Bloomin' Tuesday

We got some much-needed rain yesterday,
with more scheduled to make an appearance
the rest of the week.
The garden and I couldn't be happier!

Rescued these from the "dead" rack for .35 cents each.

Marigolds are poppin' back all over!

Native Mondo grass

Lettuce gone to seed.
I'm leaving it right where it is,
hoping that it will reseed itself for the fall.
I'm so glad that I got a few harvests out of it this spring.
The variety I used was so tender and almost sweet.

The peas have been a bit disappointing.
Not sure why they are not doing better.

The potatoes seem to like this spot.

Basil coming up gangbusters!
Smells SO good!

The peanuts are comin' along.

Watermelon is slow growing.

Two tomato plants on the patio may actually yield fruit!
Maybe the bit of shade in the afternoon
has helped them stay strong.

Thank you Mother Nature for providing just what we need!

Enjoy your Bloomin' Tuesday, y'all!
