The Garden

My garden is ever changing. It's exciting to see how things change daily, sometimes hourly. So hard to keep up with, let alone keep up and take photos and blog. So some highlights.

We harvested Kale for the second time. We froze and dried it. It was all hands on deck for this one.

Our peach tree died last year, I have never came to terms with it. Well until a few days ago I found a new peach tree on clearance for 12 bucks. Sold! and so I quickly came to terms with it and dug it up and replanted the new tree in it's place. Back to three peach trees.
The new tree. Pretty.
This is one bed of carrots. Oh wish us luck come harvesting time.

I've been harvesting Broccoli off and on. Not tons, need to work on that. 

Seeds of the month finally came. Excited. Radishes are planted.

Cauliflower is nearly ready.
Sunflowers are starting to pop.
Strawberry Blonde
Baby Pumpkins everywhere.
My current front yard photo. Ethan watering the pumpkins there.
This is exciting, I mowed this as the grass was nearly 5 feet tall, took me awhile and a new lawn mower pull cord, but I got this far, still have a ways to go. But do you see this? Do you see 3-4 new beds????? Hubby wanted it clear to get to the compost. BUT he won't keep it mowed, he isn't doing the compost I am! And I shouldn't have to track through 5 foot grass to water my beds!  Oh more carrots in the back ground there. Yeah, again wish us luck there.
Back yard tomatoes, bed is about 30 feet long.
I'm missing a photo. ARRRRR Well I'm missing the cabbage bed so if that photo shows up it's cabbage, turnips, beets, and everything else left over.
This is sorghum and leeks, onions in the small squares.
