(Late) Spring Planting

We've been so busy the last couple of months that our poor garden is showing the lack of tender loving care... 

(Please note - lettuce is not supposed to get to the point of flowering... oops...)

However, some of our other plants are still thriving! Most of our herbs (rosemary, thyme, mint, and oregano) are doing good. So good in fact that I had to go a-wall on the mint and cut his roots from growing into those around him. We also harvested the oregano and are currently drying it. 

The garlic we planted earlier this year is doing well -

As are the fig tree and blackberry bushes - 

And we still had a couple more carrots that were ready to harvest! Or so we thought...

 Until this is what I saw and realized that it was Friday the 13th. I won't be pulling carrots again that day...

This past weekend was our first opportunity to do some spring planting knowing we were already a little late on some things. I headed to Wabash Friday afternoon hopeful to get a few things and was pleasantly surprised with the selection.

We got three different types of tomatoes planted -

 Okra (which I'm not even sure we like and have no idea what to do with except fry, but somehow the lady guilted me into buying it. If you have any recipes please let me know!)

And some bell peppers (green, orange, and red) along with squash and zucchini!

Cucumbers -

A new basil plant (our last one died in the "frost" - the one night Houston dropped below freezing and killed a lot of the garden :-( )

And lastly our new cilantro and parsley plants -
I can't wait to eat our new vegetables this summer!!
