Welcome to my Garden

I finally snapped some, okay, a ton of pictures this weekend while that bright shiny thing in the sky peeked out from behind the clouds! I'm amazed at how quickly the garden has taken hold and I've already harvested lettuce, spinach and Swiss chard! I'm going to let the pictures do the talking for the most part...enjoy!

Lemon Balm in a container on the back porch:

Rosemary on the back porch as well...can you smell that focaccia bread?

Basil for pesto

Garlic chives for...something!

Sort of struggling box 'o' herbs...I think it'll bounce back and grow up real strong

Onions growing right along. I have 4.5 squares of onions with roughly 16 onions growing in each square.

Name that seedling...Steve accidentally sent a frozen Halloween pumpkin through the snow blower last winter and I think this might be a pumpkin seedling. I transplanted it from the edge of the driveway to my garden. We'll see what grows!

And for the grand finale, here's a few views of the two garden beds this past weekend.
This bed was filled with soil just last week. Still 11 square feet of space to grow! Cucumbers and green bean seeds are planted along the fence.

And...this is what my garden looked like a little over a month ago on April 28th!!
Check out Amy's garden posts at What Did She Do Today?. Penny-Wise People has a nice local garden coming along as well.

I love your garden. I live in a small apartment in Washington, DC so I don't have any place for a garden, but one day I would love one!

Your broccoli looks amazing!! Ours is still really tiny - but we're hoping it'll grow!

Drove through Lee today, and noticed the sign is up for the Farmers' Market - it's starting this week (Thursday). Hooray!
