Our Garden


Thanks to my wonderful hubby I have a very nice looking garden this year. Mike likes to garden and usually takes care of it from start to finish. The girls and I will help him pull weeds some of the time, but our part of the garden is picking, cooking, and canning.

It is so nice & peaceful I like to read the paper & drink my coffee out there in the mornings.

Mike planted lots of tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapenos, eggplant, yellow squash, zucchini, and cucumbers. We have grape vines and huge blackberry vines that will take over the entire garden if we don’t keep it under control.

So far we have picked one cucumber and yellow squash. I picked 6 yellow squash the first day & have already picked several more. If you have any favorite squash recipes you would like to share we could use a few more. Do you ever freeze, dry, or can them?

We ran out of salsa & spaghetti sauce from last year, so Amber can’t wait for the tomatoes so we can make some more salsa. I just want to eat one.

Last year at this time, we had a few blackberries ready, but this year we haven’t had any yet. We love all the fresh produce we get from the little plot in our yard.
