Full garden pic
Things have been busy, as usual, around here. But, I thought that I’d give you a quick update on how the garden is doing.
The onions & beans are coming along nicely. The carrots never did come up, so that row was tilled back under, and I will be planting more beans in it in the next week or so.
Onions & Beans
Here is a pic of our okra, corn, pepper, squash, & tomatoes.

My herb garden is also coming along nicely.
The only thing that didn’t come up that I planted was chives.
My marigolds, dill, echinacea, parsley, cilantro, sage, & some basil that I planted from seed have all come up & are coming along nicely! As soon as they are ready for planting, I will get them in the ground, & then I’ll be ready to mulch it all!
It won’t be long before I’ll be sharing with you about all of my canning endeavors! I can’t wait! It’s always a lot of hard work, but I look forward to it!
I was beginning to think that we were never going to get our garden in this year! But, we finally did it on Friday, May 9th!
Tomato & Pepper Plants
And just in time for the next round of rain that we got this past week. We already have beans & corn coming up!
And, I am finally getting a section of my herb garden in!
I still have a lot of work ahead of me in this area, but it’s slowly coming together! The colored pots contain seeds that, when they are big enough, will be transplanted into the herb garden. The larger pots contain my different basil plants (sweet, spicy, & cinnamon basil), mints, & fever few.
I absolutely LOVE this time of year!
We recently dealt with a situation that I never really thought could happen to us. We’ve been through numerous tornado warnings (several were very close calls), but we have NEVER had to deal with the threat of a fire!
