With that said, here are some pictures of various plants I'm trying to grow this year. One of the newest additions to the garden this year is corn. No clue on how to get it to produce, but several stalks are popping up.
Other new additions are swiss chard, kale (currently being eaten by an unknown critter) and peas (also being nibbled on, but I caught the inch worm, with, as The Hubster said, extreme prejudice).
Once again we're trying squash, both zucchini and yellow. Hopefully we'll get a squash, usually these plants get eaten by squash bugs or borers.
|Peruvian Lima bean plant|
A couple of years ago at a Superbowl party, the hostess bought a King Cake that came with a purple and white Peruvian Christmas lima bean. She didn't want it so I took it home and planted it. It produced well and I saved several of the beans. Last year, the beans grew but didn't produce pods. We're trying again this year. Fingers crossed.
Also making a return appearance are the asparagus and strawberries.
Had to cover the strawberries with milk crates to stop the mockingbird from eating the ripe ones. Pesky bird. This year we've actually gotten strawberries!!!
So, that's what's growing in my garden. As far as what's growing in my writing garden, well, Dragon Lover is now out everywhere including Barnes & Noble. Excitement! If you have a Nook, go get your copy now.
Happy Reading! And happy gardening!!
