Tracey and I made having a garden a high priority when we were looking for a place to rent. We both love to garden.
Here are the edibles we've started growing this year so far:
- Beans (Blue Lake, Romano, Calypso, Soy)
- Snap Peas
- Dark Green Zuchini
- Peppers (hot and mild)
My morning ritual is to walk around the yard with my cereal bowl checking out the status of all that is growing. The weather here is just incredible. Balmy and warm with continuous sun and no rain -- which pretty much describes the weather here from about March to November.
We also planted some hollyhocks last year and this year have watched them grow and grow and grow. A recent measurement has the tallest just over 9 feet tall!
