As we approach midsummer, I thought it was a good time to check in on the status of our gardens. We planted ours super late so I don’t expect to be harvesting for a while yet but I’m excited just to see things growing.
I’d love to hear what you’re growing this year, and how things are going for you, too!
A little about my garden
Our vegetable garden is a little plot in our backyard, fenced in by chicken wire, about six by twelve feet. So far the homemade fence is working well to keep the bunnies and rats away from our precious bounty.
We are also trying to revive a couple of citrus trees and a peach tree that were here when we moved in. The peach tree is about half dead, but has a good amount of fruit on the scraggly but alive portion.
Here’s what we’ve got growing so far:
- mint (2 kinds)
- tomatoes (2 kinds)
- a mystery vine (maybe squash or cucumber)– a volunteer from our compost)
Today’s Q & A is simple:
What are you growing in your garden? Is it thriving? Just surviving? Have you harvested yet? Tell us all about it in the comments.
If you’d like to link up a photo on Instagram, just snap one of your garden and tag it with #SHmGardener. I’ll be posting mine there, too, as things develop, and I’ll be sure to keep you updated there on my mystery plant!
