What’s going on in the herb garden as of NOW.

DSC_0014

Not too shabby.

The bed I installed to keep my kids off of that stump…so far it’s working.

My black bean, I assumed was a bush bean until it sent out a “climber”.  You live, you learn.

Sugar-pie pumpkin #2, stone sink-ing it up, trellising on the fence.  It’s working okay, the stem-boring beetles have attacked it though.  I only hope it stays alive long enough for the fruit on it to mature.

The stem-boring beetles eat a hole in the stem and it kills the plant, notice the yellow.

This one isn’t doing as well as the pumpkin on the trellis.  It is experiencing a lot of blossom drop.

DSC_0021

I tied this on to give it support and later in the day it grew ever so much and broke free from the restraints I tried to keep it under.  Nobody keeps my pumpkins down!

DSC_0022

Yeah, not so much.

By the by, Paul dug up over 200 pounds of potatoes!

He deserves big props, for it was no small task digging them all up.

Some more pumpkins in the mix.

Watermelon mania!  Do another little dance.

Whoop!  Whoop!

A view of that way.

Pie pumpkin out in the field.

DSC_0043

Just to let you know, this is a pumpkin called “Big Max”, can you say county fair winner?

DSC_0044

Okra!  I just cooked some for the first time in my life tonight and let me tell you something, all of you non-southerners, okra is delicious!

DSC_0045

Pickle me PLEASE!

DSC_0047

MMMMmmmmmmmmmm.

Currently turning all of that basil into pesto.

The never ending post, it’s okay, almost over.

DSC_0050

Me, trying to be edgy.  But then there’s my foot.

Back view of my “keep off the stump” garden.

I’m proud of this fruit right here, love you boo.

DSC_0056

The newer babies, thing 1 and thing 2.

DSC_0059

The new space for the bigger babies, there’s five of them.  Thanks for checking out these pictures, sorry for the jumbled order, I don’t blame you if you need to get a drink right now.  Actually, that sounds like a great idea.  Until next time.
