We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Latest Photos Of The Garden

As promised, here at the latest photos of our garden. My H rototilled the one area that does not have a raised bed this morning so that I could plant flower and melon seeds.

 Seeds that I just planted. Give it a week or so and I will have photos of seedlings



 Basil and I hope that I didn't plant my transplants too early. I already lost one plant to root rot.

Kale and it is looking good.

Meyer lemon, but don't let this picture fool you. It was taken with a macro lens and this lemon is really about 1 inch long.


 Peas and by the way there are carrots planted between the rows of peas, but I would practically have to fall into the raised bed  to get a photo of the carrots at this point. Trust me for now--they are there.

Beans are just coming up

 More beans

  1. Wow! Everything is looking great! Your kale and cabbage look especially good.

  2. Ed I have no idea why the cabbages look like they are on steroids. I have not done anything unusual to them, except spray with neem ( organic) to keep the cabbage worms at bay. I probably have fertilzed them once, and pretty much have left them alone. Same for just about everyting in my garden. We have had rain every week, so we have been lucky.

  3. Nice overhead shot! I like overhead shots of gardens, I was going to post one of mine this week.
