Our community garden plots are beside our condo, so every time you drive out, you get to see our gardens, warts/beauties and all.In my daydreams, I had hoped that my garden would be a showcase, the one neighbours would point to with wonder "Oh look how beautiful Jen's garden is". Well it's not happening like that. Late planting, poor soil, and bad weather have hampered all of us. My beets are yellowing, my zucchini is mildewed, and my cilantro has gone to seed. Also growing zucchini has been a struggle for me forever. I just can't grow them. No matter what I do, or where I try they just don't want to grow for me. This one is not mine, but hint, hint, maybe someone else will give me some of their harvest.
But I do have some wonderful and happy endings:Volunteer dill, I love dill.
Russian Blue potatoes, they are so tasty, and purple.
Oh look, purple broccoli! Just kidding. It's a hydrangea. Purple bush beans,, we ate them last night for dinner.
Tomatoes are soon to be ripe.
Peas are ready, carrots are coming along.
Lots of nasturtiums. Great in salads
Some great lettuce coming out of someones garden!So it really is a success, just not what I envisioned. And everything tastes better because we grew it ourselves.
