More lettuce from the garden!  I am afraid that this lettuce will run out before the next planting is large enough to use!



More raspberries too.  It seems we have more smaller ones this year.  I don't know why that would be as we have had quite a bit of rain and I thought raspberries liked water.



I snitched a few potatoes from under the plant.  I think these look a little larger than they actually are!



Sue pulled out my beets and planted a few beans.  Don't know what I would do without her help!  I don't have enough energy to make pickled beets this year so the neighbor lady took them and is going to can them.



We bought 20 lbs of blueberries for the freezer.  I have two tiny bushes but they don't seem to grow or do well.  My soil is not acid enough.



I have an unwanted visitor in my garden!  He is cute but not cute in my garden!  Can't seem to get him out.  Coco runs around barking and having fits but he knows he is safe if he runs in my garden as it has a fence around it to keep Coco out!



My Garden Angel hanging on the kitchen wall that I have had for years.



We celebrated Gracie's 8th birthday today!  She had a water party and fun was had!  Melissa made the cake.  There must be some mistake!  She can't be 8 already!

My blueberries don't do all that well either. This year I decided to buy some sulfur to lower the pH. I hope it works because I love blueberries.

Hi Daphne, I would love to have my own blueberries too. Maybe I should try some sulfur. Do you put it on in the spring or fall or both? Nancy

I am so jealous of those raspberries! I was hoping that the canes I planted this spring would give me a few berries this fall - a bit of a preview of next year - but they aren't growing as fast as I would have liked, so I think that chances of that are fairly slim.

What a great cake - love the kit kat border!

Hi Nancy! The lettuces look yummy! Blueberries are kind of hard to grow, but the ones I have planted in the flower bed under heavy mulch are producing nicely. Plus, as they grow older, they produce more. I hope you'll have a nice harvest next year! Nice potatoes! I need to see if I have any! Oh what pretty beets! I'm so sorry you haven't been feeling well! You sure do have a nice friend to help you out! That's a lot of blueberries! I hope your freezer will hold them all! We have our share of bunnies too, but thankfully they haven't gotten into the garden! The party looks like such fun! And the cake is so cute! Good job Melissa! Thanks for sharing and get well soon! Blessings from Bama!

Hi Margaret, I am sorry your raspberries are not producing soon enough for you!! I know the feeling! Melissa made the cake and I think she did a good job. Nancy

Hi Felecia, Thanks! I haven't decided if I will give up on the blueberries or not yet! You are always so positive and encouraging! Melissa made the cake and I think she did a good job. I think it will most likely be a long haul to get well. Looks like I have Lyme. Nancy

Gracie is very pretty. Your fruits and vegetables look delicious. I don't think I have ever tasted a raspberry. They look so pretty.

Leigh said...

Everything looks so good, but especially your raspberries. My first year plants gave me a taste, but that was about it. Like your blueberries, they're coming along.

What lovely looking produce! And lovely looking Gracie too! Too bad about the rabbit. Just a single one can do so much damage in one night.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Henny Penny, Thank you! I can't hardly believe that you have never tasted a raspberry! You don't know what you are missing!! Hope you get to taste one soon. Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Leigh, Thanks! I don't know. I would like to hope by blueberries were coming along but it does look sort of hopeless! At least it looks like you will eventually get raspberries! Nancy

Hi Granny Marigold, Thanks! We still have not been able to get that little rabbit out of our yard but she doesn't seem to be eating anything in the garden. Wonder what she is living on? She thinks that is her home! Nancy

Vicki said...

Happy Birthday to Gracie!! Love the cake! Your garden veggies look really nice. I hope the rabbit will not eat too many. Your guardian angel is cute! Have a great week! :)Vicki

Hi Vicki, Thanks! The rabbit is still in my garden! Thinks he owns it. Not very big yet but we have not been able to catch him with the cage we borrowed. You have a great week too! Nancy
