Little did we know when we started this...that a garden is a work in progress. There is always something to do. I've been tying up my peas so they climb, we've put a trellis up for the cucumber plants, each of the tomatoe plants has it's own climbing cage, the celery has to be banded and the stalks covered so it fades in color(they are bright green right now), the corn is framed with netting so it won't fall over in the wind and the strawberries have their netted cover. The hubby and I are enjoying our new hobby and appreciate the farmers and their effort put into creating a crop to harvest. This garden will by no means be cheaper than buying what we are growing but it sure is enjoyable and we are learning so much about the food we eat. It was another beautiful day...we both ate lunch on the patio and enjoyed looking at our garden. Funny how simple things can be so enjoyable!
This is my little friend who watches over the garden for me!
Our first full head of lettuce...we've had fresh lettuce now for a month. It really does taste good right out of the garden.
Our corn is about 4 feet tall and getting taller everyday!
Zucchini squash...Did you know that each zucchini has a blossom on the end of it? I didn't!
Bell peppers are coming right along!!
And the sweet peas remind me of my Uncle Ralph. I'd steal his from his garden when I visited as a girl. They were so good! He'd be impressed!
That's my excitement for the day! Have a good weekend!
