Happy Monday! Weekend recap and some eye candy.

Projects completed this weekend:

  1. Tore out peas. Moved flower pots to fill the gap.
  2. Transplanted (switched locations of) peppers and carrots. (Peppers went to the hanging box. Carrots went to the wood planter.) So the peppers get more sun now.
  3. Harvested bunching onions for Potato & Onion soup.
  4. Harvested basil – it flowered again! >:| and made pesto. Ate it with pasta – Yum!
  5. Harvested pineapple sage, orange mint, spearmint, and lemon verbena for tea. Turned out a bit too lemony. Hubby said it reminded him of Pine-Sol. So, I won't use quite as much lemon verbena next time. That stuff is wicked strong.

The mints are growing like crazy!

Other stuff that's going on:
  1. The strawberries are finishing up.
  2. The lavender is starting to form blooms.
  3. Several more blossoms have opened on the eggplant.
  4. The beans are starting to bloom.
  5. The green garlic exploded – it grew 4-5 inches tall in just a few days.
  6. All the cilantro died. I'll try again next year.
  7. A little pile of stevia is sitting out to dry.
  8. Buds are starting to form on the squash vines.

Looking good from the street.

Damn, I love my view :)
