Garden Update

Summer has officially arrived in the Parkallen Home Garden. With summer comes a garden full of fresh veggies. I wanted to give you a little update on how the plants are doing so far this summer.

The strawberry plant is starting to flower nicely.

DSC05389We have a bush full of chives that are in full bloom.

DSC05392The tomato box is getting getting big and strong, and is also starting to flower.

DSC05401The cauliflower has a bulb that has started to grow.

DSC05398The pepper plant is looking nice and happy.

DSC05396Even Hubbard is starting to grow big and strong.

DSC05399Justin added a trellis to the peas, and they are catching on quite nicely.

DSC05393The zucchinis are also flowering and starting to grow some stems.

All in all, the garden boxes were a fantastic idea. The soil is draining well, and the plants are thriving! I am getting so excited to head into the garden to collect veggies for dinner. I would say we are only a few weeks away from that! Stay tuned for more gardening adventures in our Parkallen Home Garden.
