I hardly remember planting my raised vegetable garden, it was so long ago now.
I planted a lot of seeds this year and then also picked up a few plants at the garden center.
I usually start my plants in the house in early April, but I did not do that this year,
everything was started outdoors, right in the raised garden.
I planted seeds for Iceberg Lettuce, which I forgot I had done.
The Iceberg Lettuce is in the front, on the right, in this garden.
That lettuce has grown from seeds planted in late April, it has done really well.
All of the Butterhead Lettuce in the back returned from last year,
I did not plant any of that this year.
It is delicious and makes a really nice salad, I was surprised to see it come back.
In this garden, I planted Cucumber Seeds along the back and Yellow Squash seeds in the front.
The Tomato Plant on the right I purchased at our garden center.
These pictures were taken on May 30th and I am happy with the progress.
These herbs will attract my Black Swallowtail Butterflies,
I will also enjoy them in my cooking.
The hubs planted 3 large packs of Flower Mix Seeds (seen below) here,
these plants are suppose to attract Butterflies.
It just looks like a bunch of weeds but I have my fingers crossed for flowers.
The hubs planted 6 flats of Vincas,
around the mailbox post, the birdhouse and all around the front of the center garden,
in the front of the house.
You can get a peak of the center garden, in the right corner of this picture.
That garden is difficult to photograph.
The hubs made this garden smaller by adding sod on either side of the Vincas.
I was not in agreement with that, but he felt the garden was too big and needed to be smaller.
