|We are harvesting cherry tomatoes, can't wait for the big guys to ripen!|
Speaking of lots of rain, Hubby arrived home a couple nights ago to tell me what a gorgeous sunset there was that evening. He also noticed that the forest is so dense this year, we cannot see said sunset from our place.
All one can see from our porch is a beautiful orange hue between trees and brush. The vegetation on the side of the county road is so high, we can't even begin to see the neighbor's red barn, either. But I digress... here is my garden.
|The new herb garden raised bed after a couple weeks of heat and sunshine!|
|This year I scratched the nasturtium seeds on a nail file before planting, it worked great!|
|The original herb garden bed being taken over by apple mint. :)|
|Parsley that reseeded itself from last year from one little plant!|

|Bush beans in front, pole beans... on the teepee. Bush beans are producing now.|
You will notice in all the photos that the weeds abound, too, with the summer heat and sun. Especially after the rainy Spring. I do try to keep them in check but to no avail.
Overall, I'm pleased with the garden considering it got a late start. I need to make a decision about the apple mint. That length is after TWO major cuttings so far and even then it is tall again. I do love apple mint so I think I'll keep it and move the other herbs still holding on there.
