Garden Update!

Beans, beans, the magical fruit!
Yes, my mature side is showing!


from this


to this-
in less than a week!

We're going to get some green beans, if all goes like it has been!

Our itty peas!



Staked  a bazillion tomato plants!
I see tomato sauce, pizza sauce, salsa, etc in our future!


Okra!
Hubby likes it pickled, I like it fried... mmm


Zucchini!
We never seem to tire of eating it!


Hot pepper plant!
We have a ton of these!
I plan to pickle a lot of them and then use the spicy vinegar to make bbq sauce!
That's the only way to make my special recipe, so hot peppers must be grown.


The strawberry plants are growing like mad- we've gotten less than a dozen strawberries, but we've been pinching them back and expect a great show next year!


A row of cucumbers, still small but growing!
I can taste the pickles now!
My late grandmother left 15 recipes and I hope to be able to test them all out!


Mmmmm- Kale!
It's really growing!

Looks amazing! The only thing that's come up in mine are the radishes... so sad. Hopefully things are just taking their time... we'll see!

Haha! I have to admit that I tried to teach Emmy the beans song the other night. I was trying to get her to eat Crowder Peas and thought a little potty humor might make her a fan, but it didn't work.
