Every time I have gone outside to work on my garden this week, it has rained! I’m so dead serious – even when there was no sign of rain in the sky, if I go work in my garden, the clouds come and the rain starts! So, I guess you can blame me for all this rain that we’ve had because I am determined to get my garden up and running!!
The vine you see growing over the arbor to my garden is a wisteria vine! I’ve always loved wisteria and wanted to incorporate that somehow. It hasn’t bloomed yet, but it’s still a young plant, I suspect that next year it will bloom.
These are my green beans. They have already (overnight) taken a liking to their new trellis and have begun to climb it! I just got that trellis up – while it rained – and with at least 10 Mosquitos on each leg despite the many citronella candles and torches that I had burning (in the rain). But determination and perseverance is something I was gifted with and so I didn’t let a little rain, a few dozen Mosquitos, nor a little thunder rumbling in the distance stop me from getting my trellis’ up. And NO, you don’t get a picture of the drowned rat that I looked like after I was done .
Here are my peas! I love peas and I can’t wait to have some, raw, right from the garden – on my salad!! The peas are not quite as aggressive about climbing the trellis as the green beans are, however, they are sending out their runners and will find it eventually!
This is a close up of the bean leaves strictly for your enjoyment. I just love how water droplets look on leaves! It makes me happy!
My squash! Yum, yum, yum…
Then one of my favorites.. The tomato section! They are still very small, but I have 6 big boy tomatoes and 6 black cherry tomato plants and I can’t wait! There is NOTHING like the flavor of a tomato right from the garden!! Oh my! More on my tomatoes later! But I love my yellow cages, don’t you?
Here are my eggplants… They are doing good and will be a wonderful addition to our world of vegetables! Eggplants have the prettiest flowers and I can’t wait to post some pictures of the beautiful lavender flowers!! This fall when I harvest my eggplants there will definitely be moussaka on the menu!!
I didn’t get a picture of my spinach or my Boston leaf lettuce, but they are coming up too! Also I have several rows of sweet peppers that are doing just fine .
Lastly, but if course not least, my beautiful grapefruit tree is loaded with ripening grapefruits!
Ya gotta have a close up of the water droplets on the grapefruit and leaves because I love the way that looks!
Have a happy, productive Saturday! I hope you enjoy your day. I’m off to Everman’s Natural Foods in Pensacola!
