Spring Garden 2018


When we pick the first green onion and first green tomato from the spring garden, then all that planting we did on a cold day in January pays off!  There is nothing like taking a walk out to the garden and coming back to the kitchen with a basket full of fresh vegetables for the evening meal. We have had a great spring garden this year with just the right amount of rain to have wonderful green vegetables and weeds of course. We are trying a little different garden space approach this year in a smaller area with maybe not so much to maintain, but with great production.

We Planted The Bell and Jalapeno Peppers in between the rows of  the onions
and so far that is working out real well. As we harvest the onions the peppers will have all the space they need to produce.

It is so much fun to watch it grow. We have a row of Okra planted on the outside edge of the onion patch. We have really utilized every square inch of the space.

In the front beds we have our tomato patch and across the path we have potatoes, collards, asparagus bed, green beans and mixed greens.

We don't want to leave the garden area without saying good-bye to our little friend who feeds him or herself at the base of the bird feeder. There seems to be enough for everyone here at the cottage!

  2. I could eat fried green tomatoes for breakfast right now! And look at all of your basil! You are off to a fantastic start. You are making me wish that we would have committed back in the winter too. Maybe this year. :)

    Happy Gardening and have a great weekend. :)

  3. Your garden is thriving really beautifully! I planted early veggies in April and tender ones in May. Things are looking good, but no harvest yet. Lettuce will be ready soon. Your fried green tomatoes look delicious! Thanks for sharing with the Garden Party.
