Welcome! Garden Tour, part two

Squares

I left you yesterday with a big view of the big garden area. When Chuck put this together, he created walkways so I could plant, weed, and harvest without slogging through the dirt. Not that I mind playing in the dirt – but back to the garden tour.

???????????????????????????????

One set of straw bales plays home to jalapeno peppers. I predict salsa in our future.

More peppers

One the other side, the bales provide soil and support for yellow banana peppers. These are delicious. We eat some, freeze some, and last summer I pickled some.

Beans, beans.

Beans, beans.

Two squares are devoted to beans, the green and yellow kinds. Some type of furry creature has been nibbling here. The evidence points toward a deer, and we do occasionally see one of those lovely critters in the area. I just wish they’d feast on something else.

Tomato, tomahto

Tomato, tomahto

The tomatoes also get two squares. This one is growing like wildfire. It hardly needs the support poles; these tomato plants are winding together to hold each other up!

Bunny food! And people, too.

A variety of lettuces fill the center square. There’s one empty corner. My theory: old seeds that didn’t grow. Oh, well, I have plenty.

Well, folks, despite the late start, I’m growing quite a bit of food for my family and friends. I don’t feel like a doomsday prepper (yet), but I do enjoy the feeling of watching the garden grow.

Share and Enjoy !
