Garden {Wordless Wednesday 7/6}

Somewhat "Wordless" Wednesday... my garden at the half-way point. Completely organic - I can't believe it hasn't been eaten up more than this!
Oh, and there's a surprise at the end!

Oregano - after I've already harvested and dried from it twice!

My friend, Fred. In the mornings, while I sip my morning coffee, I watch him pluck mosquitoes from the undersides of leaves for his breakfast.

Uh... yeah, peas!

After releasing our ladybugs, they made their home in my radishes. They laid a ton of eggs. I just didn't have the heart to pull them up. So, now we have flowers!

Beets for hubby (yuck!) Not doing very well... it was planted in May!

First flower from our Heirloom German Striped Tomato. Can't wait to see how it tastes. Check out how fuzzy this plant is!

Little Guy's favorite - mint. He loves plucking off a leaf and chewing it up - especially when we have guests over. Someone will almost always ask if he's eating something poisonous.

Um, OK... yes, grasshoppers eat gardens. BUT, I happen to like them. Plus, I have giant dragonflies that visit daily AND a really cool praying mantis who love to catch them in mid-air. Circle of life, food chain, and all that stuff, right?
HaHa... When you're gardening, sometimes you just gotta go. We live in a second floor apartment, so getting to the potty on time doesn't always work. Daddy and Little Guy picked out an emergency potty area for those just-in-case times! (And, he's a guy. I think that the need to pee outside is in their genes!)

Great pictures. Do you hang your oregano to dry and use later?
Beets, ick.
Oh, I love how mint spreads. We had some chocolate mint at our old place, it was every where!
