Knee high by the 4th of July
Our front yard garden is looking spectacular, I must say.
I can't take much credit for it, I think I mentioned that before, as growing and weeding and watering and fertilizing and squashing squash bugs is really Marty's job. My job happens when he brings a basket of freshly picked whatever and says "don't let it go to waste." He grows, I cook, we're pretty complimentary to each other that way.
I will, however, take total credit for these which I'm growing one bed over.
After two years of living in our new house, I finally have flowers in the front flower bed just as I had imagined. They're all wild, unkept and cottagy — exactly the way I LOVE flower beds to look. I'm not a big fan of the structured bed of annuals.
This year, we tried a few new things like nasturtium, and fennel, and tarragon. We (Marty) planted a lot of things in containers this year. We had to pretty up the front yard garden so the neighbors would approve I guess.
And, much to our excitment, some of the things we've never had success with, like cabbage and broccoli, were successful.
This beauty has been cut down and is on our 4th of July menu as fresh slaw. Hope you all have a great holiday!
