Bunnies and Yarn, Need I Say More

And, Yeah, I’m Still In the Garden


There are all manner of things coming out of the garden now. Onions, tomatoes, okra, zucchini, cucumbers, green beans, basil, thai chilies, jalapenos, and sometimes potatoes too.   I’m spending at least 30 minutes picking in the garden every day.  Some days it is closer to 90 minutes.  Especially on green bean picking days.


While I was picking said beans, I found a little friend.  I’m actually ok with the praying mantis in the garden.  It freaked me out when I found one on my hand though.  I was expecting a zucchini leaf attached to my hand, not the bug.  I might have done a bit of a dance and yelled “Wa-AAAAAH!”



Pizza! From the Garden!

Most of the produce on this pizza came from the garden and it makes me happy.  The zucchini, onions, tomato sauce, tomatoes, and basil were all from my garden.



It was really yummy.

Dough: Pioneer Woman’s Pizza Dough
Sauce: Roasted Garlic Tomato Sauce
Toppings: zucchini, onions, pepperoni, basil, mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes, oregano

Garden In The Evening


Cucumbers. I don’t have any yet, but I know they are coming. Look at all of the lovely plants and flowers growing up my cage.


Lots of tomatoes growing and growing.  We have had only a very few golden nugget cherry tomatoes so far.  


Potatoes!  I’m a little excited about the potatoes.


The eggplant are just starting to produce nicely.  I’m really happy with the little eggplants coming on.  


The zucchini has really come into its own. I’ve been harvesting the light colored zucchini for a couple of weeks, but the dark green is just starting to produce.  The cilantro and kale are growing really well too!



The okra, basil, basil, thai basil, and cilantro are just starting to really grow. 


Lots of green beans and some lovely onions too! 

How Does the Garden Grow Post 2

I promised another quick look at the garden. Here we go again.


Cucumbers. Growing and vining. I’m waiting for the first flowers to appear. I’m sure cucumbers will be in my future soon. Whoo!


The green beans are happy and bushy in their rows. I’m picking some lovely green, yellow, and purple beans. In fact, I think I’m bringing in about 3/4 of a gallon every day or every other day. Love my beans.


Green tomatoes on the vine. See? Just a few right now. I’m hoping for a bumper crop of lovely tomatoes too. We used that tomato puree I made last year all winter. I think there are just a few jars left.


The eggplants are just getting started with their crops. We have one abused eggplant on the plant here. I call it abused because it has been gnawed on in several places, but continues to fight on.


The zucchini has become a jungle. Yes. A veritable zucchini jungle. I’m plucking them young and tender. I just hope Avi remembers to pick them when I’m gone judging at the end of the month! Can you imagine how many and how big the zucchini would be if he forgot for 3 days? Yikes!


Lots of onions are growing big and strong too. I think we’ll be able to harvest a few at the end of the month.

Vegetables in the Garden

I’m sure the garden has grown a lot while I’ve been away at TNNA. Here is how it looked just before I left.


Kale’s eye view.


The peppers are all in a line.


The onions look stately. Tiny, but stately.


The tomatoes are all planted and the potatoes are behind them.


You can sort of see the green beans and peas in this shot. It’s a bit of a long view of the garden.

Garden 2015 (Well Half of It)


As you can read on the photo, I planted quite a few things last weekend. I also left some space to plant a few more things. The weather turned just cold enough that I didn’t want to risk planting the tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, and okra.

I’m looking forward to a lovely harvest this summer. So many things I can’t wait to see. And taste. 🙂
