After volunteering on the farm, I sent a little garden crazy. Okay, maybe a lot garden crazy. I started by adding more veggies — didn’t get pictures of all of them, but squash, zucchini, cucumber, tomato and peas were all planted. Plus a raspberry bush.
I also added a few new herbs, since I found a place that sold chamomile and yarrow. A coworker also picked up some lemon balm for me, which hasn’t gone in yet but will be a nice addition. I still would like to try to add mugwort this year, though that’s harder to find.
I also remembered that I keep bemoaning my lack of flowers, so I picked up some bougainvillea and a second jasmine plant — this one already flowering.
It’s a lot, and I still keep thinking of plants I could add! So far, this is what I’ve got:
Raspberry bush (unknown variety)
Blueberry bush (Misty)
Three tomatoes (Bonnie Grape, Big Boy and what I thought was Early Girl Bush but may be Park’s Whopper, as there were conflicting tags)
Cantaloupe (variety unknown)
Boston Pickling Cucumber
Dwarf Grey Sugar Peas
California Poppy (Moonshine)
Most of it’s on my deck in containers. The tomatoes are out front, also in containers, but the front gets more sun than the back so seemed a better choice. The peas and raspberry are again in containers, but set up against the backyard fence, in hopes that they will be able to climb on it. So many plants!
