Once of the second type of tulips ( which I didn’t write down ) is up. This is the one I’ve been waiting for, with the yellows and red. It’s just beautiful. It is much smaller than the other variety though.


Here is a picture of the soon-to-be melon garden. It is twice the size that it was last year. Two nights ago I removed the old winter veggies that had already flowered and gone to seed. All I have left is carrots and a few herbs. The 3×3 herb garden is pretty full, so I’ll have to relocate these to one of the other beds. We’ll plan on eating the last of the carrots this week. I have 2 cantaloupe, 2 watermelon and 2 cucumber seedlings that I picked up last weekend, awaiting their new home. The natural gardener only had 1 variety of each, which is why I got so few. I plan on going again this week to see if their selection has improved.

Herb garden with society garlic taking center stage.

Dewberry. I found it interesting how bushy this plant is compared to the blackberry, which is one long stick. 

I love the instant gratification of beans. As soon as they pop up from the ground they are instant plants, no tiny delicate leaves. In a day or two they’ll be double the size of my peppers. I planted both green beans and butter beans. Mmmm! 
I also have two tomato plants in this bed from a swap I made with my neighbor. I gave her 1 roma and 1 sun gold. I have no idea what she gave me, I’ll have to ask her again. I’m noticing a trend here of me having no idea what’s planted  in my garden 🙂


The okra took quite a beating from the cold. I covered everything with row cover, but the leaves still haven’t quite recovered. It appears the flowers don’t care though. They plan on blooming anyway. 

Thai Basil. Added this because I thought it was pretty.
