I am so excited today, we are getting some much needed rain! We are 7 inches low for our yearly water level and with my big garden frankly I needed a break from watering everything all day long! lol My awesome neighbor brought me about 40 smaller hostas yesterday when she was thinning hers and I got them all planted ready for the rain to water them in.
So far today I a have been really productive! yesterday wasn't a good day for me at all! We are expecting guests for supper so here is a photo of the table so far
The garden is doing very well and I am going to share some photos hubby took and then head to my studio to create the card for tomorrows card class. I have a lot of photos so I made them small on purpose, just click on the photo to see it full size.
I have Brandywine Heirloom tomatos in 2 beds like this about 20 in a bed
We have Gnome George who likes to help but sleeps a lot too and he moves around the garden so we never know where he will be next!
This is a panoramic shot he took of the entire garden- fun but could make you seasick looking at it lolol
This bed has cucumbers in the first part of this will grow up and then in the back are my 9 cherry tomatos- I have over 100 tomato plants this year and selling the 40
EXTRA plants for $1.00 each as I ran out of room! they are about 4-5 inches tall.
We are really enjoying the spinach and lettuce this spring, now if the radishes would just catch up! I planted them but I guess the seed was bad and had to replant. they are doing fine now but not ready to eat yet.
Peas are blooming and setting so in a week we will be eating fresh peas on our salads or right from the plant! nom nom nom
I have an edible flower bed this year but they are just barely coming up through the dirt. I am really happy with the garden as all the permanent beds are finally "in". Now we will begin with rocking the walk ways and that will be a huge job! We have to put in 4x4's between the beds to keep the gravel from washing and under it we have to put in landscape fabric to keep the weeds down. Sure will be glad when that project is all over with!
Above photos broccoli and peas and photo below is the zucchini I grew under the hoop house . We have peppers in the back of the bed now- saturday we took the plastic off as it was so very hot and today its 55- lol should have left it on I guess! Who knows from day to day here!
Well that is all I will bore you with today. I am going to be preserving all the bounty it brings and my potatoes are up 2 ft tall I thought I would miss the tater bugs this early but nope they found me and I have to pick them off and put them in a water mixture I made so they die die die!
now to catch that dratted vole family.............................
Have a great day! Thanks for sharing my fun by stopping in! Tomorrow I will share the Card of the month.
