We spent all day Sunday in the yard and garden. Sean mowed the grass while I weeded the front decorative garden. I then moved on to the veggie garden where it was time for the onions and garlic to get yanked up out of the ground. I need the space for other stuff! :-)
I'm happy to report that our first garlic and onion crop was great. Not fabulous but great. I had four varieties of garlic and they all turned out decent sized. The white multiplier onions did good and so did the french red shallot. The potato onions were a bit on the small side, but I can imagine they pack more of a punch that way.
Now it's time for the tomatoes and peppers to grow so that we can make some salsa! Here are some more pics from the weekend.
Parched eggplants and peppers. All the rain we had last week made the top layer rock hard. These kids need some mulch, I know.
I leave you with a picture of my chamomille in the herb garden. Add some hot water, and we have a date!
Happy Gardening everyone! I hope you are not as stressed as I am! :-)
