Wordless Wednesday – My untidy veggie garden

by Rita H. Azar on January 22, 2013

In my untidy veggie garden…

There are some tomato plants;


Mint spreading everywhere;


A little bit of basil;


And a big bush of zucchini.


I really should do some gardening and clean up, shouldn’t I?!

Do you have a veggie garden?  What veggies do you have in it?  Is it untidy like mine?

Linking this post with Trish over at My little drummer boys and with Bree over at Twinkle in the Eye for Wordless Wednesday.

Don’t worry mine looks straggly at the moment – I think it’s just the heat and dry. My tomato plants are dying off, they look really terrible but there are still tomatoes on them so I’ll leave them in!

Beautiful garden that you have. Unfortunately for us, we have no garden now because it is 58 degrees Celsius under zero.

Hahaha! Too cold! But, you’ll see, summer will be back in a flash!

I do have a little potted veggie garden and it is probably the most success I have had with gardening. At the moment, I am growing mint, basil, tomatoes, coriander, chillies and strawberries. Love your mint btw :)


Rita Azar January 28, 2013 at 2:08 am

That’s great Sabeen! Yum strawberries!

mmmm mine is just full of weeds.. not vegetables :(

Ahh mint, it takes over the world right? Put it in a pot – that’s my suggestion to help a bit x


Rita Azar January 28, 2013 at 2:12 am

Thanks Emily! That’s a good idea!

Hi Rita, I have tried a few times to start a veggie garden but I always forget about them once the novelty wears off!!


Trish MLDB January 23, 2013 at 3:44 am

Rita mine has died from the baking heat . It needs a total overhaul too.
Thanks for linking up

Oh, to even have a garden!!! Love how you’re growing basil! Herbs always die on me :(

I didn’t plant a veggie garden this year. I usually do it at the end of the school year. I figured with the heat wave it would all die. I am missing not having one though – think I might just wait and plant next school holidays and have a winter one.


Rita Azar January 28, 2013 at 2:13 am

I love the idea of a winter garden!

Ours needs to be overhauled, bit too hot at the moment. Looks like you’re still getting lots out of yours.


Rita Azar January 28, 2013 at 2:14 am

The next day, I found a huge zucchini and two tomatoes! I was very excited!

At least you have a veggie garden and the veggies are still growing – you are one up on me!


C J January 23, 2013 at 6:12 am

*sigh* I really need to get back in and do ours again! It’s been a little hot here and everything has died… except the rosemary, the basil and the mint. :) x


Rita Azar January 28, 2013 at 3:02 am

I love herbs in the garden!

Mint is just one of those herbs that is always out of control! Always! x


Rita Azar January 28, 2013 at 2:21 am

So true!

You have a lovely small garden. I like plants in my backyard. I plant tomatoes, parsley and aromatics herbs. Especially mint because I use it in winter time when it is dry.


Claudia January 25, 2013 at 3:31 am

We all like a lot tomatoes and cucumber plants in our backyard. My kids love to pick them themselves. It’s a routine we have for everyday in the summer.


Rita Azar January 28, 2013 at 2:22 am

Having a garden is a lovely tradition to share with the kids!


Alarna Rose Gray January 27, 2013 at 11:27 pm

Rita, if this is untidy, I really shouldn’t tell you about mine! My tiny patch of garden is tricky, because it is in shade for most of the year. I had various bouts of enthusiasm, which have now given way to a halfhearted attempt to keep a few herbs alive. Not much of a green thumb, I should say. You’re doing well :)


Rita Azar January 28, 2013 at 2:24 am

Thanks Alarna! It’s tricky if there is always shade… Mine gets a lot of sun and I try to water it as much as I can. It’s actually the only thing I do!


Nancy January 30, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Hi Rita, we have a little garden. We have mint (lots of them) and different kind of herbs.


Alicia January 31, 2013 at 12:23 pm

i have one good looking tomato plant and the rest is pitiful, I am just no good at growing veggies really!


Rita Azar January 31, 2013 at 10:50 pm

But your roses are amazing Alicia!
