garden update – a few herbs, more vegetables, and a NEW chest (sort of)

Posted in fitness & health

Cooler temperatures with a nice breeze and cloudy skies made yesterday (Wednesday) the best day to be productive. And productive we were!

The B. and I started with the eggplant: Listada, Green Apple, Bonica (the classic).

We then planted the only Zucchini Romanesco which The B. had grown from a seed in the comfort of her condo. Other Zucchini Romanesco seeds were planted before we covered everything with this veil to keep the bad bugs out.

Here you have the Italian Parsley. We planted some Thyme of Provence next to it, and there’s also Rosemary growing nearby.

Isn’t this the cutest little Purple Basil baby? It will grow in the shade of the lovage plant, on the left, and whatever’s on the right (can’t remember the name). We planted basil seeds beside the tomatoes, so it’ll also be in the shade. The B. says basil doesn’t like too much sun.

And finally, remember the rickety chest The B. was stuck with? And how she was promised a better one? Well, her dream came true: introducing THE NEW CHEST.

The inside looks like the entrance to the catacombs…

I hope The Verdun Horticultural Society won’t come looking for its sign, because that would leave The B. with a dirty topless chest. HA!

    Oh Mudd all I can say is that you’ve done it again! I was thinking of growing a herb garden or anything really 🙂 All my family members have green thumbs except for me. So you’re not only my artistic inspiration but your now my horticultural inspiration too! 😀

    Hey Aggie…

    Last time I had a BIG garden was back in 1979 — I’m SO enjoying myself. And can’t wait to eat all the good, fresh, organic produce. YESSS. Hope you get that herb garden going. Go, Aggie, GO GO GO!

    Having an herb garden will be so great for cooking!
    I’m great at growing weeds 🙂

    Hey Ann!

    Herbs and all sorts of organically grown vegetables = YUM.

    Congratulations on being an Ace Weed Grower — BRAVO 😉
