Bunnies and Yarn, Need I Say More


Lest You Think There Is No More Produce

There is still some lovely produce in the garden. The tomatoes are producing well. The zucchini is winding down finally. I have to admit that I am happy to see some of this zucchini die. I really did plant too much of it and I am ready to stop picking it. I’m almost to the point where I can tear out the plants and not feel badly.

The cucumbers are nearly gone too. I still have a few of these strange cucumbers coming up. I did not plant these intentionally. The plant grew from one of the seeds in my packet of course, but this was not one of the cucumber breeds I bought. Anyway, I just think they are kind of strange looking.

The Garden Just Goes and Goes

A few days of picking the garden continues to produce a lot of lovely veggies. The zucchini keep going and going and going. I think the green beans are finally slowing down though. And the basil is on its last legs. I’ve picked the flower heads at least 3 times. I might be able to snag one more picking from them before the frost sets in this fall though. The okra is essentially dead. We never really ate any of the okra because Avi claimed there was not enough okra ready at any one time. The little thai chili plant is loaded with peppers so I’m sure we will be enjoying those in the days to come. In a few weeks the garden will be asleep for the year and I’ll finally be able to share more of my knitting in progress! Not that sharing the garden is not fun, but I am missing the knitting around here.

Tiny hot peppers. I think these are the jalapenos. I’m not sure though.

Lovely first cucumber. There are more on the way. So many lovely flowers.

Eggplants. They are the tiny variety. I made sure to buy them because I like them so much better than the giant Italian variety.

Tomatoes. I haven’t had many yet, only a handful of the little golden nugget kind.

These are the tigerella tomatoes. I love the green stripes on these fruits.

Zucchini. I might have a few zucchini. Ahem.

Green beans. Or in this case, purple beans. I really love this variety. They are fast, productive, tender, and easy to spot.

Also, the lovely sugarpot watermelon has decided to produce a tiny watermelon for me.


Finally, I Planted the Garden

Avi and I managed to plant everything except for the peas and corn one night this week. I planted the rest a day later. I’m not sure how some of these things will do, but I have high hopes for a bountiful garden.

I marked most of the plants in this photo. I didn’t mark the watermelon or cucumber plant because I’m not sure which one is which any more and they didn’t look very good. They may not grow.

Abbie decided to dig around in the peas. So, there was some replanting and a lot of cussing. We will see if they can still produce. I have high hopes.
