Summer Solstice Update

Since today is the first day of summer, I thought I would do an update on our patio garden. Obstacles so far have been finding the right amount of light and water, staking our plants, and keeping the aphids off the leaves with an organic pest repellent. Here are some pics I took tonight.

Our early producing tomato has already given us one ripe red tomato and more are on the way!

Our herbs are doing great in their little box! We've used the thyme with vegetables, basil in pasta, and the parsley in just about everything.

Our yellow pear variety has one that looks about ready to become part of a dinner salad.

Here's our late bloomer which should really kick in some time next month. The yellow bell pepper on the right also hasn't seen much action yet.

We love our garden so much, we couldn't help but expand it this weekend. Left to right: cool new succulent plant, sage, and a new rosemary plant.
