What’s in the Garden? – K

Categories: Alphabetical Gardening.

It is time for K on the garden tour and at ABC Wednesday.

The kitchen garden is a big part of my garden.  I grow tomatoes, potatoes, beans, peas and lots more.  My husband made me three plant tables a few years ago and most of the veggies grow in large containers.  These are right by the deck and it is easy to pop out of the kitchen and pick some fresh food for meals. No bending or deep digging required which is good for my old bones.

Kale is one of my favourite veggies and I do grow some in the kitchen garden, but must admit I buy most of it from the veggie stand at the corner of our road.

I use old keys in my garden art.  When made into a key wind chime they make a lovely soft tinkling sound.   I also used old keys to make a stepping stone.

The kestrel comes looking in the garden for prey from time to time.  At first I thought this was a different hawk (sparrow hawk) but thanks to knowledgeable visitors, bird books and research on the internet I now know what to look for in a kestrel.

I needed a K for my alphabet collection and while dismantling an old umbrella stand part of the framing looked just like a K. The railing on a fence looked like a K, well it does to me, how about you?

My flower for K doesn’t grow in the my garden but is a houseplant. The kalanchoe has gorgeous blooms and this particular variety is a calandiva.

For K in my personal alphabet I chose – knitter, knowledgeable, kindred

  1. Lovely post and photos . WOW lots of yummy fresh home grown veggies , I am hoping to do some veggies next year as it has been ages since I have done a veggie garden and I do enjoy fresh veggies , thankfully our neighbor has a huge veggie garden and shares with us , such lovely people they are . Thanks for sharing , Have a good week.

  2. That’s definitely a K in the fence railing. Last year the Husband and I made chimes with our collection. I need to start collection more so I can put them in a stepping stone. I’ve learned to make stones this summer. So much fun! Your container vegetables look happy. I haven’t had much luck growing veggies that way, but then I wasn’t very attentive. Maybe I’ll try again with winter veggies.

  3. How creative you are !
    I will send you a couple of keys to make me something beautiful 🙂 😉

    Have a heartwarming en splendid ABC-Wednes-day / -week
