I need to take better photos when the lighting isn't so bright and washing everything out but you get the idea of how the yard project is coming along.....
Several of the veggie boxes are loaded with peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, onions, cucumbers, potatoes, peas, lettuce, beans, herbs, and lots of weeds.
I swear you can sit and watch weeds grow right before your eyes. They're alike squash plants!
I tried an experiment this year. I am forever always trying new things to see if I can mash more into what little space I have. I planted our onions in between the potato plants. As you can see, the potatoes are thriving! I hope the onions are too........
Another washed out photo of what are actually quite beautiful flowers!
These purple flowers over our arbor have exploded this year! I love seeing the contrast of these dark purple and a little further in the back you can see the same variety, just a lighter purple. Apparently these are hard to get to explode like this around here. I've been asked quite often how I get ours to be so full and lush and with so many blooms. I tell people the secret is in their lack of care. I planted them and haven't given them any notice since! You ignore them!! And then they vie for your attention! Their like kids. The more you ignore the louder and more obnoxious they get.
I'm a sucker for flowers.......... I know veggies have their place...... on someone else's plate........ I'd rather plant flowers.
