let's start with the front of the house. our restorated wagon is still looking beautiful, i used the idea with the old rainboots which adds such a playful touch i am thinking of placing a second pair there. also in the front is our apple tree, on which i am counting 3 apples. this is more about having a pretty tree in the yard than about harvesting much though. we live just a short drive away from europe's largest fruit producing region, so we know where to go for our apples ;)
on the side of the house are our raised beds. i dropped everything that didn't work well last year, like radishes and carrots, and am sticking with what worked well, so there are only squash/pumpkins and green beans in there. behind the raised beds are our potatoes.
new this year is our little greenhouse. with our climate and the fair amount of rain we get here we never had a chance of growing tomatoes. now we have a few tomato plants in the greenhouse, as well as cucumber, which is growing very well, and we have been feasting on salad for quite a few weeks already. just infront of the greenhouse is the kid's garden patch. we are trying to grow some flowers for a cutting garden, we'll see how that goes.
in the back of the garden is our bean teepee. as i said i'm trying hard to keep the slugs away for the little plants to make it through these first weeks. i hope it works! not pictured are our blackberry bushes, that are yet to bloom but they are very dependable so i'm confident we'll have a good blackberry harvest come august/september.
so, what's growing around your garden these days??
