Back in the Vegetable Garden

Last year my vegetables grew great.

Until my garden was suddenly overcome by weeds and then the vegetable plants got so overgrown and mixed with the weeds which turned into a giant green jungle and I got so overwhelmed I couldn’t look at it.

This year I really wanted to avoid that. So I make sure to spend a few moments once a week pulling weeds and taming the vegetable plants as they grow bigger and bigger.

My camera did a good job with this picture. Check out the detail!

I planted okra for the first time!ย  But I’ve never cooked with it before, hopefully I can make something good with it.

This year I bought all my plants at a nursery instead of starting them by seed indoors during the winter. It was a lot less work but it took forever for them to get big enough to start making vegetables, so next year I’ll go back to starting seeds indoors.

So far I’ve managed to avoid becoming overwhelmed, and I’m glad to be excited about my vegetable garden again!

    1. Thanks! Having a vegetable garden can be pretty fun!

  2. Your veggie garden is beautiful! Did I spy an aubergine/eggplant? I’ve never seen Okra growing before! Your garden looks truly beautiful! My veg are rather behind. My courgette is sporting loads of male flowers but no females yet so no courgettes. Lots of tomatoes but still green!

    1. Thanks! Yes my eggplants are nearly ready. My garden this year is a bit slow too. Still haven’t gotten any tomatoes!

  3. I love your garden. I’ve been growing mine in pots, but yours is downright magical. It inspires me to want to try to make a bigger one sometime in the nearby future ๐Ÿ™‚
