I can't believe that we are eating peaches from our yard!!! "Wonderful Gardener" is amazed and so am I! They don't look so good but when I peel and cut them up they are so very tasty!!! I have more than this now. We have been eating them right along but I may have to freeze a little container or two!!
Instead of the leaning tower this is our leaning peach tree LIMB! The main root died but the limb grew out from it. We will try to straighten it a little with a stake but it is pretty firmly standing! I am learning how to take care of my peach tree limb and come early spring I will be out there with my organic spray! I can not put anything around the roots as I have learned from Coco getting sick that she will probably eat it!
My poor sad little sweet cherry tree! The beetles really demolished the leaves this past year. I am hoping that it makes it!
March 3lst I started this eggplant from seed that Vinnie's Veggies had given me. It is in the garden now but only this big. Do you think it will be large enough to harvest by the time we get our first frost in October? We got our first frost last year October 8th. Who knows when it will be this year! It is in the 90's today and still dry. I don't know anything about eggplant. How large has it got to be before I pick it??????
I only took one picture of the harvest this week. It is trickling in but I think I will have to buy lettuce this week. Not happy about that! I have some planted but it won't be ready for quite awhile and it is just too hot yet to plant more. I couldn't believe how large those two green peppers are on each end. And here I thought I wouldn't get any peppers from my plants this year! Oh, impatient me of little faith!!!!
See this big thing on my asparagus!! I think it is a praying mantis.
A few more strawberries. I keep saying they are about done but then we get a few more, but now I really do think they are about done. Sure has been nice!
I accidentally broke a branch off from my cherry tomato plant earlier. I stuck it in the ground and it grew which is surprising to me! Now I am harvesting cherry tomatoes from it! My duty as laundry lady is calling so you all have a wonderful harvest this week!!!
