Onions, carrots, bell peppers, and more. We have been blessed with a good amount of rain so far.

This is the part of my garden that's on my patio. It's early and it doesn't look like much now, but later it will be beautiful. I have more plants along a chainlink fence and will take another photo when those grow a bit.

I grow 5 slicing tomatoes, 1 cherry tomato, French Breakfast radishes which I plant around the tomatoes and peppers, 2 ichiban eggplants, 1 Bella Rosa eggplant, 2 jalapenos, a pot of celery, a pot of yellow wax beans, a pot of snap peas (not doing well), five window boxes of flowers, three large pots of different flowers (one large pot is all sunflowers), and your basic herbs (parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, dill, cilantro, basil, mint and, if I can find it this year, marjoram which I prefer to oregano.) And some hanging flowering plants, too. And a lemon tree that I grew from an organic lemon seed. And chives, everywhere!

I have to grow almost everything in pots, since I live on a ledge and only have about 1/2" of topsoil.

What a pretty garden! Is this on your property, John? Didn't you have a plot in some community garden?

Lee
Yes, this is our yard. A few years ago we had plots in a community garden and it was more work than what we got out of it. Some contractor came in, took over, and a lot of folks left. What I miss is the CSA but it had it’s issues, too. They quit and found regular jobs but still have their filbert orchard.

these are some of her tomatoes she started from seed this winter. These are Italian canning tomatoes and hope we get enough to can. When she put these in this new raised bed several weeks ago they were only about 3” high and they grew like crazy. She put up this new support thing to keep them from toppling. The wire cages don’t work well in raised beds from our experience.

Today…

I stacked more pear wood to the right of my wood this morning.
I’ll split more before it gets to hot.

Thanks! The flower garden is not my doings, my Sweetie created that. I dug the 5000 gallon pond and She took over after that last year. She used to work at a nursery.

The tomatoes have grown, have blossoms but no tomatoes yet. The tomatoes beside the house have produces lots of plum tomatoes as well as a few heirlooms. There is lots of time - ours produce into the Fall But never enough to can.

The pear wood is basically all split and started on the plum wood.
