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:
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.
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.
