Some Stuff N' Stuff

Mostly a garden blog, and the occasional garden-inspired recipe.


Another week, another photo

Sometimes visiting the garden is just busy-work: watering, take a few photos, and wishing it could happen a little faster. The flowering of the chives and cilantro did make it a little more interesting, but overall not much has happened in a week's time. I did notice a bunch of human & dog prints in my garden. So I put up some branchy bits along the front of the garden to keep folks and dogs from wandering in from the wrong locations. The weeds are catching up - hopefully we'll get some mulch soon.

Garden Contents:
6 Celebrity Tomatoes, 2 Brandywines, 1 Yellow Zebra, and 1 purple something or other. Also 4 Jalepenos, 1 Sweet Basil, 1 Thai Basil, Lemongrass, Scallions (2 seed brands) Dill, Cilantro (from last year's dropped seeds, and perennial Chives, Oregano, Onion.

I also planted Poppies and Cosmos along the fence.
