My gourd plants are flourishing.
We planted okra this year for the first time, and it's coming up nicely!
These three beds are doing well.
White potatoes. They're ready to come out.
Matt's Wild Cherry tomatoes:
My cherry tomato plants that overwintered on the porch are bearing well:
Our zucchini and cucumber plants are taking off:
I bought some lavender plants this year that are supposed to be hardy in our area, which lavender usually isn't. Our rainy weather just kills most lavender off. See this raised tire bed?
The dead lavender plant is one I bought at Lowe's, an ordinary lavender. It thrived as long as we were in a drought, but as soon as the rain came, it died. It really died.
But the lavender plants that resist our humidity and rain overload?
All 3 of them look like this -- so healthy!
I've also been drying more mint, lemon balm, and tarragon for my herbal tea.
