You brush against the basil and smell basil. You pick a snow pea and munch it.
Here I seeded some bee-attracting flowers because I thought there was room when the tomato plants were still tiny, but now the flowers are in with the tomatoes--which is okay, but my garden doesn't look as nice and orderly as some of the others.
The beans haven't started blooming yet, but they're wound up the stakes I tied with pink cord to help me see them. I keep stabbing myself on stakes.
Behind the beans are beets. In the foreground is a stray calendula another gardener gave me. Calendula oil has beneficial properties but I'm not going to make oil from a single plant, so it gets to have a carefree, flower-in-the-sun existence.
There's also arugula, some carrots, Scotch bonnets, rhubarb, red lettuce, onions, eggplant, green pepper, purslane, and a corner patch of blue cornflowers. Voilà: mon jardin.
it looks, and sounds, great. Will there be fresh produce on the table sometime for a shared lunch? I hope so!ReplyDelete
Fresh produce, yes! But when this summer are you within 1000 k of Montreal?ReplyDelete
Looks lush and jungly just as it should. Tidy gardens are a puzzle to me...ReplyDelete
