How does your garden grow?

How does my garden grow? I'm so glad you asked!

The green beans are growing beautifully - they are crispy and delicious and make life worth living.

I've been told I exaggerate.

I had a picture of strawberries to put here, but since I'm using my phone camera for all of these, it didn't turn out very well. I'm trying to pick the berries and flowers off so the roots can go deep for next year, but I did have the opportunity to sample one last night. Delicious, but really sour. Yikes.

Roma tomatoes! We have dozens on the plant right now. I'm so excited to spend a whole day in the coming weeks making tons of pasta sauce!

This, my friends, is what happens when you don't buy a lattice in time. Holy cow. Cucumber explosion!

Baby cucumbers!

This is the biggest of the gang so far - I anticipate being able to feed several third world countries with the amount of cucumbers that have taken over.

And of course, the herb garden. It kind of wimped out, except for the sage and parsley. The basil, lavender, thyme, and rosemary didn't really do very much. I was hoping to have enough basil to make enough pesto to last until Jesus comes back. But we don't actually have ANY basil. Rats.

Cake bite blog to follow! Have a lovely day!
