How Does Your Garden Grow?



Mine is starting to come back since it was pulverized during Gustav. The Mexican sunflowers are blooming, and I just planted a gumbo Z'herbes garden and am enjoying the wee little baby green heads poking up through the dirt.

I'm also looking forward to daily green smoothies made from from the garden's pluckin's...

Notice that the stems on the rainbow chard shoots are already colored green, red and yellow.

  2. I'm officially jealous of your too-cool-for-words garden!! My pathetic little "garden" consists of parsley, basil, chives, and plant bugs! :)

  6. Those Sunflowers are just dazzling!
    I've not heard of or seen Mexican Sunflowers before. Do they smell?
    I LOVE the smell of Sunflowers - they have to be my favourite smell in the world.

  7. Wow! You can start growing things in October? Here, the leaves are all changing colour & everything is going into hibernation. Love the photos of the plant babies.

  9. What beautiful pictures. Makes me wish I had a yard of my own to grow beautiful things. Then again even if I did it's far too cold for growing. I concur with the others, I am JEALOUS you have warm enough weather to be growing such beautiful things right now.

  11. I envy you for your warm weather, dangit. I've had frost warnings (and then full-fledged frosts) for over a month now. Seedlings make me happy!
