Garden Update

Hey hey! It’s ‘mato time again!

tomato_09

One of the tomato plants is producing tomatoes like there’s no tomorrow while the other ones seem content to keep growing upwards and outwards.

strawberry_02

We’ve been having some unfortunate strawberry casualties in the garden. Ants have been gnawing them to pieces before they become ripe. Mummy put some ant traps out there, we’ll see if those work.

squash_03

Oh man, the first yellow squash has poked its adorable leafy-greenness up! I’m so excited!

sage_05

The sage is doing it’s thing quite nicely without any help. The basil is a bit on the developmentally challenged side, it seems happy enough to stay the same size that it has for the last month. I’m going to not post about it until it decides to join the big kids at the grown up table.

potatoes_87

Those potatoes are still growing with some freakish determination. I literally watched them grow 1/4 inch in three hours. INSANE. I really should find some more dirt to cover them up with. Then we’ll have lotsa potatoes.

peas_90

The peas are still climbing upwards and onwards as peas tend to do.

peas_93

But now they’re accompanied by flowers! Pea flowers mean pea fruit which means peas in my tummy!

parsnips_99

Oh man oh man the parsnips have ARRIVED! At last.

carrots_96

Those carrots continue to be lame. Only half of them germinated and they germinated right next to each other! Soon I’ll have to thin the suckers out (and yes mom, you DO need to thin carrots. I’ll just do it when you’re not looking anyway.).

blueberries_86

Blubbery blobbery blooberries!

beans_891

The beans are still kickin’ it in the fast lane. They’ve got their first set of adult leaves to compliment their enormous baby leaves.
I feel like I just posted about all of this stuff. Has it already been a week? Sheesh…
