Every morning I go outside, feed the chickens and clean the coop and then water and tend my garden. I love that each and every day I can see some growth and now, usually, there is at least one ripe vegetable.
Of course these have already been eaten. The tomatoes by the munchkins and I made yellow squash fries for all of us for dinner last night – yum!!
And my first eggplant of the season. It looks way bigger in the picture than it is in real life, it was the size of my hand.
I LOVE when succulents flower!!
The first artichokes of the season were ripe!
And now they are all gone! Yum, Yum!!
I love it when my cactus does this!!
I am late this year getting everything planted, but as I was outside pulling weeds and readying the beds I found:
Artichokes are a family favorite – I could plant 10 of these and still not have enough to feed the family!
This plant is kind of a monster and comes back in full force every year.
I have several of these strawberry pots and LOVE them!
The first strawberries of the season – I didn’t get even 1/2 of one! As soon as the youngest two heard me exclaim that we had strawberries, they ran outside and gobbled them up!
I plant seeds and the misshapen one was found in a small planter.
And two rogue carrots found while weeding. I’ll cook them up tonight!
Look what I found in the garden this morning!
Picked the last of the beets from the garden this morning.
These will be showing up on the dinner table tonight! Yummy!!
