I fully expect to be the only one who reads this blog. It’s true. I don’t have a lot to say about a lot of things. I would like to start keeping track of the things that go on around the house and with the family through out the year though. It really is meant to be a personal blog for me but if anyone else finds it entertaining then that’s a win too. I really think I have to start looking at it that way if I want to actually keep up with this thing.
Today I will show you what is going on around the garden. The rest of the week we will do some updates on the kids, the kitchen, and the house.
In the Garden:
I have the garden up and going. Sort of. The new puppy has dug most of it up but what made it is actually doing farely well. Basil is barely hanging on but my pepper plants and tomato plants are doing well and even have little veggies growing on them. I have lots of squash and pumpkins ready to go out to the garden in the next week.
So I totally forgot to mark my plants! I think this next picture are my mouse mellons. They are tasty little cucumbers that look like tiny watermellons. I can’t wait till we have some so I can show you pictures.
We have peas starting to flower and I have actually already found a few out there. My plants are not growing as tall as they did last year but we have had so much rain that I’m surprised that anything is making it at all.
My lettuce and boc choi have not faired well in the hail but still taste great. I have had a few bug problems but for the most part everything is healthy and happy.
For the frist time ever I tried broccoli. It did great…we didn’t eat it. It makes me so sad but we were so busy when it was ready and the next thing I knew it was flowering. I am going to try it again in the fall.
This WAS my beautiful, huge rosemarry bush. Then Nola the new puppy decided that it is a great place to roll around. She always smells wonderful but the plant is looking really shabby.
Finally this is my sage which is still doing great. Apparently the puppy doesn’t like the smell of it.
This isn’t everything we have growing but it is a lot of it and soon more plants will be out as well.
