Winnie In Her Garden

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  This weekend I was able to spend some time in the garden.  We have been having a lot of sunshine and very hot temperatures.  I understand we will be having another heat wave this week.  It has been a challenge trying to keep my veggies and herbs well watered.  You may recall that I am doing tomatoes, peppers, and lots of herbs this year in addition to my usual flowers, etc.  I thought I would share the progress with you.  I posted in May when I started the plants.  They are growing nicely.  I have been using the parsley and basil in my cooking and marinating.

Basil and Parsley

Thyme and Rosemary

Peppers and Tomatoes

Tomatoes!!

More Tomatoes!

A Visitor (Who Loves My Herbs!)

Me and My Cone Flowers!

Thanks for meandering with me through my garden.  It is progressing nicely and I cannot wait for the tomatoes to ripen so I can make homemade pasta sauce to freeze for the cold winter!

Until next time, my friends!

Great job on your garden! Containers are the way to go to not have to weed so much. I should have thought of that a long time ago. heh.

What a lovely container garden!! I have never had much success with gardens but have never tried the container variety. Maybe next year!! Enjoyed seeing your pictures.

I bet the garden smells delish! I am a huge fan of herbs, but boy, can I not grow them or what?! :)

Love your garden photos. Those tomatoes will be sooooooooo good. Nothing like home grown. The only herb I have growing is a huge plant of Rosemary. It's been growing for about 3 years and this year I actually had to divide it. It was getting out of control. Of course I always forget to go pick some when I'm cooking.

Love the photo of you and the Coneflower. I planted 2 of them this year and look forward to watching them grow every year.

beautiful! And keeping the rosemary in a container is a good idea. Mine is starting to take over again and I hacked it back in the winter!

Thanks for the comment on blog! I love to hear from my readers. I really enjoy finding different ways the same pieces together. It makes for a lot of fun.

What a lovely garden you have. I enjoyed seeing all that you have been undoubtedly busy with lately. With this heat, I imagine you have to water every day to keeping it looking this good!

Hope you are having a wonderful summer.
