Garden 2013 Update 6

Garden


I'm behind a week again. I have just gotten around to uploading some pictures of the garden from last Sunday -16th of June. This is a great year for the garden. June has been warm and sunny many days. But it is dry. We just got rain this week but still not enough so G has been busy watering every day. One day he will learn and install drip.

We have continued to eat salads during the week. It is warm enough that we are enjoying them. I usually have a protein in the salad to make it a complete meal - Nicoise salad with Tuna, Mexican Shrimp salad with a tangy cilantro dressing, warm goat cheese in panko crumbs. This week I got some large beets that I've roasted and plan to have with some blue cheese.

Here's some pictures of the veggies:

I am in awe of your garden, your veggies and flowers bring a smile to my face! I have been lazy this year, only a few herbs in pots in my screened in porch. I had a gorgeous echinacia (sp?) but my neighbor thought it was a WEED and dug it up while I was in Italy last month!!! Every time I look out my kitchen window and see "where it used to be" I cringe. I will have to buy a new one but the garden center near my house didn't have them.

Anyway, I admire your dedication...gardening is a LOT of work!!

Wow Marta, everything looks great this year! I am filled with admiration. I love the color of the euphorbia.

Hi Marta!

VERY LATE but wanted to say that I love seeing all of your garden photos! I am in Steamboat right now. My aunt is doing a straw bale garden. Interesting concept. Some stuff is up but most won't be ready until after I leave. I hope you are enjoying your summer!
