Yesterday, we spent the afternoon in the garden. So now I can show you some pictures of how it is looking right now.
Here we have beans, 2 rows green and 2 rows yellow, leeks and roma tomatoes, 1 zucchini plant and marigolds. Plus some sunflowers.
Right to left: you can see a bit of the last row of potatoes (there are 5 rows total), then flowers, onions, more flowers, peppers and corn.
Bit of the corn, then peas, dill and in the bare looking area are some hills of squash.
In the shady area – 1 row of cabbages, 1 row of green beans, (planted at a later date), 2 rows of corn, (also planted at a later date) 2 rows of pickling cukes & heritage tomatoes. Behind the tomatoes is a row of carrots & beets and peppers, then comes the squash patch.
Looking at some lady bugs, that are were on the sunflower.
Peeking over the sunflower, at least for now, it will soon be too tall for him to see over. He will then have to peek from behind it! I’ll have to remember to get a picture of that.
Mommy and baby in the garden
Eating a carrot, can’t get any fresher than that! Dirt and all…. Carrots are not ready yet, but they do need a bit of thining, so I let the children eat some.
More of us picking peas… (my mom and oldest son, you can also see baby sitting on the blanket)
Baby exploring the garden, she was on a blanket, but now that she is crawling, she goes places.
With all of us working, we got the peas shelled in record time and then today we enjoyed them for lunch, Yummy! I enjoy gardening and reaping the harvest. Such rewarding work. We are thankful!
I’m already dreaming about our garden for next year….
