Is something organic if it is shipped across the country? What about the fuel that is used and how that affects our environment, not to mention the freshness of the food and a myriad of other factors. Over the last few years i have been reading everything i can get my hands on to help me answer these and other questions so sit back, relax and explore where my quest has taken me thus far.

How Does Our Garden Grow Part II

How INDEED!  We have had some not so agreeable weather lately which kind of prohibited us from venturing out back, fortunately for the plants, it was mostly rain (and one VERY awful wind storm) and that made them very happy.  Our garden is lush and green, very very green.  We have accumulated a (ahem) few weeds which will be appropriately "whacked" but our other plants are seemingly thriving.  We even have a rose growing on a rose bush that we were not sure was going to make it.  Also, our snail population has been revived!  I still cannot figure out where they get their shells from, very curious.  The tomatoes are looking good, they are about 1 foot tall and our peppers and celery are also doing great!  Also my mint is thriving but sadly our basil "bush" went onto the big green garden in the sky.

 The garden.....just a tad overgrown.

Our beautiful rose, hopefully with more to come.

The darling pansies.

The mint is just going wild!

The other basil and chives are doing just fine.

The front plants are peppers, doing quite well and the pot on the left, 
also peppers, the pot on the right is celery, 
looks like i will have to transplant it to the ground soon!

Last but not least the tomato plant, 
I cannot wait to taste what these 
plants will yield later in the summer.

Well Ta for now, hopefully We will be getting more good weather so that we can continue to enjoy our garden amidst the urban jungle.
