i LOVE this time of year. i have come to love gardening....vegetable gardening. i am starting to appreciate flower gardening. i think i appreciate the vegetable gardening better as it feeds my family...the payoff is better. dont get me wrong, i love beautiful flowers, but i love a ripe garden tomato better.
so no pictures of the garden yet but this year it is slammed full:
4 varieties of garden beans
2 types of green beans
5 different varieties of sweet corn (3 heirloom/2 hybrid)
10 different variety of tomatoes (about 36 plants so far, but i have 36 more still sprouting & growing...staggering my harvest)
watermelon (this year i have some from Africa & some Armenian variety of melons...all heirloom)
lettuce (2 varieties)
it's so exciting!!! i actually ran out of room in the garden. i still want to do some radishes & some turnips, but those can wait until the squash & zucchini are done for the year. then i can put those in the ground.
i still didnt get to do as much as i wanted to. but i'm excited.
i did what i could. i started seeds...patiently attended them...planted them. now i trust that God will be faithful to grow it all. He is so good.
and this is a funny picture of my beautiful Essie. she is so much fun!
