Next we move on to the fruit trees. I haven't gotten many pics of them flowering this year. We have had some wind storms that knocked the petals off. Also, I work nights, so there is that...

This year, I'm giving in to the urge to try growing something tasty in the front garden. So rather than get the neighbors riled up right away with a big patch of tomatoes, I opted for some more understated peppers and eggplants mixed in with some flowers in some nice containers. If all goes well, next year, I'm putting in raised beds.

|Eggplants with purple petunias and some pretty little white flowers that remind me of Mexican heather.|
The final installment for today comes from the vegetable garden. The best for last? Probably not. I can't really say. I'm pretty biased all the way around.

So many things are growing so well already. I have about 10 blog posts in mind right now. Stay tuned for more about tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and maybe even clematis. But, first, I need to go out an cut greens for a salad.
