If you're wondering what's keeping me busy these days- it's this- (and so much more)!
But it's the second most-wonderful-time-of-the-year for me!
Have a look-see from this morning:
|God is good to give me such a view!........I can hardly wait to jelly those nasturtiums!|
|This is my healthiest looking apple tree!|
|There are some rust spots on the leaves, but the apples are looking very nice.|
|If your zukes didn't come up- don't feel bad- this one is the only one so far.|
|Sugar snap peas growing up on a fence.|
|Yummy kale along with some green onions...some going to seed.|
|The cukes came up very nicely!|
|Beets are a little discolored but yummy.|
|Bean sprouts! Hooray!|
|Larkspur...but looks like hyssop, doesn't it? Anyone know the difference?|
|These leeks are flowering but they were over wintered so I had it coming! See the bright lights chard?..Oh and my garden notebook that I accidentally left out in the rain? Ugh!|
|This is what happens when you let your leeks go........|
|Not so bad, huh? But- they do smell like onions- not roses :)|
|I love these nasturtiums! I love to eat them straight from the gardens and in salads...but these..I'm saving for jelly!|
|My blueberry bushes are struggling but this one is the healthiest. Yummy!|
|The top left corner is for tomatoes, these are some new patches I'm working up for beans and more squash.|
|The firepit had sprouted tomato plants, so I dug them out! There are 2 figs, a pear tree, the corn garden, and willows here. Those willows are amazing! Wonderful shade and you can hide under them in the rain and climb in them if you're a kid!|
|Ah- and the grapes are something to write home about this year! They are doing very good! Not super full, but growing very good.|
|These are what I've been waiting for! They were this springs newbies. I am hoping to get a bunch at once and make jelly!|
|I love rosemary! Great in soups, or veggies, and on meat, but amazing in that herbal summer tea that I make!|
|This lemon balm has already given me jelly this year. So tasty! Great in fruit salads and herbal tea.|
|This is Kyler's pumpkin patch. He hopes to turn a few bucks out of this- I pray he does- and gives me his extras to puree and freeze for pies :)|
|My blurry blackberries. The wind was blowing and they just would not hold still!|
|Song of Solomon 2:1 I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.|
|This was hiding under the tiger lilies that are almost ready to bloom I brought this balloon flower in to put on the piano in a sleek goblet. Lovely! ...But I may have to try to move them since the tigers are covering them now.|
Hope you all are enjoying your summer- and God's beautiful creation!
