Keewee's veggie patch is starting to produce
What is there not to like about a lovely healthy garden such as this one? I do believe I have finally learned how to care for a veggie garden and 'I am tickled pink!'
Outside looking in.
Grace, this one is for you. My first Sunsugar tomato. Granted it is only the size of a medium sized pea, but will grow fast now the weather has warmed up.
Clematis climbs each side of the arched entrance to the veggie garden, and the basket is planted with hen & chicks.
Peas, beets, lettuce, scarlet runner beans and kale share this raised bed.
My very first teeny tiny squash of the season.
Burgundy bush beans, kale, parsnips, peas, gourds, and some flowers share this bed.
Scarlet runner beans climbing towards the top of the trellis in front of the pea patch.
Lots and lots of lovely peas. I am going to be very busy during the next few weeks, harvesting and processing these beauties.
The very first harvest of shelling peas of the season. There were enough peas for one good sized portion for both of us, and some were eaten right there as I stood in the garden.
I am so happy with the strawberries we have this year. So far we have had many desserts, made a batch of freezer jam, frozen several bags full, and this tray of berries will be frozen in a free flow state. I estimate I have picked 10lb or more berries so far, and hope to have enough to make another batch of jam, and freeze some more to enjoy during the gray days of winter.
