Strolling through the garden

The hydrangeas are in full bloom, they have come a long way since they were planted in 07.
Die Hortensien sind in voller Bluete, die Buesche sind seit 07 ganz schoen gewachsen.Nadia's first blooming sunflower. She was so excited about this one.
Nadia's erste Sonnenblume blueht. Sie hat sich total darueber gefreut.
I was excited to see the first little pepper.
Ich habe mich gefreut die erste kleine Paprika im Garten zu sehen.
Tomatoes
Tomaten
Swiss chard
Mangold
I ripped out all the potato plants which was not an easy thing for me to do. :-( Now what do I do? Do I leave the bed, till it, can I replant something else or does it need to be left alone for a while?
Obwohl es mir total schwer gefallen ist, habe ich alle Kartoffelpflanzen herausgerissen. :-( Was mache ich jetzt? Lasse ich das Beet brach liegen, kann ich etwas neues anpflanzen, soll ich es umgraben?
See the tunnel this little guy made? As long as they stay outside (and are not black widows) I'm ok with spiders in the garden.
Seht ihr den Tunnel den die Spinne gemacht hat? Solange es keine schwarzen Witwen sind und sie im Garten bleiben, machen mir Spinnen nichts aus.
Blackberries are starting to ripen.
Brombeeren werden langsam reif.
A little forest of green onions.
Ein kleiner Wald aus Fruehlingszwiebeln.
The beans are growing nicely.
Den Bohnen scheint es gut zu gehen.
Zucchini! Yum!
Zucchini! Lecker!
Little squashes are starting to form. The seeds were given to me at the stocking stuffer swap, so I'm excited to see what kind of squash it is going to be.
Der Squash faengt auch an und waechst. Da ich die Samen an Weihnachten zum stocking stuffer swap bekommen habe, bin ich mal gespannt was fuer ein Squash es ist.
While outside, I harvested a bunch of herbs. Sage, thyme, chives, mint and oregano.
Waehrend ich draussen war, habe ich gleich mal verschiedene Kraeuter geerntet. Salbei, Thymian, Schnittlauch, Pfefferminze und Oregano.

  5. Love your garden! Nadia picked a beautiful flower to grow, the honeybees love sunflowers and their smiling faces. Hydrangeas are a favorite of mine, and I love the blue. Today I bought two of them at Aldis, yes Aldis!, and they bloom from either pink or blue to green and then to red. We will see what they will do in my soil!
    My garden is so far behind, but growing. Now that we have moved it some, and all I need to do is move the strawberry plants. I'm still thinking about the lavender bushes, but they will have to wait until fall I believe.
    I'm sure with all your goodies growing you will have a great tasting supper!
    Liebe grusse,

    Oh! P.S. You could have chickens, just in a small coop, maybe a few hens.

  10. Huhu Anke!
    Vielen Dank für Dein Kommentar zu meinem Yarn Along =) Euer Garten sieht ja toll aus, da lässt sich die Hitze doch gleich besser ertragen, oder? Irgendwann haben wir sowas tolles hoffentlich auch mal, eigenes Gemüse ernten, auf dem Rasen liegen...im Moment träumen wir noch davon. Wir könnten zwar runter gehen und uns zu den Schwiegereltern in den Garten setzen, aber das ist irgendwie nicht dasselbe =)

    LG,
    Maike
