Spring gardening…

Once again this year, the Somei-Yoshino sakura tree in our garden did not disappoint.
I have to thank again the previous house owner for planting this ornament almost three decades ago for our enjoyment.

Been spending almost all my ‘free’ time on gardening… as usual…
Am growing quite a range of vegetables in my patch… sweet potatoes, corn, carrot, onions, okra, buckwheat, various types of leafy greens, potatoes, peanuts (all but one seed was eaten by birds), pumpkin, cucumber, eggplant, bitter gourd, peppers, many strains of chilies (jalapeno, habanero, etc…), tomatoes, various types of beans…

Am immersing myself deeper into ‘companion’ planting… hence, calendula, dill, coriander, marigold, sunflower, nasturtium, lemon balm, different types of mint, borage, several types of basil, bachelor button, rue, sage, thyme, and some others that are skipping my mind at the moment…

Also in the process of making an ‘inventory’ of the plants and trees in our garden…
The list is still unfinished but wooh, think it is going to be quite a long list…

Meantime, am enjoying the lavender flowers in the herb patch manned by my missus… the bees seem to love the flowers too…
