We have bunch of plants outside (not sure of the names of all them). I would take pics but its been raining like crazy and everything looks ugly. I want to try a raised garden with fruits and vegetables in it. Told my mother in law about it she said it would be a good idea. So anyways lol

beautiful pics everyone!

Warning: pic spam!

I was able to finally work in the garden yesterday. Haven't done that for awhile because I've been so sick. I also took some pics!

Here is one of my tomato beds. You can see a couple starting to turn. The fresh dirt with the netting is the pea patch we planted last night.



Carrots. Not alot of them germinated :(



Herbs. Basil, thyme, parsley, chives, and oregano.



Dwarf red delicious apple tree. It needs pruning and training.



Pumpkins, cucumber, and zucchini. No pumpkins growing yet :(



But I do have my first zucchini!!! One more day and we'll pick it.



Peaches. yum.



Black-eyed Susans?



Lastly, mystery plant with pretty flowers. Hummingbirds and bees like it whatever it is.

I think your garden is awesome! I'd love to have the room you have. Where did you get the dwarf apple trees? How big do they get? I wish I could have one of those! And your herbs look fantastic. <3

Oh and I believe your mystery plant is some kind of Fuschia. Hummingbirds do love them!

I wish I could take credit for many of the things that are growing in it

The apple tree came with the property, no idea how big it'll get, but it is trying! It needs to be pruned and trained back into shape.

Thanks for the compliment about the herbs. They're doing very well much to my surprise. They started as tiny $1 plants from the grocery store.

I had a friend come by today and ID'd it on the spot because her grandparents have a hedge of it. It's called a Himalayan Honeysuckle. No wonder the hummers love them!

I thought it looked like a honeysuckle but then I thought, "It's pink!" :/
