Garden picts!

Happy Thursday!



Hope you are all doing well! I'm still feeling a bit off so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm really trying to support my immune system so I'm taking oregano oil and an astragalus, reishi, & echinacea tincture. The fatigue is still getting to me but its better! I actually had a nap yesterday at 5:30...so not like me! If this carries on then my suspicions are on deficiency of some kind which I wouldn't be too proud about. Anywho..I finally got around to taking some pictures of my jungle...er..garden! Enjoy:)
























The clay pot contains purslane:) I really should have just scattered the seeds in the garden as they seem to like to be free and easy..and not all couped up in a pot! Like my 2 foot tall basil plant? I see lots of pesto in my future!!!






This is the baby pen! LOL Those leafy greens area going to be collard greens. I plant in the center is a sunflower. You can barely see them, but the green spec on the edge of the picture on the right side is holy basil.



Some beautiful flower power!!! I love these purple petunias

















These beauties were hiding!







I love this photo! This color is just so beautiful:) It just POPS.













The kale patch. I have three types of kale in there luciano, dinosaur, and curly.






















HUGE!!!

















The sunflowers. These are going to be beautiful..can't wait

















My tomato plants are growing like crazy but I don't think they are getting pollinated because there are still a ton of blooms on there:( We shall wait and see.











In this section I have onions, beets, and you can just see the carrots

I'm so in love with these carrot greens!! What do you think the carrot color is?? look below:)

Beautiful purple carrot!







Carrot central! These are an orange heritage variety!









This is going to be a very massive head of lettuce-butter variety







Swiss chard with the kale forest!


A little cucumber!!!








Gorgeous zucch plants!













I'm loving gardening and eating out of my garden everyday! I'm even going to be giving some of my produce away which I love. How cool is it to share home-grown food. Also tomorrow I'm going to be making some KRAUT!!!! YAY! Have a great day I'm off to pick some raspberries:)

Sorry if the wording is not beside the right picture..in the preview it isn't but on this page it is:(

your garden is luscious! looove the baby pen, the purple carrot, and all that kale!

i made kraut for the first time this month - it's much easier than i thought it would be and it tastes sooo good. john complains that it makes the house smell like farts, though. small price!=)

Love your lovely garden pics! I have the opposite of a green thumb :( my basil is still alive...I tried to grow it form seeds...no dice, so I bought an organic plant at WF...it's going strong, luckily..all the other seeds I planted back in March, started on a grow light....they are no longer with us :(

I have to tell you, I napped at like 5:30 the other day too..I NEVER< EVER map!! I was feeling super fatigue...maybe it was the full moon making us crazy ;-)

I'd hate to think of deficiency, but it's a smart observation by you!

What an amazing garden. You must be so proud of it! The flowers are so pretty, and of course I'm wondering if they are edible too hehe:)

OH.MY.GOSH. I'm in LOVE with purple carrots!! I think they taste so much more earthy -- and that's a good thing! :-)
