Garden and Grapes

2 Jun

I’m finished planting the garden at my house.  Finally.

It has potatoes and garlic.  I added an asparagus bed.  It’s not looking too impressive yet, but it’s only been a week.  I was actually impressed anything had grown yet.  Look closely.  You can see it in the picture.

I added sage and pineapple sage.  Parsley, spinach, and celery.  Peppers:  bell, red, yellow, and pinot noir.  There are tons of tomatoes.  As you can see, they were getting quite tall.  I started them indoors in little pots in March.  I had planned on putting them in larger pots, but that never got done.  It’s unbelievable that they managed to live that long in such itty bitty pots.

Eggplant and okra just for fun.  Cabbages green and purple.

Green beans and lima beans. Butternut and Zucchini squash.  And one lonely luffa gourd.  Hopefully planting the seed indoors in March will give it the extra growing time it needs to produce gourds and let them fully ripen.  If not, I’ll have to try February next year.

I have a wild grape vine growing on the fence next to my garden.  It looks like there will be a lot of grapes on it this fall.

We had a beautiful rain last night.  Luckily, my area was north of the tornadoes.  It was too wet to plant the garden on the north part of the farm.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to do that tomorrow.  It seems like this school year has drug on forever.   I was actually supposed to be done yesterday.  Due to snow days, I’ll be working through next Tuesday.  It has made it difficult to get things done.
