The veggie garden is something that I leave for my husband to tend, for the most part. But this year our garden was quite fruitful, so I thought I'd share our gardening success with everyone. Kinda like when your relatives make you watch their vacation movies.
Watermelon & Cantaloupe
There's about 8 watermelons and 9 cantaloupes on the vines at this point. If I remember correctly, the watermelon are the small round seedless variety.
Just about ready!
... and Cherry Tomatoes too!
I'll be canning some maters as there are way too many for us to eat up before they go bad!
The corn is almost ready too. We'll yield about 20 ears.
And just for fun, some gourds. About 11 of them. I'll make bird feeders and hanging planters out of them for the yard and patio.
Green Seedless Grapes
This vine produced big time last year, but I'm not sure how it will fare after our big freeze we had this winter. Time will tell.
You will note that there is no zucchini in our garden. That is because we hate zucchini and all of it's little squashy friends. You can grow it.
Here's a couple of pics of other parts of the yard.
Alas, we now have neighbors directly behind us. It's a good thing my girlfriend Barbara overbought when she was landscaping her backyard and she was sweet enough to give us her extra bamboo plants. It's starting to fill out quite nicely, but will probably still be another year before we see a 'screen' benefit to shield us from the neighbor's back windows.
Assorted yard plants
And that be our veggie garden and a peek at our yard. We still have a lot of landscaping to do ~ like finish the fish pond ~ but it's getting there. I just have to keep that hubby motivated and moving LOL!!
