Our Garden

This is our little corner of country living (please don't look at how yellow the lawn is -- I over-fertilized).



Currently the harvest is good. We're pulling spaghetti squash off the vine in handfuls, the strawberries are so thick we're needing to pull every other plant out of the ground, the corn is on the brink of picking, the tomato plants are heavy with bulbous green melons, and I have no idea how I can possibly eat any more zucchini.

There have also been a few surprises along the way: despite Charlie mangling all our onion plants, they've actually produced quite well. Another addition we found, as we pulled out our pea plants, is that we've got some potato leftovers from last year. Sah-Weet!




Anyways, anyone in the neighborhood who wants tomatoes, give it another week or two and we'll have more than we can handle... Big boys, early girls, cherry and roma varieties.

Now it is my turn to say "awwww I wish you lived closer" so I can partake of your bountiful harvest. Or at least give me a few tips on how to make my garden grow. I am just hoping for some tomatoes and pumpkins. Anything else is just a bonus. Maybe I should water. Does that help?

Your garden is AWESOME! Especially with how expensive produce has become. I'm jealous.

Your garden is awesome! I am so impressed! It makes me want to try new veggies next year. I have three tomato plants and they have SO MANY green tomatoes. I am going to have to make salsa or something!
