This past weekend was a long weekend for us. With July 1st, our nations birthday, falling on Sunday we had Monday off. We were able to enjoy a couple days in the country. My Handyman had a nerve block in his back 5 days prior to this picture, so we didn’t have any projects planned for this weekend. But the lawn always has to be mowed, and he finds it impossible to relax before he gets that job out of the way.
My father-in-law sells the hay off his farmland to another farmer. This farmer was busy cutting hay all around our vegetable garden. I like when the hay is high. As the breeze passes over, it would seem almost like it is waving at us.
Please forgive me as I gush over these vegetables. We are loving our garden. It has been many years since we have had a garden, and NEVER has it grown this well. Please grab a cold drink and come on a tour with me.
Romaine lettuce needing to be thinned out
My Handyman already thinned out the carrots.
Do you like Beet greens?
I’ve been thinning them out and giving them to
family and friends who stop by.
I definitely need to thin some more.
I’m going to cook some this week
for the first time, ever!!
I planted regular onions, Spanish onions, and bunching onions.
The bunching onions are the ones with the blossom buds.
Lots of pea blossoms
and pods too!!
I spy a broccoli head starting.
It seems just yesterday I planted broccoli seed
in trays and sat them in my dining room window.
Green pepper buds
We planted a row of yellow beans, and a row of green beans.
I am very impatiently waiting for some blossoms on these plants.
This row of potatoes belongs exclusively to My Handyman.
I’m not sure what we will do with him if they aren’t successful.
He’s quite excited about them.
I have some great plans for these tomatoes…
keep your fingers crossed for me!
I noticed a few blossoms starting.
This is the very beginning of pumpkin vines.
I have three zucchini plants.
My intention is to use them when they are very small.
No baseball bats for me.
If I become overrun with them,
“It’s ok to compost zucchini.”
A little cabbage starting.
Anyone ever eaten turnip greens?
I’m not very brave when it comes to cooked greens.
Thus my comment above on beet greens.
Thank you for visiting with me in the garden today.
I have enjoyed our time together.
Our Canada Day came to a close beside this fire.
