Several of you have requested to see how our garden is growing this year. Therefore, I braved the millions of mosquitoes and took several shots of our glorious soil with green things growing out of it.
I can take absolutely NO credit this year for how the garden looks. Matt has worked VERY hard and keeping the weeds under control and everything looks so, so pretty.
I basically started on one end of the house and went all the way around the back to the other side taking pictures. Yes, we have more than one garden spot. If it has the capability to grow things (and it isn’t an area used regularly to kick soccer balls), it has been tilled and it shall bear fruit. Well, vegetables as the case may be.
Here we have several tomato plants and some pepper plants.
Looks like the beginnings of salsa, wouldn’t you think?
Ah, more tomato plants. Yes, there will be many tomatoes. We are not afraid.
Ooh, the first fruits. Vegetables. Wait. Tomatoes are a fruit.
We planted the corn in two stages so that it would be ready at two different times.
The first round is just a bit taller than me. We’re so proud.
Here are more pepper plants growing in the raised garden bed Matt made last year.
Our yard is really not crooked. I just took a crooked picture.
Here’s our little garden of potatoes. See all the blossoms?
That means there are lots of french fries growing underground.
Beside the potato plot grows our beloved peach tree.
There are only a few peaches on it, so this year we will be mooching peaches off of others if possible.
The tree sure looks pretty though.
And last but not least, the green beans. Four long rows of green beans. And look:
I picked a whole bowlful on Tuesday!!
When I steamed some that night, I thought perhaps I was in heaven.
And then we may or may not have steamed more of them for breakfast this morning. Who could resist?
