plant too much and just focus on the items we really wanted. our raspberry plant also survived the winter and is bigger!

what we have growing this year
in the SFG:
tomatoes
peppers (red, yellow, orange)
eggplant

in pots in the front of the house:
jalapaneo peppers
basil
parsley
sage (came back from last year!)
rosemary
oregano
thai basil
