It's week nine of working in my raised bed garden. It's looking a lot fuller since I started it! As you can see, I've been slowly adding sections.
It's so exciting to see things growing!
The zinnias are *this close* to blooming!
The basil has gotten so big and fragrant.
We also have green beens....
And squash, among other things!
Even more fun that watching the plants grow is actually getting to harvest and eat them.
These are scallions. Not only had I never grown them before, I'd never even eaten them! They are a lot like onions. And the entire green top can be chopped up and used as an herb, kind of like chives. They are great in a baked chicken crust!
These are the tops of just three scallions! What we haven't used are chopped and in the freezer.
The lettuce has probably been our most sucessful crop.
We've been eating our lettuce crop for a month. When you snip off the big leaves, they regenerate bigger than ever! The best part is that we started harvesting it less than six weeks after planting. How's that for a fast turnaround?
Anyone else having fun in the garden?
