herb pics

Small bee pollinating my echinacae flower.
Are honey bees are busy working hard!! This is some Sumac that they are just crazy about! After this is done blooming I'm hoping they will move down to my herb garden and give it a little help.

Here is the front view of my herb garden. Some of the plants include: basil, pinapple sage, bee balm, St. John's Wort, Greek oregano, shasta daisy, Echinacae, Lavender, and also some blueberry bushes.

Side view of my herb garden. We also have white concord grapes across the rail in the back of my herb garden. They have yet to produce, but we are still hoping they will do something soon. They may not be getting enough sun, so I guess we will have to wait and see.

Garden & Herbs pics

It has been a while since I have posted. We have super busy here!! So much going on with the farm, garden, and not to mention with the kids! I haven't had much spare time lately!! Anyway, now that are garden is finally taking off here are some photos. I also took some pics of the my garden, it seems to be doing much better than last year. I attribute that to our new buzzing friends!! They are very busy pollinating everything around here. I really hope they move on down to the garden as well. Maybe this will be our best year yet?? I'm hoping for that.
