The nasturtium laced with raindrops made my morning….. so beautiful! They are almost big enough to start weaving through the fencing. My first nasturtium were grown in buckets on the side of our porch in Alaska….. by the end of the summer they were a beautiful tangled mass of flowers on each side. On of my favorite garden memories.

The lettuce & arugula are ready for picking, the squash are coming up, and the herbs are starting to really look nice. Everything in here is from seed, so it's all been a wait and see. I thought for sure I'd planted the sweet-peas too deep when they didn't appear after two weeks…. but I think they just needed a little warmth. They all popped up in the last week, intermixed with the nasturtium.

We harvested our first bundle of radishes. I inter-planted those with the beets. They are heavily shading the beets right now, but they'll all be pulled up within the next week, so the beets will have plenty of room in no time at all. The blossoms are forming on the tomatoes and peppers! The first flower on the pepper plant opened this week. Green is lovely, but blossoms always get me excited.

My calendula sprouted up in record time. It's amazing how quickly the seeds germinate in late spring vs. early spring. I'm so excited about having a patch of calendula for herbal remedies. Now just to find the time to get that chamomile patch planted before we head to Alaska……

The peppermint is doing nicely in it's pot. I nibble on it as I wander the garden. I'm keeping it in that bucket so it doesn't take over the garden. I think I'll have to thin the roots this fall so it doesn't get root bound. And we have our first raspberry blossoms coming along! The raspberry row is over next the bees, I'm pretty sure berries might be the thing I am most excited about on this little homestead of ours….

Tell me what's growing in your garden & leave a link if your taking notes as well…..

Happy Friday to you~~

xo,

  1. Your garden is so beautiful, and HUGE. It makes me wish I didn’t live in the city. We do not even have a yard and I miss having more space… especially for the kiddos to run around and play in. Fresh veggies, yum!!! Hope you enjoy them 🙂

  2. Thank you for the garden love! We just moved here last year from a tiny speck of a yard in suburbia….. so it feels huge to me too. Especially with the surrounding wild woods, which are not ours but certainly loved by us!

  3. Your pictures remind me of this poem:
    NATURE’S WHISPER (Poem by Soumita Sarkar Ray)
    Today a lot of winged colourful flies
    Whispered to me in a soft voice
    They said that I must hurry my pace
    To catch the time that’s passing by
    The dew drops on the leaf tip
    Shone to bewitch my eyes in flash
    Catch me if you can they urged
    To enjoy the life that’s passing by
    A rainbow peeped through the window
    It shaded the earth in it flattering hue
    Smile at me as I’m the smile of the sky
    Live the day if you desire to stay
    Tiny white blossoms did beckon me
    I am the light of the hour, closest to Thee
    Like me best be your all efforts
    If you want to shine for ever
    Every corner of Nature is overflowing
    With many springs of inspiring tales
    Life is nurturing a message within
    It’s for you to rise, see, feel and gain.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    I love the drops on the leaf edge <3, and the tiny buds. So hopeful.
