Ready for more?

How about a few days of vegetable garden photos? Here's what it looks like right now. It may look relatively weed-free from this distance, but I'm battling the purslane almost daily. On Sunday I planted out some habanero pepper seedlings that have been in the greenhouse, not growing, since they sprouted.

The chard (in the foreground) was a gift from a friend with a surplus. It's the red-ribbed variety.

So, to recap, this year's garden is home to twenty-four tomato plants, three kinds of beans, six bell pepper plants, two zucchini plants, two varieties of pumpkin, and eight chard plants. I'm not growing eggplant or cucumbers this year. I'll post a few close ups over the next few days.

  1. Why aren't you eating that purslane? Eat it when it is young....
