Gardening photo of the week

Like all gardeners, we love taking a walk through the garden in the morning. Well, really at any time of day.

And we have so many photos of not only herbs and vegetables but also seedlings, hot peppers, beefsteak tomatoes, spiders, herbs, ghost peppers, pollinators, bee-imposters, aphids, white flies, leaf miners, and the list goes on.

The idea for this section was born in June 2022. The plan is to also work backward to include the entire year of 2022. January through May will however not be published in a per-week format.
