Good things are happening in the garden! The other day I pulled out the spent veggies in one of the raised beds and added some compost. This weekend, my hubby is going to make some frames to support the necessary chicken wire barrier. Hopefully, this will make it much more attractive. When he has them made, I will then put down my seeds. I plan to plant spinach, kale, garlic, onions, mesculin, brussel sprouts, parsley, raddishes, beets and carrots. I am so excited!
Some things in the other bed are still producing, so I haven't yet pulled them out.
An okra flower:
The peppers are looking good and some are even starting to turn red!
Once this bed is finished, I will clear it and make way for broccoli, peas and probably more greens :)
Here is a fun picture of what happens to a tomatillo when the ants find it....
We have been consistently enjoying harvests from our garden. Its so fun to go out before dinner and pick some yummies to come up with something with for dinner! Healthy, yummy and cheap! Gotta love it!
Beet Greens, Patty Pan Squash and Tomatillos:
The much anticipated giant Cherokee Purple Heirloom ready for eatin':
Okra, Kohlrabi, tomatoes, patty pan squash, eggplant, spinach and tomatillos!
We had a busy weekend here at soapHOUSE! And, I spent a majority of it in the garden...as usual :) Pretty much worked on my usual chores: creek cleanout, weeding, deadheading, etc. I finally decided to give up on my zukes that the squash borers got to. So, I pulled them out and put in carrot seeds in their place. Hopefully they will do something! I also got a good shot of the first white eggplant to show:
I am so excited and hope he makes it to maturity! I also got a shot of a fully ripe tomatillo right before I picked him and ate em!
I also got the new berm ready for pinestraw. Once I get that...I will plant the little maple. Can't wait!
Here are some more moments captured along the way:
My new pink coreopsis:
Found this guy on a pepper leaf...i have no idea what he is and I am hoping he is a beneficial:
