My Garden

Yeah, I have got to work on my titles. But, it's kind of late tonight, and I'm not feeling very creative. Hubby and I are leaving on vacation at the butt crack of dawn on Friday morning. YAWN!

This is my first year for a garden. This is also the first year we have taken a summer vacation. What are the odds? Much to my surprise, everything that I planted is now growing. I've even remembered that the purpose of a garden is to harvest it, and we have enjoyed several salads made with our fresh garden lettuce.

My garden has actually progressed much farther than the pictures show, but, you get the idea.  I put in lettuce, spring garlic, sweet peppers, tomatoes, brussel sprouts, red cabbage, white cabbage, broccoli, peas, eggplant, beets, sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, radishes, and onions. I'm also trying strawberries and asparagus.  This morning, I added a row of green beans.

Here are a few pictures.

My tomatoes! Okay, these are not the ones I started from seed, BUT, the plants I did start from seed, are also growing quite nicely. It's very exciting! I'm hoping to make plenty of salsa this fall!

My blueberry plants. They are supposed to have blueberries the first year, but, I'm not so sure.

My little herb garden. (Actually, it still looks about like this, sadly.) My cilantro has greatly disappointed me.

My raspberry plants.

Well, there you have it. I hope to be busy this fall, harvesting, canning and freezing.


  1. What great pictures and updates! I also did pictures of my garden today. Hope you get a chance to go see it.

  2. I'm impressed with your picture skills mama.

  3. It all looks great. Good job. You won't recognize it when you get home.

  4. You have a very well-organised garden! I'm impressed. I need to start mine up again...
