How Does Your Garden Grow?


We have had a weird spring and, therefore, got a late start to our garden.

But it is coming along nicely now.

 We planted our beans and the rain fell. A few days later the plants popped out of the ground.

These are our tomato plants. We planted three dozen plants. We already have tomatoes the size of large marbles.
 
We got a late start on our sweet potatoes. 
But they are coming along.
 
 Our peas are taking off!

 This is one of our five rows of red potatoes.
 
This is not my garden. 

These are my two rows of blackberries.
I am keeping my fingers crossed. They have not did well at all the last 2-3 years. I pruned them big time this spring and they have took off! But, this doesn't mean the vines will not die on me, like they have the past few years.


What do you have growing in your garden?

  1. Wow! Your garden sure is off to a good start now! There'll be lots of potatoes to pick up; one of my least likable jobs ~ lol. We have potatoes, beets, squash, tomatoes, KY wonder pole beans, sweet corn, and purple hull peas. I also put our a packet of flower seeds to put a little cheer into the garden and hopefully I can save seeds from them. Now, if we can all have a productive summer!!

    1. Hi, Charlotte. Sounds like you have a great garden. I don't mind picking up the potatoes, but I don't like the potato bugs!

  5. My garden is etsy bitsy this year. I have gone from a very large garden from years past to this little garden. But i just like the feeling of getting outside puttering a bit in the garden and sitting beside it and watching the natural critters. Sunflowers are my favorite plant and I do grow quite a few of these. Funny -- in Oregon where I live blackberries are considered nuisances. They take over many open fields and borders. I don't think of them as nuisances, I stand and pick the free berries for my home desserts. -- barbara

    1. Can't believe they think of blackberries as nuisances. I love sunflowers, too. I didn't plant any this year, though.
