Fresh From The Garden
With this crazy lack of rain, I wasn’t sure that I could grow much of anything this year. My pepper plants are still looking a little sad, they are growing peppers but the plant isn’t growing upwards. This year we planted some carrots, celery (which the rabbits have eaten), broccoli, three types of tomatoes, potatoes, basil, thyme, and watermelon! I also planted pear trees. We have had bad luck with our planting of trees, and they affectionately turn into “the stick.”
My Seckel Pear tree started dropping and leaves and I thought it was doomed, but it has stopped and appears to be thriving. The Anjou pear tree hasn’t gotten any pears yet, but I am thinking their pears start a tad bit later.
One of my favorites though, is the tomato, and I can hardly wait to eat the first of the season. What do you have in the garden this year?? Here is my broccoli, it will be going in stir fry!
