My Colorado Garden

Last week I posted some pics from my backyard veggie garden. I’m also growing some herbs and other things in the front yard. The whole yard (front and back) gets tons of sun so things seem to grow well!

Cat grass, various herbs, bell peppers, and jasmine. I'll bring the jasmine inside and try to grow it as a houseplant at the end of the summer.

The bell pepper plants are small but they both have peppers on them!

I just bought these fuschias so hopefully they'll grow well here.

Some of the things we collected from the ice house when they demolished it.

Not sure what we're going to do with these chairs. Maybe fix and paint them or maybe put them togther and make a love seat.

We have sprinklers but they don't work. That's a project for next summer. Meanwhile we have wild purslane all over the front yard. I also planted some sunflower seeds. They're supposed to get to 5 or 6 feet tall, so that will be pretty if it works out.
