Kim's Garden 5/23/11

Post  sfg4uKim on 5/23/2011, 11:00 am

Here are just a few pics from today. Ignore the fact that I need to mow the grass. : )

Those are very lovely and robust plants. I can see your veggie table filling up and overflowing this year.

As for the grass, I actually allow patches to grow in my perennial bed where I hand-cut them into smaller bunches and allow to dry so I can use them as mulch when dried. I love making my own mulch. Its also great greens for the composter.

Enjoy that bounty.

I think it is amazing how much can be grown in such a small space. Everything looks so green and lush--even the grass. I am covet your rain barrels. Very nice.

This is the first year I've started EVERYTHING (except the herbs & marigolds) from seed.

What a gorgeous garden! Very jealous that your's is so filled out....looks for some very yummy salads! I'm thinking mine would've been almost as grown as your's by now....if my giant "rabbits" would have understood I was building a garden and not an amusement park. Oh well- they've taught me well. Now- my fence is up....pups are out and we're back to buisiness....patience. Rolling Eyes

Completely understand Lemonie. My Beagles were stopped by the Garden Commander (www.gardencommander.com).

I'm so jealous of your big, lush plants! I'm struggling just to keep mine alive in this heat...and it's only May. Oh and I too and coveting your rain barrels. =P
