I can't think of a better way to start the day than waking up before my boys and taking my coffee out to the garden. I take the hose around watering everything and checking on all my favorites.
This is a new rosemary plant just potted this summer. I think I bought a prostrate variety this time and it is coming along nicely.
My Tomato Bush Big Boy. They are not getting as tall as I expected but they are covered with little green gems. My mouth is watering already!
Variegated Sage flowers. I bought this variety just to add color to the herb pot. I haven't tried it in any cooking yet. I am really enjoying cooking with the other sage and the Italian herbs in the pot. I made a killer meatloaf this week with basil, oregano, marjoram, and parsley. It is gluten free and has Parmesan cheese instead of bread crumbs to hold it together.
Our first fig to ripen. The tree is covered in tiny green figs. Buddy has been watching them and begging to try one. He is going to be so happy to see this one!
Dark-leaved Hosta flowers. How delicate and lovely these flowers are! I don't usually get up close to really appreciate them.
What's in your garden today?
