The Blended Blog ladies are sharing about gardening through different climates. I’ll be sharing about gardening in NE Florida.
While some of my friends to the north are just emerging from the cold, we have been in growing mode for a few weeks now. When full summer hits it will be too hot for much of anything, but for now I’m enjoying watching my garden grow.
I shared how we put in these raised beds last year and I just love them!
Garden Bed #1
In the first bed, I planted tomato seedlings my neighbor so generously gave me. I didn’t have enough metal cages so Dad made some wooden ones. The metal ones are in bad shape. Next year I want these.
Garden Bed #2
The onion bed is doing great. We’ve been using onions all winter long. Apparently I planted them too deep because they didn’t become a bulb. They are just huge scallions but still tasty. I tried planting some lettuce. They came up but then died. I’ve been traveling so much that I think they didn’t get enough water. I really need to put in sprinklers back here. I will transplant the basil into the front empty part. Hopefully this week!
Garden Bed #3
The herb bed is doing well too. The parsley is huge and some is starting to bolt. The mint is spreading out and greening up nicely. We’ll have lots of mojitos this summer! I need to trim it back around the thyme and sage before it smothers it!
This little cayenne pepper plant survived the winter and after I trimmed it back it’s producing peppers again!
You can see where the mizuna self-seeded into the mulch is and growing! I’ll need to add that to my salads this week!
Do you grow a garden? What do you like to grow?
Now go visit Lana at My New Happy and Leslie at Once Upon a Time & Happily Ever After to see what they are up to in their gardens! One lives in Washington and one is in Texas! I bet their gardens are very different than mine!
