A Walk Through My Garden

I love gardening. Here are some shots I’ve taken over the last few years of things in my garden. First up are bell pepper blooms (yes, that’s an ant on it πŸ˜‚) and fruit:

McMahon’s Texas Bird hot peppers – they are like little balls of fire!

I’ve never had a ghost pepper before; I’ve been told it’s hotter than habanero peppers. o_O It just turned red (and I haven’t even planted it yet!) and I’m excited to see what it’s like!

The blueberries are slowly ripening:

Eggplant bloom (the white stuff on the stalk is some insecticide; I had problems with someone other than me eating my eggplant) and fruit:

Tomatillo Gigante Verde blooms (Spanish giant green tomatillos; they are great for salsa! I’m not growing them this year; I grew them a couple of years ago and still have sealed jars of salsa left πŸ˜‚):

Tomato blooms and not yet ripe fruit:

Okra bloom:

Squash blooms (with a bonus moth!):

Cucumber bloom:

My plants this year are coming along. I already have eggplant, tomatoes and peppers slowly growing on the plants. 😍 Unfortunately, when I was weeding, I came across some poison oak… but I’m trying to think of the fruits and veggies I get to pick in the fall and how it will be worth the itching I have now! No pain, no gain, right? πŸ˜‚

  1. Lovely photos! I’m enjoying the time in my garden as well. It’s not large – as I live in a townhouse, but I love it! A small patch of wildflowers this year, lots of herbs, (Peppermint, Parsley, Anise Hyssop, Bee Balm, Oregano, Marjoram, Basil – cinnamon, regular, and purple, Cilantro, Thyme – lemon and regular), Cherry and Beef Steak Tomatoes (one each), and lettuce! I love watching each grow – each so different. God is an amazing creator!

  2. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I loved this one, not sure how I missed it! I have a “sensitive stomach” however, so I’m not sure how the hot peppers would do for me. I’d probably hurt myself!…hehe. Do you like the spicy stuff?
