It’s August and the garden is in full swing! I’m so excited to finally be harvesting some goodies in the backyard. I got so excited in fact, that I went out and bought fresh Mozzarella and Balsamic for Caprese salads we can make with the tomatoes and basil in the garden.
Here’s a view from above. I love the stones and the mulch really makes it pretty.
Here’s a view from above that shows the pallets on the garage wall. They have really exploded in the last week!
Don’t know where this guy thought he was going…
Always my favorite, snap peas. These didn’t last long in the garden when I was a kid because I would sneak outside and eat them off the branches.
The yellow zucchini is finally growing! For a while I thought we got a plastic starter plant…
So that entire bush is cherry tomatoes. We’ve been bringing them in by the handful.
This is the first batch of hundreds.
So we got all this mulch for FREE when boyfriend’s grandfather cut down an old birch in his front yard. We got the chopped up stump and it has been doing a great job of keeping the weeds at bay. And it’s gorgeous. More so than the hay we had down before.
I love that we haven’t bought lettuce in weeks. We have our own little lettuce patch.
I love this view. We decided to yank the radishes out because they took up too much space for the small amount of yield.
Basil! I don’t know what it is about the smell of basil but it makes me so happy. This picture was taken just after we harvested 3 pounds for the restaurant boyfriend is head chef at.
The very pretty free mulch surrounds the tiny “watermelon” coleas and right beyond that is our carrot patch. The tomatoes coming out of the pallet are getting a little out of control…
Do you have a garden in your backyard? Or, front yard? What do you grow? Happy gardening!
