The cat has made herself a bed on our strawberry plant. Strawberries and cats coexisting on my patio garden.

What a cute little face!

    funwithplantingplans:

Beets grown by local urban high school students, in the community garden, and sold at the farmer’s market. I talked to them a bit about what they did and it was so cool to hear them talk about gardening and what they learned. Such nice, polite, friendly kids who didn’t seem to mind getting up early on a Saturday to go sit under a tent in the hot sun and talk to me about what they do.
Perhaps I am jaded by the daily sight of obnoxious college students who cannot seem to get out of their pajamas by 11am and have their head inches from their phone at all times, while smoking cigarettes leaning against posts with signs that say “no smoking,”  but it’s nice to see people being good people.
Whoa Jess, get on that rockin’ chair on the porch and tell em’ to get off your lawn while you’re at it.

The heat is getting intense, and the tomato plants are showing their discontent. But it hasn’t stopped them from bearing the most lovely fruit. Such earnest plants! I love them so…

What a beautiful tomato! Great shot.

    We’ve harvested two types of tomatoes already: Nyagous and Pink Love. Nyagous is smoky sweet and Pink Love is tart.

    Lemon Squash is extremely prolific! Cucumbers are also prolific. Can’t wait for the rest of the tomatoes and peppers to start ripening. Yummy!

    Wow! Everything looks great!

Before & After! We have “Violet Queen” cauliflower, Romanesco, cucumbers, lemon verbena, spearmint, roma and cherry tomatoes, chives, green and purple jalepenos, and cherry and bell peppers outside. & Thai basil, parsley and oregano in a window planter for in/outdoors. :D  Needs a few finishing touches for appearance purposes, but we have a garden!

Very nice!

    My brother is in town and with his help, I have been slowly installing pea gravel paths around my garden beds.

    Yay!

    Looks great! And all the plants looks super happy and healthy!
