Yesterday I started planting the vegetable garden. What you see here are perennials. Rhubarb, chives and horseradish. And the garlic I planted last Fall.
The Blog Tech helped me. All of a sudden he is very interested in gardening. He is back by the potting shed planting peppers. We are planting him a salsa garden. He picked out all the kinds of peppers and tomatoes he wants to make salsa.
I can't wait for the New Dawn roses to bloom over the potting shed. They put on quite a show.
To conserve room, we planted peppers between the garlic.
That is Teddy at the back of the pic drinking yucky water from the lower pond. My arborviteas have doubled in size. I can't wait to have a wall of green again.
More pepper plants were planted down the other side of the raised bed.
I have eggplants, cucumbers and celery to plant too.
I bought this for The Blog Tech. It is a crock of herbs to use in making Mexican Food. This would make such a good gift for someone into Mexican cooking or make one up with basil, oregano, parsley, etc. for an Italian cook.
We are also planting tomatillas for the salsa. And I bought some corn to plant too. I doubt that I will get any corn but I love to listen to it rustle in the wind.
