A Garden Update!

I haven't been giving the gardens much love lately. Life got too busy and while enjoying the garden as we harvested this morning I realized...I need to give my garden some blog love!

This is my Aiden. He loves him some 'maters. Despite his mommy referring to them as 'maters all of his life he has the most perfectly clear dialect for his fave fruity veggie. He calls them tomatoes...with such emphasis on the second Tow-may-toes it's adorable! He'll eat them right off of the plant.
These are 2 of our beds. The tomato plants have to be at least 7 feet tall. They droop over the cages so much that we purchased 9 foot stakes today to help them reach that sunlight.
The cherry tomatoes are huge this year.
The beef,asters are all doing well...
And the Roma's are in abundance!
The green peppers are twice as big as last years!
Sadly our beautiful squash plants all died. I'm not sure why, but they gifted us a lot of beautiful zucchini whilke they were here.
My 3 lettuce blend is doing good.
Even the super late green bean bushes  planted are doing well!
The Cukes are comnig in faster than we can eat them.
We have yet to eat an eggplant. These 2 are coming along nicely.
The Jalapenos are lovely, and we have a lot more than we could eat too. We're going to have to star freezing these, for sure!
Here's part of todays harvest. I think we may need to make some salsa!

Happy gardening!


  1. Oh, I'm so jealous. All those fresh veggies! I was thinking eggplant casserole, tomato sandwiches........goodness. We can't grow a thing in our soil here...just too sad and too sandy. Now I'm going to have to go back and see (again) where you are. Beautiful pictures.

  2. Our soil was poor. We built raised beds and purchased pulverized crushed soil from a landscaping center in Southern Indiana. It's been our best gardening year yet. We plan to have eggplant parmesan this week. :)

  3. Wow!!! It's doing great!! My tomatoes are finally starting to ripen and I did snag 2 green peppers and some very yummy jalapenos the other night. :)

    I also do a raised bed and a mix of purchased soil and manure.

  4. Your plants are really doing good this year! I would love to pick those jalapenos and have them for my Mexican recipes! The tomatoes are also delightful! Thanks for sharing this post! MOre please!
