Herbs, Flowers and Veggies

I got some gardening in this weekend.  Feels good to get the new garden patch planted, but when I hurt immediately, that's not a good sign for the days to come. Ugh.

Oh well.  At least I got to poke around the yard all day, sweat a bit, and accomplish something.

Meanwhile...the herbs are doing well:

 Still lots of flowers here and there:

One of my orchids is in bloom:

This patch of Gaillardia (and other weeds) is doing so well I can't bring myself to dig it up to make a new garden:

But I did manage to plant this garden with green beans and carrots today:

I buried a black pot in the middle for kitchen scraps.  I placed a broken clay pot on top to keep critters out.  I had a board in the middle of this garden at one point for a walkway but replaced it with mulch.

And I'm very relieved that my new moringa seeds are viable!  I'll get to work planting more seeds now.

The tomatoes are starting to come in:

And two more huge papaya!

I also decided to plant the Goji Berry.  It's growing like crazy!

After sitting on the deck with a cold drink of water, pondering the back yard, I decided we need more lemon grass.  I really love how it looks and it's wonderful in tea.  Not so sure it will work as a mosquito repellent but I want more in the yard regardless.  So we went to the Asian market and bought 4 more stalks which I'll plant this week.  

It was a good day.
