What I'm wearing, what I'm eating while wearing it.
I.Typical work lunch everything-in-the-fridge salad with lettuce from the garden and edamame
II. Minty green with pink shoes
I. Basics on basics
II. Zucchini 'noodles' fresh from my garden with faux meat sauce, even better as leftovers

Garden Progress.

Friday, July 11, 2014

I knew my garden was really growing this year, but when I looked at this photo comparison I was pretty pleased- especially since 99.9% of everything was grown from seed.

Beginning of the season: Garden May 26th:

Garden June 3rd:

Garden June 21st:

Garden July 9th:
And of course, a side by side comparison, June->July:

We've come a long way and summer is only half way through.

Garden Harvesting.

Thursday, July 10, 2014

I'm totally not a gusher, but A. look how cute my husband is, and B. look at that potato harvest! This is the first year to try potatoes and I wasn't sure what we would get from it.  We did an early harvest, you can do July or August from what I read.
Also, check out the squash growing to the left behind him.
Here is our harvest from the other night, this is a giant bucket so its a quite a few pounds of potatoes (between 5-10 lbs I would guess). There is also green beans, we have them coming out the wazoo, and cabbage leaves here.
This is another one of our squashes, it is about the size of a football right now and still growing.  We have squashes coming up all over, I might have been a bit overzealous with 9 squash plants in a smallish area (and two pumpkins, 1 melon, and more vining monsters). Currently they are growing out and over trellis', over the fence containing the entire garden, and along the ground.
