Wow! What a difference a month makes! We've gotten several inches of rain in the past two days and everything here on the OAH is green, green, green!
The first photo is a tiny okra plant tucked in with a small bed of thyme sprouts.
My good friend Rosemary! Isn't she lovely? Seriously, I'm amazed at how hearty and healthy this plant is. I'm thinking of adding more Rosemary to the front bed...it's beautiful and useful! Can't beat that!
The wando peas...crazy! I'll be planting those again for sure! They are looking great and are full of peas and blooms!
The lettuces are looking full and healthy. I love to plant a mix of lettuce...the contrasting colors and leaf shapes are so pretty.
Finally, a view of one of the gardens. In this garden, there are carrots, lettuce, spinach, onions, okra, thyme, squash, and potatoes. In the raised beds in the back, tomatoes, garlic, basil, Egyptian Walking Onions, peas, more peas, lima beans, and a pot of chives. There is also a tea pot planted with mint sitting in the raised bed on the left.
