I've been working on a list of what I will grow again and what I won't. On the list for next year's crop: herbs, tomatoes, peas, carrots. What I won't grow: radishes (took up too much space for the amount they yielded), spinach (it easily became diseased), green onions (took too long to grow), cucumbers (cannot grow a single plant to save my life).
Here are some photos:
Don't forget, July Giveaway going on now.
Sweet pea plants - the birds, especially the quail, seem to really like them. Despite that, we've yielded a fair crop of delicious peas (T Rex Dad's favorite)! These will be on the list of growing next year. There are carrots to the right front.
Here are the herbs (clockwise: parsley, peppermint, basil, dill, and rosemary in the middle). These have done well. The birds ate the dill down to nothing and it grew back completely and it smells delicious!
One of the frogs living in our shed - there were at least a dozen - they were active and talkative - I love frogs in the garden!
It's hard to see, but on this radish plant is a preying mantis - we put out four mantis egg sacs and we've had several in the yard (they keep the wasp and spider problem in check) and we consider them good luck!
The highlight of my garden - the roma tomato plants. I've already harvested a couple excellent tomatoes and the plants are doing fantastically! They were a gift from Shelley for being accepted to nurse practitioner school. Next to them, a couple of the roma plants that I've planted are also starting to come up.
Giveaway rules are the same - entries are counted as one comment per blog posting per blog either T Rex Mom and Dad Tales or T Rex Tales. The entries are doubled at the end for followers.
