My husband usually does our gardening but doesn't water it enough in my opinion. I try to not complain if I don't get out there. But I do have an herb garden with chives and oregano which are NO trouble, and I will be planting basil and parsley soon. As soon as we get back from visiting our son's family and can then water properly.

I do have a garden. Growing right now is garlic, chives, dill, cilantro, raspberries, strawberries, green beans, carrots. I have tomatoes in the greenhouse waiting for warmer weather and will plant peas soon. We also have blueberries, Asian pears and a young Rainier cheery tree.
Go OUTSIDE and PLAY!

If I had a garden, other than a Patio Potted Garden, I'd grow a couple different kinds of corn, some green beans, scarlet runners (a bean), Rainbow Swiss Chard, Rubbarb Swiss Chard, Rubbarb, potatoes, sweet potatoes, bib lettuce, Romaine, fennel, onions, leeks, Brussels Sprouts, Strawberries, grapes, bananas, carrots, pineapple, spinach, tomatoes, oranges, grapefruit, cucumbers, zucchini, butternut squash, acorn squash, Hubbard squash, pumpkin, watermelon, anything I've never seen growing before and looks interesting, and I am sure that is not going to be the end of it, but I'll stop here. We have pretty much grown all of the above in our garden in Puyallup when we lived there. Here we are not allowed gardens, but my neighbor got permission to have one so when we can afford it, we'll be asking if we can have one, to.
This is the week for the DHs medical procedure that may end up as a surgery. That stupid stone was giving him grief last nigh so it hasn't moved like we thought it had. Which means the doctor will have to go deeper and into more dangerous territory. They have a way to handle anything they find, which is good to know, but each problem they find gets more dangerous to fix. So I'm walking on the hot coals in the nerve department already.
Thursday is the day now. Wish me peace and some way of shaking off the stress.
Have a Wonderful week!
