I potted my tomatoes yesterday. I don't have much sunny garden space because I love the shade so much myself. The best spot for tomatoes is on the sidewalk next to the kitchen door so I put them in pots every year. This year I have two Better Bush and two Cherry tomato plants.
I also grow rosemary, chive, parsley, thyme, basil and oregano because I love to cook with them. Fresh tomatoes and herbs are the best! Today is a church picnic and I am bringing gf pasta salad made with chives from my garden. I was thinking about trying cucumber and peppers this year but decided that since I am joining a CSA I'll get plenty of those on a weekly basis. I let the little boys plant some pumpkin seeds but I don't know if they'll get enough sun to grow many pumpkins.
I put pots of petunia and impatience all around the porch and patio.
I am not getting many iris buds this year, compaired to the wonderful display I had last year. I think the plants are too crowded and need to be divided. I put them in this bed five years ago and it's time to spread them out some more.
What's growing in your garden? Put a link to your latest garden post in Mr. Linky below and let's do a round up!
Hurrah for the garden tour! I was working on my post and thinking about you when I clicked on your link, and voila, here it is. This week's stroll in my garden is focused on the shadiest part of my garden. I'm hoping to cultivate a "trillium sanctuary" of sorts-- a safe place for trillium to grow and thrive.
I don't have photos, but I just wanted to say I love this idea. We have coreopsis and mint growing. Some coneflowers. A lovely new fern. Will probably plant some sunflowers again soon.
Happy Spring! (Er, almost Summer maybe?)
It's too windy here today for any decent pictures (80 km/hour gusts) but I'll try tomorrow. Thanks for starting this up again!
What a neat idea! I'll keep this in mind for future Sundays... I got a new digital camera for Mother's Day. :-)
(Hopefully I'll have something to take pictures of, but the last few days I've seen little varmints in the garden. I guess we need finer chicken wire...)
I just found your blog through a link - and I'm already in love! Garden tours are such a great idea!! I'll be ready with pictures next weekend =)
Thanks everyone! I'm so glad to hear you will all be joining me. I am really sad today because I left my camera out in the rain and it doesn't work anymore. I don't know what I will do with myself if I can't keep taking pictures for Project 365!
Hi! My husband and I have made a Habesha Garden in honor of the siblings we are adopting from Ethiopia. The link is part III of III on my blog. We (and I use that term loosely) ripped up concrete and planted a bunch of stuff. Looking forward to seeing what comes up!
Hi! I work on a website where we're trying to find some of the world's best gardens (for people like me who need a bit of inspiration!) and your blog was recommended to me as having some wise thoughts and beautiful images. I was wondering if you would give your thoughts on any of the gardens we feature which you may have been to? Here is a link: http://www.worldreviewer.com/experiences/garden/
Thanks for your help and your images really are lovely.l
