In the Garden

6.23.2012

Thought I would just share how our garden is doing this week. Only thing is I took these pics several days ago so of course it has grown even more.





Beans have grown a lot.

And we have beans!

Okra is coming in and we have already picked some.

Look at the cute little baby watermelons. They are about the size of a baseball now since I took these earlier in the week.



This is a baby cantaloupe. This is my favorite fruit.

Cukes are doing well and Mr. Savvy keeps tying them up.

Now, I am going to do like my friend Kari and use an arrow to point out the cucumber that you might not have seen without it.

Squash are still pouring in.

We have also picked a few tomatoes.

Alrighty, now I need to go cook some of this stuff.

Happy Gardening!

Hopefully our internet will be restored by the time I get up on Sunday so I can quit driving places to have it.
Fingers crossed.

  8. Wow, you guys will be eating good! I sure wish I had a veggie garden. But by the time I got some places dug after the fence was put up, it was a little late to plant them. I'll wait till fall and at least have lettuce, which would be bolting about now anyway.

  10. I'm so jealous of your garden!! I would love to plant one someday, unfortunately I have a dog that would eat it all before I could pick it! I'm thinking I might at least start with a few potted herbs :) Enjoy your fresh produce!!!

  18. I remember a children's book "How Does Your Garden Grow?" and Kim I can see that your garden is growing beautiful. Growing up we always had a garden and I always seemed to be the "picker"....nothing like fresh vegetables and fruits. Also, I want to say again ThAnk YoU and choosing #11 for the beautiful "House of Belonging"Giveaway! Look for a post soon:)

    Sincerely

  19. First off..I know that's a pain with the internet thing! I hate it when that happens! Secondly…your garden looks amazing! I'm so loving mine…we've got beans coming out of our ears and we froze a lot of them today. The tomatoes and okra are doing great and we've been enjoying all 3 of those things nightly! However…how do you keep rabbits out of your squash, cucumbers. watermelons and cantaloupe? It's so frustrating to me! They eat every flower and we've done the chicken wire thing, the owl, the marigolds, etc….oh, marigolds are for deer…anyway…do you have any great tips? So glad your garden is doing so well! Keep us posted on the internet issue!

  20. Garden is looking good. This year we added Brussels sprouts which are doing quite well. Love the beans, just not picking them!

  22. Oh, there is nothing quite as good as fresh picked produce! That baby watermelon is pretty darn cute.

  23. Didn't you say you have never planted a garden before? Should I chalk yours up to beginners luck, because the older I get the worse my garden grows!

  24. Kim, I'm so envious of your okra! We planted ours late this year so I don't have any yet. Picking beans is hard on the back. Next year get Mr. Savvy to build a raised bed to put them in!

  30. If I knew your address, I might be sneaking in the garden in the middle of the night to steal me some loot! Oops!, that would be a bit of a jaunt from California! You've got it going on! Wonderful bounty!
    Cheers!,

  34. I'm so jealous of that wonderful garden! I did just post a tomato and cucumber salad recipe if you're wanting to try something new. Nothing tastes as good as your own homegrown.

  40. Wow! that looks amazing! I so wish I had the patience (or skill) to garden - I'm kind of a plant serial killer. But yours is truly beautiful.
