Time for a garden update. We finally got a shower yesterday. It helped liven things up some but will still need more rain. Hopefully we will get a few of the isolated showers that are being predicted for the rest of the week. I tend to post pictures of the entire garden so I decided to be a little different a post a shot of each individual “crop”. You can click on each image to see a larger picture.
Squash – Actually getting some blooms
Cabbage – Cannot wait for some refrigerator slaw!!
Corn – the string is to keep the crows out
Green Beans on the left – Okra on the right
Cucumbers – Looks like we will be able to make some pickles
Watermelons are off to a good start
Tomatoes are holding up considering how dry it has been
Lettuce on the left – Pumpkins on the right
Potatoes are starting to bloom
Looks like the onions may do pretty well.
And now for a trip to the orchard
Blueberries are doing well so far
Apple were hurt by the frost but looks like we will have some. The issue will be keeping the deer away.
I planted a couple of peach trees 3 years ago. Last year there were some but the wet weather caused them to rot. I am hoping for a better season this year.
Grapes are looking to be bountiful this year
The pasture is full of wild blackberries. I hope they get to be a decent size this year.
Well, so much for today’s tour. Have a great day.
