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 :P .
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! :)
