Take some, we've got plenty

Because of my work schedule this year, I mainly planted things and then came in months later and harvested. Dear hubby did most of the work in between. It has been a bit of a rough year in the garden because of cool temperatures in the spring followed by way too much rain. Our sandy soil usually dries out easily but it was fairly wet through the spring this year.

The raspberries did quite well (and are delicious). We also have a good supply of potatoes, zucchini, ground cherries and currants. Fortunately, the asparagus always does well. However, the tomatoes, peppers and winter squash have been disappointing. My one surprise for the year is watermelon. I have at least 10 in the garden. Normally I have been able to grow exactly one melon each year so this has been fun.

Well, if I keep blogging at my current pace, I will probably be back in October to write about my 1-2 winter squash. However, for now it is back out to the garden for my raspberry breakfast. Happy gardening!

We too are seeing the same results in our garden....then add a few pesty deer that jumped the garden fence and ATE all our green been plants & blossoms.

Those raspberries look delicious!

I forgot to mention the beans and broccoli became bunny food before we put wire fencing up (they chewed through the plastic fencing).

Chris, I have a special fondness for're lucky I don't have your address or I'd pick/eat them while you're at work. ha-ha

I'm growing veggies in 5-gallon buckets this year. I have 3 smallish round watermelons on the vine right now...can't think of the name of them.

We're not exactly burning up the blogging world with our posts, are we? We're too busy living life.

Happy day to you. donna
