Same Harvest Mostly, Carrots, Cabbage & Flowers


This will probably be the last week that I will harvest the asparagus.  Time to let it go to seed for next year!  I have even had enough to freeze a little for this winter even though Coco ate one little patch.  Will be harvesting lettuce for awhile, not many radishes and a few green onions yet to harvest.  Lots of Pak Choi which my daughter loves.


The carrots in the carrot boxes on the deck are growing nicely!  These are from the seed tape that I made last winter!  Can't believe they grew!  Think I will do that again next year.


The cabbages are getting huge.  I planted less than last year but still having a hard time getting the cover back on!


I just love all the colors now in this bed!  I couldn't decide which pictures that I wanted to post so there are four of them!


My sheep are in their pasture!


Just bought the red lily this year and love it!

 

I have lots of lambs ear.  Will probably have to corral it soon!  I hope you enjoyed looking at these half as much as I do!  Thanks for visiting!

I still dream of asparagus. Sadly it isn't doing all that well. I'll wait a couple years though before giving up on it.

Hi Daphne, Don't give up! I didn't know quite what I was doing and put a little in three different spots and they all grew! Maybe I was just lucky. Nancy

You said you had trouble getting the cover on your cabbages...so I guess that's how they are without holes? They look gorgeous! Mine are very holey :(

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Katy, Thanks! Yes, I do have a cover! My hubby made them for me. It really helps. The first year I grew cabbage I did not have one and my cabbages were a mess! Nancy

Julie said...

Beautiful cabbage! Mine seem to be really, really slow growing this year. Your flower beds are gorgeous!

Hi Julie, Thanks! Sure hope they produce well from here on out! Nancy

lynn said...

very pretty garden, nancy! love the old pump and cute sheep:)

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi lynn, Thanks! I grew up on a farm and loved the little lambs so I had to have some sheep! Hope the weather doesn't ruin the flowers! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Lynnie, Thanks! Because of our clay soil I needed some place that the carrots could grow down so hubby made a couple boxes for me. Did you get yours in? Nancy

Margaret said...

Your carrots & cabbages are so big! And your gardens are beautiful - it must be so nice to just sit outside with a cup of tea and enjoy the view.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Margaret, Thanks! It would be nice to sit outdoors and have a cup of tea but due to time and my allergies we don't do that much. We try to eat out in the pergola at noon when we can and that gives us a chance to enjoy the yard for a bit. Nancy

Hi Nancy! Your flower beds are beautiful! And the carrot box looks so nice! You will have lots of yummy carrots soon! The cabbages will soon be outside the box the way they are growing! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Felecia, Thanks! I planted to many cabbages in a box last year and had a hard time getting the cover on. Planted fewer this year but looks like I will have the same problem!! Nancy

Lisa said...

Nancy, all your gardens look so lovely!!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Lisa, Thanks! Too bad the weeds continue to grow back!! Nancy

Audrey said...

Nancy, your yard is very pretty regardless if it IS hard to mow. We have some areas that the riding mower cannot go so I mow them with a old fashioned push reel mower or the weed eater. Love seeing all the fresh veggies. Hope I get a few tomatoes off my three struggling plants.

Hi Audrey, Thanks! I wish we had a push mower for that area! I am afraid I am not keeping up very well to things this year. Hope your tomatoes come through for you! Nancy
