This is a pictorial update as to what is in the mix with the garden/farm. Thanks for checking it out and keep it up you nosey farm fanatic…because face it, that’s what you are.
Look at the tomatoes please.
These were the first of the season. I know what you’re thinking: “Amanda, it’s July and you’re just now getting ripe tomatoes?”
And my response to you is: “Yes, so.”
According to Dr. Calvin Bey, it hasn’t been a great year for tomatoes, and I would have to agree, because it’s past mid-July and our tomatoes are just now turning ripe.
Sugar baby watermelons. I have to tell you, it has been a trip for me to see watermelons grow. it’s a low, sprawling plant, I’ve never seen it before, and no pest is bothering it! Watermelons to the max next year! Yeah, that’s what I said….TO THE MAX!
This is a fruit of the “Charleston Grey” variety, again, simply amazing…check back in another week, that fruit will weigh 50 lbs!
This is an “All Sweet” variety. They are usually the ones you see in your local grocery store from Mexico.
One of my county fair winners, if it lives that long.
A row of Arkansas Travelers.
A view of my bean tower, for my pinto beans. I thought they were bush beans, but they’re not.
An okra blossom, so pretty…and did I mention okra is DELICIOUS?
Cucumber love! Don’t you want it? Of course you do!!!
More cucumber love, just for you.
These here are pickling cucumbers. You should come over and learn how to do this with me. For real.
Our green beans are just now coming to fruition. What’s the date? Quick! Somebody.
Corn. Some harvested.
This is a “Healthy” variety of sweet red pepper. It’s like candy. You should try some.
Serrano peppers. Hot.
The view from above.
Previous compost area, now a melon/pumpkin patch…if it survives. DUH duh duhhhhhh.
Just stay tuned. I’m just as curious as you are.
