Hobby: Gardening

Just a warning. This post is picture heavy. We had a week of rain and everything exploded. Got our veggie garden ploughed and planted. Had to do it by hand because the rototiller broke.

There are (starting top-left going down the row) green peppers, onions, celery and a tomato, bottom row) two strawberries and another tomato. Watch, they’ll cross pollinate and I’ll end up with strawberries that taste like tomatoes or the other way around.

This next four are pumpkin, cantaloupe, melon and squash, but I’m not sure which is which because Husband planted them and didn’t put the little tags in front.

This is one of our apple trees and a lilac bush. There are so many flowers on this tree. I really hope we don’t get a pile of apples.  

I put my mint outside, but left it too close to the rain run-off. *shakes head*

The mint in the red pot might not come up, but I’m hoping the one on the right takes off. I love mint tea, especially after supper or before bed.
