Garden 2013 Update #1

The general health of my garden is much better this year as compared to around this same time last year (click here to see photos from this time last year). The plants are fuller, stronger and overall they look better. I’ve harvested the lettuce twice so far and I may get another harvest in before the hot summer temperatures kick in. I let my herbs flower to provide the bees w/ some extra nourishment.  The herbs are growing so well this year that I’ve had to thin out some of the plants. The cooler, wetter weather St. Louis is currently experiencing has not negatively impacted any plants as of yet. I’ll take this weather over the extremely dry and hot weather of last year!

The following photos were taken on June 14th:

 So far, so good! Thank you Mother Nature!!
