Everything’s Blooming

I love this time of year in the garden, everything’s blooming. We’ve got more basil than I know what to do with,

First Tomatoes!

We ate the first tomatoes of the season today. Some sun golds and some sweeties, Delicious! It’s been amazing tomato weather, warm and dry. Sorry no pictures, you’ll have to take my word for it.

Succulents

I never thought I’d plant, let alone write about succulents. They are amazing, beautiful and quite surprising. I planted a few along the paths in the garden. They are spreading and look like alien plants. They started like this

And now they’re blooming.

They come in all shapes and colors and add a bit of interest as you walk through the garden.
