Garden Update

UPDATA time! Look out! I know I did a mini one on Monday so you’ll just have to suffer patiently, you saint, you!

blueberries62The blubberies are doing quite well. Dad built them a little pen because we caught Willow licking all the bushes. Hopefully this will keep the robins, jays and Willow out long enough for some of them to get ripe enough.
starts61Look at these babies do… something. They’re still way too tiny to let outside very often, hopefully it’ll happen before winter. The basil is on the right and sage is one the left.

Look at all these bush beans! Mummy got four Indian Runner beans which are climbing up the poles in the midst of all their bushy cousins. There’s tons of squash coming up on the other side of the boxes. Most of them are seeds I saved when I went through my squash baking faze in the winter (note, the squash in the recipe pictures isn’t the one whose seeds now reside in the yard).
potatoes_64Holy POTATO! Check these out! They’re up to my waist now in all of their potato glory.

The yukon potatoes have their first flower! And surprise surprise, it’s a much lighter color than the blue potato flowers I took pictures of on Monday.carrots_70Those is some carrots. They sure are purty. I’m still not convinced that they’ll be worth it, but since they’re already here I’m going to let them do their thing and see what happens.
parsnips_68The parsnips are getting bigger! They even have some real leaves.
peas_67Look how big and happy those peas are! They’re making lots of pods but we’ll have to wait a little longer before they’ve filled out properly.

We have more tomatoes stashed in the garden (two beefsteaks, one cherry and something else) besides the two plants on the deck.

This bush is producing ‘maters like mad! They’re getting bigger and bigger every day! Dad was suggesting some fried green tomatoes, we’ll see if that happens. I’ve never tried so it’ll be a fun experiment, no?
