Garden Goodies








The early summer and warm, sunny days continues here! Spring was so slow to unfold, and didn't really happen... then suddenly we're in the midst of summer, and have been for some weeks now. Our garden is bursting with growing goodies! All the seeds we planted sprouted and developing into strong plants. The red beets and two kinds of beans are really taking off. Herbs on the patio are overflowing their pots. The peonies have been so lovely, and the lavender too. Oh, and we planted seed potatoes--very exciting! This is our first time trying potatoes. We were a little late getting the potatoes in, as we had a hard time finding somewhere that offered a small amount of seed potatoes for sale rather than for a whole farm... but we have time for a harvest possible before frost hits. 

What's growing where you are?!

  1. Your garden is going much better than ours! Potatoes -- I'm impressed! I have three strawberries on my plants but Rick's radishes came up and the herbs are going like crazy! Yes, a late start this year and weird weather. Oh, what a bounty, Tracy -- both what you have and what's ahead!

    1. This is such an exciting time in the garden, isn't it?! So glad things are coming along there too, Jeanie! Soon we strawberries will be ready for picking too... and we have teeny, tiny plum tomatoes forming on the patio tomato. The potatoes are really exciting as we've never tried those before. Already I have ideas for next years beds... and to add a few more raised beds. Growing and eating our own is addictive. ;)

  3. Wow that is amazing all you have from your garden now. We do have kale and mustard greens I really must pick. Then tons of roses, which we have been sharing with friends. The squirrels ate the cherries already, naughty squirrels. Now I must keep my eyes on the plums, but it will be awhile for them. The tomatoes, squash, and pumpkins are growing quickly. It is a fun time of year for the garden and I love it.

    1. LOVE hearing what's happening in your patch, Marilyn! Pity about your cherries, though. And squirrels are very cute--hard to stay mad long. ;) I try not to be to mad at wildlife... they need to eat too... LOL! Next year I would like to try kale, as we like that. Last year we tried bok choy, but had no joy with that, but may try again, as we love that too.

  4. Oh my, I do love your plants. The photos are awesome. I can see that you are bursting all over with wonderful goodies to come. I wish we had a garden going this year. I will have a few vegetables planted in garden containers but that will be all. I envy you and all your hard work.
    Blessings for abundance of produce for you and hugs for all your hard work. You are such a great example of what we should be doing.
    Big hugs!

    1. Oh, but your veggies in container sounds exciting, LeAnn! Just think--almost to weeds to deal with that way. ;) Look forward to seeing what you grow. Thank you for the abundance blessings--so much appreciated! I hope God blesses us with some rain soon, it's been so dry for weeks here, which is unusual...

  5. It all looks wonderful, Tracy. Glad to see that your garden is flourishing. We are having hailstones this morning, so no chance of getting any gardening done today. Marie x

    1. Thanks, Marie... in spite of little rain, and just hand watering, things are doing pretty well. Hope you get a real taste of spring soon there!

  6. Don't you just love being able to 'harvest' from the backyard?!? Your garden is looking spectacular. We've already hit the heat here....over 90 the past week with no let up in sight, so somewhat fruitlessly trying our best to keep things watered. Since I'm also helping to water the flowers and trees at church.....it seems my summer so far is being spent behind a hose!!!!

  7. I love seeing how your garden is doing Tracy! It looks fabulous! We have had an incredibly warm and sunny May/June also. I hope it is not all the summer we get, which is usually the case! Our strawberries are going bonkers at the moment. We are enjoying a bumper crop this year and the black currants are ready to pick as well as the gooseberries. Glut and famine is usually how it goes. Our pear tree is loaded with pears, as are the blueberry and logan berry bushes, but oddly enough no plums or apples on those trees. Its a mystery! If we don't soon get some rain, there will probably be a hose pipe ban instituted! We rely so much on the rain over here in the UK. We are having to water every day, which is most unsual! Love you my sweet friend, and love all that you share! xoxo
