Lacey’s Garden – Farmer’s Market

(*Note – I was supposed to post this two days ago.  My bad.  -Jason)

My garden has finally taken off.  The plants are loving the fertilizer!   Of course, so are the weeds.  I can barely keep them out.  I plan on mulching with more straw but it is sold out at all the feed stores here in town.  I have enough lettuce right now that I was able to sale some at our Farmers Market this past Saturday and I think I am going to sale some this Saturday, too.  Here are a few pictures of my garden.

Lacey’s Garden – Lettuce, Strawberries and Tomatoes

Hello to all!  How is everybody enjoying the start of summer, the end of school and hopefully, the first bits of your harvest?  Lettuce is in full swing right now and strawberries, too.  I actually have tomatoes on the vine slowly ripening in the hot summer sun.  This is my favorite time of summer-checking each day to see what’s ripening.  It is a joy to call the girls over and say, Look, the first strawberry!  They are so excited to eat them.  I am posting a few pictures of the garden.  Things are still looking kind of puny after nearly drowning, but most seem to be pulling out of it.  Hope you have time to sit and swing in the hammock and enjoy your garden.
