|I'm up to 20 eaten now!|
|These have started turning red in the week since I took this pic!|
I planted a few new things this year, but didn't take the time to record
WHEN I planted or WHEN they will be ready.
How do you know when carrots are ready?
This is my first ever CARROT!
As you can C, it's pretty small.
I did manage to make it 2 bites and guess what?
|It tasted like a carrot too!|
This right here? This is CROWDED!
We have been so busy upstairs getting unpacked and settled..along with Travis' newer projects
and as it turns out--maybe 3 beds of greens was a bit much?
I have neglected them in part to the bitterness of the collards in our last couple BBQs.
Maybe I should make a dish with out the collards?
|Since LAZY isn't for 9 more letters!|
I had no problem planting this--only took 2-3 hours to get it all in the ground... we planted 3x the garden as last year on purpose. I expected to lose a few plants and eat more veggies and give more away--but finding 2+ hours a week to work in the garden doesn't sound like much, but it is really hard to find the time recently
Here is the breakdown of what is going on out here:
I planted WAY too many peas--possibly of some super sucky variety so they do not taste good off the vine-I have 4 gallons in the fridge already. Should I stir fry them or freeze them? or Shell them?
I planted 20 bean plants--but cannot see them!
My broccoli is all done and I tore it out. What do I put there?
2 of my beds of Greens got Aphids that I can't get rid of. Started tearing some out and soaping the rest.
Lettuce--oh how I love thee! We ate a lot for a month and then? I was sick of salads and quit harvesting it... now they are several feet tall. Lettuce is NOT supposed to be tall right? Think I will tear it out and replant.
Carrots & Radishes--have no idea when to pluck them.
Cabbage is cabbage-less. One less thing to figure out!
Kale, Collard, Chard: What doesn't have aphids needs harvesting, what does needs to be torn out.
Weeds: Plentiful! Must harvest soon!
Tomatoes are doing great! But I better figure out what to do with them all pretty soon!
Flowers--I pluck a few each week and put in a bud vase on my desk
I also need to feed things and reroute my hose to make sure the toms get enough.
I have a list around here... somewhere...
Contrast--love how this flower was randomly planted next to the purple lettuce. I forget the type of this flower--it was the only one with out a tag
Cats prowling for birds. They don't care for veggies.
Cannonball!!!!! As a quick celebration of the sun, I brought a pool to my favorite little girl Ivy.
We had fun in the sun last weekend. The adults(?) sat in chairs with our feet in the pool whist she jumped and played and splashed us.
Well--if I do not post this now--I will continue to add more C's to the list and you won't see it til
I now have Crows, Chester, Cake, Cayenne to add!
