I haven’t been writing on this blog for some time, which, of course, defeats the purpose as a gardening journal. 4 days ago I harvested 2 ounces of Dragon Purple Carrots. They were really quite purplish, which surprised and delighted me because some other “purple carrots” I’ve seen were really pink. The beans (either Strike or Masai Green) are starting to mature, so I’ll get a handful of green beans soon. For some reason I only have two tomatoes. There were flowers, but the fruits did not grow at all.
This is one pot that is growing in front of out chimney. It’s mostly filled with beans, bunching onions, and basil, but there is some chard in there as well. I had pulled all of the lettuce to give to the chickens, as it had bolted. Our California weather just kept swinging back and forth between cold and hot. We don’t eat much lettuce anyways.
Another pot ( I have 2) It also has some carrots still in it.
Sorry, it's a bit fuzzy, but here are some of the beans
more bean flowers
See, the other flowers don't have anything.
The morning glories have taken over part of the dog kennel and our tangerine tree.
my basil's a bit on the scrawny side, but smell wonderful.
And here are my ladies:
Scratch corn treats!
"Any more?" Yuuko is still looking at the floor "Hmm, maybe I missed some."
Oh, no more? How disappointing.
