Picked Some Veggies Last Night

After being gone a week, we got out in the garden with Charley and picked us some fresh vegetables. The garden looks good and is doing well. The heat has Charley watering a little more than usual. Our pepper plants are a little short because he planted them later than usual but we are still getting a lot of peppers. The squash have done their thing and will be plowed up so the Charley can replant some squash seed.

I have never picked okra until last night. I am not sure I ever will again.

Had some of the cantaloupe for breakfast and Sweet 100 Cherry Tomatoes at lunch. Both were delicious.

It Has Been A Long Time Since We Posted

Hello everyone,

I have been very neglectful in posting here. I had to have a second surgery on my leg which knocked me out of all of last summer. My dad had a garden for us but it as so hot, nothing did well. The key to that last statement is “nothing did well.”

If you were a new gardener and did not have any luck, don’t sweat it. Professional farmers had a hard time keeping crops alive last summer. We are back again this year with another garden. We are a little dry and are already having to water some, but everything looks good so far.

Here are some pictures to get us all started.
