Hey guys! Just took a quick walk through my garden to see if anything was ready for picking and I think I found some blue ribbon material! Feast your eyes upon my enormous zucchini! It’s currently a little over 2 feet long and heavy! I’ve never seen one this big and I’m on the lookout for a competition to enter!
I also have some tomatoes, green beans, corn, bittermelon, cilantro and chives ready to be picked!
Here are a couple roses that went a little crazy after months and months of no rain. We finally had 3 days of showers!
I hope your gardens are doing well! Happy growing! 🌱🌹🌿🌺
My lemon tree is totally covered with lemons and no matter how many neighbors I share with or random people I meet on the street *don’t you judge me!*… I just can’t seem to use these bright yellow babies up fast enough!
Soooo I’ve decided to make every lemon recipe I have plus a few new ones! So be on the lookout for lemon bars, lemon meringue, lemon brownies, lemon chicken, lemonade *spiked of course* and many more!
Also if you have any lemon recipes please send them my way!
Ahhh spring is coming! I can smell it in the air! I’ve already started weeding and pulling out the last of my cilantro, lettuce, carrots, onions and garlic.
This weekend I plan on adding crushed eggshells *great source of calcium! especially for tomatoes and peppers* and some fertilizer to get the soil ready for my new seedlings, which I also have to start indoors.
Then I’ll have the hubs till the soil *don’t tell him he doesn’t know yet 😁*. I’ll probably have to bribe him with some sort of treat to get him working! MEN!! Geez!
Here are a few pics of my garden from last year. I planted pretty much everything! Corn, tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, sugar snap peas, long beans, okra, bell pepper, habaneros, jalapeños, pimentos, chives, onions, cilantro, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower and the list goes on! I grow more than my family can eat and I give bags of fresh veggies to the neighbors 🙂
There’s such a sense of satisfaction when you can grow your own food from seeds! Plus the kids love being a part of the process and watching the plants get bigger everyday. They actually like eating veggies more, now that they play a part in the growth.
