Garden Update

Seems this blog has been focused on kids and their antics lately even though we are in the midst of prime gardening season. We have lots of tomato plants along with the usual squash, beans, lettuce, peppers, spinach and carrots. We had broccoli again this year which produced quite well. I pulled the broccoli plants a week ago since its getting too hot to produce nice heads and the large plants were shading my squash.

Just before pulling it out


We had a nice friend who gave us 9 heirloom tomato plants as a housewarming gift. We should have lots of tomato soup to put away for the winter.


Sean and I have been unloading and spreading mulch around the garden and flower beds the past few weeks. I hope the weeds slow down as a result.

We have quite a few raspberries on our plants and hope to be making jam in the next few weeks.
