I’m back again to share my garden tour. I’m starting with a favorite of mine. The Mimosa blossom. So pretty and delicate, and fragrant. We can walk outside the door and smell them. The hummingbirds love them, also.
Here’s the Mimosa tree view from the back yard. See all the blossoms? It’s a gorgeous tree. We lost a large branch off it during storms recently, but thankfully the rest of the tree didn’t go down.
This is part of our vegetable garden. At the bottom of the picture, you can see the leaves of our one and only surviving broccoli plant. Front to back, the rest of the plants are cabbage, zucchini and yellow squash and green beans. There is another row of green beans behind the one you can see. Actually, there are 4 rows. We have two fence lines and plant on both sides of the fences. We have lots of green bean blossoms now, so we’re looking forward to a lot of green beans. I’ll be canning them. 🙂
The squash and zucchini plants all have a lot of blossoms. We did find one zucchini when I was taking pictures that will be ready soon.
The cabbage hasn’t come to a head yet, hopefully the heat hasn’t got to it and it still will. I can’t explain why next to this perfect one is one riddle with bug holes. I’ll just take it. lol
These are some of my Armenian Cucumber plants. This is the first year I’ve grown them and they came highly recommended. I’m looking forward to trying them.
These tomato plants are on the outside of the compost bin. On the side, and more going behind it. There are a lot of blossoms and we even found a small green tomato.
This is on the inside of the bin pictured above. More volunteer tomato plants! These All these plants are doing so good! This is the side of the compost bins that is ready. I pulled out as much as I could without hurting the tomatoes. The other side of the bins is the current one we’re adding to, and it now has a couple of tomato plants growing in it. I think we’ll have a bumper crop of tomatoes this year!
I’ll take pictures of the tomatoes in the actual vegetable garden after we get them weeded. lol
The raspberries are blooming again and we have a few berries that will be ready in the next couple of days. We always get more berries in the fall than we do in the spring. I’m looking forward to canning some and freezing some.
My husband found this mystery plant in the backyard in front of the rabbit hutch. No rabbits currently live there, but I guess the plant likes the fertile soil left behind by the previous tenants. lol
I had a few sweet potatoes start growing in the kitchen so I planted them in this planter in the front yard. The vines are growing everywhere. It looks a mess because I put all the vines back in the planter instead of all over the flower garden. I hope we get some sweet potatoes from them.
The butterfly bushes are still blooming. New growth is coming, too, so we’ll have flowers for a while. The butterflies (of course, lol), bees and lots of other insects love these flowers.
I love the little Feverfew flowers, too.
Hope you enjoyed touring my gardens!
