I figured that it was about time that I give you an update on our backyard happenings! As you know, I absolutely LOVE gardening and growing my own food. Some day I hope to have a few raised beds to grow many of our own fruits and vegetables.
Our garden is in full boom! In the last week I’ve spent countless hours weeding, pruning and moving plants.
The jostaberries are almost ripe!
We are very excited for our heirloom and roma tomatoes to ripen. Although we still have several weeks until the fruit turns a robust red.
The radish, kale, lettuce, parsley and peas have been keeping me busy, producing new veggies every day. I have not purchased greens in a month!
I am a little disappointed in our watermelon plants, which are growing at the base of the trellises pictured above. They really haven’t grown much, although they did bloom last week. I hope to get a couple pieces of fruit, as the boys LOVE watermelon!
So that’s what’s blooming and growing in our garden this year. What’s happening in your neck of the woods?
