Some Veggie Pics

We took a walk thru the garden tonite.....here's a few pics. I am already falling behind on weeding and mowing lawns....but we have been doing some fishing. That has been fun!!!

A few of the flower containers on the porch.....










The main veggie garden as seen from the porch.....the row covers are protecting beans.








Potatoes that need to be hilled, and weeded too!









Swiss chard coming up














Spinach













Cabbages










They haven't missed a beat. Unreal how well they grow up here!!










Beans (which have grown so much in the last 2 days, it has astounded us!)












Onions with peas in the background
Virginia Creeper seems to have settled in. I am hoping it grows up the trellis at the barn, I think it will look nice to see it from the house!












In the Animal Garden....field peas nicely weeded on the left.....the rutabagas, etc, not so nicely weeded on the right!


After looking around the gardens, we put all the animals in for the night.
Then I looked up and saw this.....

Your potatoes are sure a lot bigger than mine! I didn't see any garlic. Garlic is so satisfying to grow as it comes up first thing in spring and makes it look like you really have things growing in your garden! We feel it helps keep the deer away too.

does your day have more then 24 hours in it like mine? How do you find the time to do all that garden and animal taking care of?

Hi Cicero...yup we have garlic planted. I think the pic is in the post below the one I am responding too...

we Love Garlic!

Krissy, it's definitely a very busy time of year. spring keeps us running all season long. But, we get lots of "down" time in the Winter, to recuperate!
