Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Wow, your harvests are so nice-looking and plenty. I am so envious, and your photos are marvelous too. I just see that you have this meme, maybe i will be joining in next time, but our seasons are so different that my schedules different too!

I cannot get over all the veggies and oh those figs. I am only dreaming and working on my plans for my veg garden. It won’t get planted out until April, but there will be seeds started in the basement in March.

You have so much! I am so impressed that you have tomatoes, peppers, and lettuce growing all at the same time! Your squashes have really done well, and your figs look great, too. I imagine dinner at your house is wonderful!

Haa! Yes – we eat well 🙂 We are noticing that the fruit is getting expensive here! I have a few small fruit trees so that would be great to have in time to come.

I know I’ve said this before, but both of your gardens confound me. I thought it gets pretty hot in your garden in summer, yet you have plenty of lettuce that hasn’t bolted. You also seem to have very few pests — I don’t see a single hole in those cabbage leaves. So lovely! (So jealous)

Hey Alan – I don’t have a conventional veggie patch – it’s based on companion planting and permaculture. I have little pest (aphids still abound on the Broccoli) I will clean up my patch and show you how I have it set up – more like a jungle. I don’t have rows of pretty veggies – I have chives surrounding the tomatoes and lemon verbena on the edges and corners of the veggie patch to ward off bug-a-boos.

Your harvest looks so delicious. Looking at your tomatoes makes me anxious for when I can grow mine. They look so healthy and red. I have grown fennel but never harvested the seeds…great idea. Thank you for hosting!

Lots of summery goodies to make our mouths water! I always think of red cabbage as a winter crop, it is for me, its even in my post this month. If you like fennel seeds you’d love fennel flowers too, its a real tradition in Italy. I’ve mentioned on my blog how to dry them. Thanks for hosting again, Christina
