A Garden Update

We've had some decent rain over the past few weeks and things are taking off like gangbusters!
I'd love to show you a picture of our tomato plants, but they are resembling an amazon at the moment!

But check this out - my Copra onions are BULBING!
I am seriously excited about this!

Here is one side of our Cucumber patch and some of our beans.
The wooden trellis in the background has Black Turtle Beans at the bottom of it.

This is our 'Squash' garden this year.
From left to right, Bush Acorn Squah, a Zucchini and Yellow Squash.
Then, what you can't see to the right are some pepper plants and some broccoli plants - broccoli which will probably get ripped out because 1.) I think it bolted on us and 2.) the hens had a feast on the leaves!

Some Basil in a 'pot' with the herb garden behind it.

And of course, a photo of the apple crop :) They are coming along!

How is your garden growing?
We are about done with our Alaska Shelling Peas. As we pick the last few pods off each section, we rip out the section and throw it to the hens - they LOVE it!!

Everything looks great! I wish I had proper space for large squash other than zucchini and summer squash.

Loving those apples. We have two one year old apple trees in our small yard, hopefully we'll get some fruit this coming summer.

Everything looks healthy and happy! Your basil is huge! Ours is still itty bitty!
