The Veggie Patch

Summer finds me spending long hours in my modest, but productive, veggie patch.

The patch produces a variety of vegetables including lettuce, spinach, cabbages, beets, parsnips, summer and winter squash, peas, pole beans, tomatoes, eggplants and peppers. I also grow annual and biennial culinary herbs such as basil, parsley, cilantro, and garlic. Perennial herbs such as sage, thyme, and oregano are located in their own garden outside of the veggie patch.

Below are some photos of the wildlife visitors that frequent the garden area.
