Garden


I don't think I've posted these ... *lol*

These pictures were taken last weekend of our glorious garden. It has been so wonderful this year with it's bounty! This first shows the melon patch, then potatoes, cucumbers, then tomatoes, peppers & beans.

We pulled the bean plants today .. the zucchini croaked while we were on vacation, thanks to my BIL's overwatering. We were fortunate to have had some great eats from them while they lasted!


There's a watermelon in here ... can you see it? We've got 2 ready to be picked. Since Tom's already picked one & it wasn't quite ready, I'm letting him pick a "really" ripe one.






These are our rows of potatoes - Burpee's "4th of July" Tom's going to check them this week as they're probably ready to be dug up. This is the first time I've grown potatoes - can't wait to see how they've done!




Our cucumbers - struggling a bit with the BIL's overwatering - but they've been very tasty! Tom's going to try dehydrating some - should be an interesting experience!

What a beautiful garden Nancy! You are very lucky to have one so lush. We have a few things planted but not as much as last year. We used to plant potatoes but we get the pototoe beetles and DH refuses to use any pesticides so it's a loosing battle :o(
