Garden Goods

Our 2nd green bean pickings. We took this picking over to my parents house, we were still eating off the 1st batch and I'm not into canning yet. We gave them a banana pepper too, Brad insists that we need 2 banana pepper plants cause we eat them.......uh, Not really. I guess I can try to find ways to eat them though.

Everything is looking pretty good this year. This garden look 100X better than last year. We have had some losses though..... 2 of the 3 cauliflower plants (died), 1 of the 3 collard greens (died), my tomitillo plant (murdered by the hoe/oops).

Things that are growing exceptionally well......squash, tomatoes, green beans, onions, lettuce, eggplant, broccoli and corn.

I'm about to be buried in 2 things..... tomatoes and summer squash. Definitley going to have to spread those among friends and family.

* Phone update: Phone guy came out on Monday. "Fixed it" and we had internet and phone for a whopping 24 hours. Thanks guys, your awesome! When I got home from work yesterday they had the line marked with flags and a message on my answering machine that they will be out within the next 10 days to replace the line. 10 days.......don't rush or anything. This has only been going on for YEARS and I'm pretty sure they already replaced the line since we've been here and that didn't really work but ok.


  1. I'm so jealous of your garden! Can I have some?

  2. Sure! I'll bring you whatever I have ready in Sept! Assuming I haven't killed everything yet :)
