I will start off today with a picture of Swiss Chard. I am trying to learn to like it!!!!!! LOL
Radishes, Pak Choi and Lettuce!! I was going to apologize today for always posting lettuce but after seeing the price of yucky head lettuce in the store I will post it proudly!
We are happy to finally start harvesting some raspberries! Pulled another cabbage and three carrots to make more cole slaw.
My poor aloe plant! I dumped it over on the floor one day. What a mess!!!!!
I made chocolate chip cookies for my "wonderful gardener"!
These are my carrot boxes on the deck. The tops are quite tall but from the cabbage post you can see the carrots are not real big.
Some of the family came over for the 4th. Melissa made this pretty and yummy dessert!
Our kids dug out our old rose bush. We thought maybe it had poison ivy in it and couldn't get it out. We just recently planted this one. It is a Rose Blaze Improved-med red climber. I think it will show up well on the arbor.
Here are my two elderberry bushes in the side yard. I think they are so pretty but my two mowers, hubby and daughter, are complaining the branches are in the way so guess this fall I will have to cut it down some!
I picked a little bouquet of yarrow and set it on a yellow and white doily that my mother had crocheted. A little sunshine in the kitchen!
These are my green beans. I thought they only got about 12 inches tall but these are squashed by my screen cover which is taller than 12 inches! It is about 18 inches tall. I found out that green beans are self pollinating but will I still get beans if they are so squashed in height? If I take the cover off the beetles and Coco will get them! I do have a dilemma!!!!
I have three little blueberry bushes but this is the only one that has a few blueberries on it. I am hoping they will get ripe and I will get them before the birds! It is seeming to take forever for them to ripen!!
I plead guilty! I thought I was planting my tomato plants farther apart this year but as you can see I can't even get between them to pick the tomatoes! There are some blossoms though.
The cucumbers are climbing the trellis! Hurry, hurry!!!
See all the little cherry tomatoes! They are planted in five gallon pails. Do veggies seem slower to ripen this year to you or is it just me?
I have a little white box so have lettuce growing in it. Still good to harvest!
A small patch of Kale. I have used a little but haven't learned to love Kale either yet!
These two green pepper plants in the tote look lush but haven't done much yet to produce peppers!
On the other hand, this sad small plant has one green pepper on it! I will never figure things out!
The blackberry bushes have a lot of green berries on them even though that bad storm blew them over!
My last picture but not very nice to leave you with this yucky one in your mind! I am doing beetle bug duty and "tonking" them into a pail with soap and water! They are really liking my little sweet cherry tree a lot and chewing the leaves to pieces. I don't even feel guilty doing this to them! Happy Gardening!!
