Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Since last Harvest Monday the tomatoes have really come into their own. This week I have harvested:
13 Amish paste
Also harvested this past week: 2 eggplants, 4+ cucumbers, 2 green peppers, and lots of basil.
Here are scenes of the garden.
Brussels sprouts are growing well.
An eggplant that was later picked on Sunday. Rather small but we were impatient to eat it.
Marigolds are keeping the tomato horn worms away so far.
Hope the green peppers will grow bigger. Slow growers.
Blueberries that are slowly ripening.
Beans growing tall but not flowering yet.
Zucchini will be producing soon, I hope.
Space to plant more beets in that one bed which has eggplant and peppers.
See more harvests at Daphne's Dandelions.
