From The Garden: A June Update

It’s been a long time since I did any gardening. Last summer I didn’t feel like it, even though Husband did plant some tomatoes. This year I’m feeling a little more ambitious, but first a few pictures of the flower gardens.

Front garden is looking good this year. Still needs some colour down at the front. Maybe when the annuals go on sale we’ll pick some up.


Remember the half-moon garden from last month? This is it now. It’s going to be a butterfly garden. below are some other flowers growing around the property.

Now onto the veggies.

Beets and radishes in containers. They’re already sprouting, but I can’t remember which is which.


Carrots will take some time. Two weeks to sprout.


I read that you could grow cucumbers up a trellis, so I bought a sturdy metal one. I can secure it to the deck if need be.


Red peppers. I was going for green, but when I saw the built-in trellis I thought what the hell.


Basil. One of three herbs we bought this year.


There are herbs in here….somewhere….I should do some weeding.


How are your gardens doing this year?

    How deep is your carrot container? Unless you planted the short ones, you might run out of root space. Everything looks great though. I love the little blue flowers.

    Every year I promise myself I’ll include more flowers. I have more than last year but still pitifully few. I just don’t feel as confident with flowers.

    • It’s about six inches deep and they’re supposed to be small variety. We’ll see in a few weeks. That is, if the neighbourhood bunny doesn’t get to them first. 😀
