Garden Update

This one is going to be an up close and personal update because so many changes are happening on a small scale.

beans63The beans are getting their pretty little pink flowers. They’re so delicate and nice…
peas76And the peas! ALL THE PEAS! The ‘rents have been eating some in the week I’ve been gone, but there are still plenty out there.
squash65The yellow summer squash I planted has these funny light blotches on their leaves. I think I even spotted a teeny tiny yellow squash forming!

potato59
The potato flowers that have already bloomed are now turning into funny little fruits… I swear I put potatoes in the ground. What’s going on!?
rhubarb53
Remember that little baby rhubarb I was coaxing into life on the windowsill? Well, here it is! Impressive… I know.

Veggie Trader

I have no idea how I found this site… it’s been a while since I did. The idea is that sometimes you have an excess of edibles that you’ve grown, or are accidentally growing (we’ve all seen apple trees loaded with fruit and no one wants to pick it), well here is a site where you can list all of your excess produce . I love this idea so much! Unfortunately, so far there’s very few people on (or at least no one within a 20 mile radius). You should check it out and join (it’s free) so that we can get more people and more produce on! Thanks Veggie Trader for stepping up to the plate and bringing something cool with you.

I’ll definitely list some squash on there if it goes as bonanza as I think it will (I have about 10 plants which will wind up being about 10 plants too many, I think) and maybe some potatoes if they’re as bountiful as they look. We’ll see.
