It's official, my laptop is completely dead, gone and buried. ::cries::
Hope I'll still get a chance or two to post here but it won't be with the frequency it once was unless something changes. (Like a bag of money falls out of the sky to buy a new one!) Well, more time to spend in the garden, right? Speaking of...
So one of the funny things we found when digging around in the pile of dirt that was our yard improvement project was this guy:
I think he should have a name... any ideas?
Our peas are also coming in - yay! They are so sweet, I just love garden fresh peas and feel very sorry for anyone who's yet to try a vegetable that's this delish. I could literally stand next to the vines waiting for them to ripen and just graze. Mmmm peas.
My potatoes are also going bonkers. I really wish I could've put them in a growing bin but DH was burned out on the yard construction projects. Drat! Maybe next year. As it is, I've had to prop them up because they were shading the cilantro which I didn't notice under the foliage actually got really leggy. Yikes. I hope I can pinch it back enough but it might already be too far gone.
The green beans are also about 10' tall at this point! There are little white flowers just starting to bloom on them so I'm looking forward to getting to eat and pickle them. I love pickled green beans!
The artichokes are also finally starting to look more like plants then overgrown dandelions. I got such a late start on these I'm not sure we'll actually get any chokes this year. I'm going to try to overwinter them under a hoop frame - we'll see how that goes in a few months.
The first little Marigold bloom peeked it's head into the world today too. That was a nice thing to find.
Oh and my sweetheart tom has little tiny tomatoes on it - all green but there. I'm quite pleased. =)
