Gardens in the front yard and backyard blossoming well again this year. The front yard producing vibrant, varied, colored rose blooms of different sizes from bush to long stemmed I have planted throughout the years.
The backyard has the hearty green leafy vegetables I planted early blossoming with different lettuce varieties, mustard/collard greens, plus peas, beans and tomatoes starting to produce. Under way are items like asparagus, eggplant, a variety of peppers squash, cucumbers with more planned shortly. There’s also my herbs with different basil varieties, rosemary, sage, thyme, even the ever present pests mint plants. I am allowing the mints to grow on the outer edges of the garden since mints are good in teas and cocktails and have great benefits despite their propensity to try to take over the whole garden.
