The Right Side

Red White and Blue
Hi Friends, how was your fourth? Ours was festive and fun and spent with dear friends. We spent time down at our hometown parade and came back and had a wonderful non traditional all veggie meal followed by a completely all american favorite dessert of smores. We wrapped it up by watching our town’s fireworks through our tree filtered view in our bedroom. It was a great day.

And it kept me busy, too busy to wrap up the rest of the garden tour, so let’s get that done, shall we? The section we have left is the right side and here’s where it was back in April.
We have a lot of onions in this section. Some are flowering with their long twisty, turny stems.
And others are pulled and left to dry out in the sun.
Basil and Peppers
This bed contains peppers, three types of basil and two eggplants. We’ve been trying our hand at eggplant parmesean and sneaking in pesto into all sorts of dinners. The peppers are far from ripe yet, but they are growing indeed.
Purple Basil
We’ve also got watermelons growing too! Our first successful year at it. Apparently they need a pollenator, so we planted two varieties together, Ali Baba and Sugar Baby, and it seems to have worked. They are growing like crazy:

Thanks for taking a walk with me through the yard!
