I know these photo posts are getting unnecessarily long, but just deal with it! I have a lot of life to document!

Garden 2013 - Week 11

There hasn't been a garden update in a while, but that isn't because I've been neglecting the garden.  I just forget to take pictures when there isn't much happening out there.  But things have started happening out there in a major way, so expect more frequent garden posts!

The sugar peas were under-performers this year - I only got enough of them to make single stir fry.  The carrots, on the other hand, are going nuts!

Carrots and cucumbers!
The green beans are small (probably because I am so bad at weeding), but they are still going strong. I think I'll get a good harvest soon.

Green beans and weeds!

I planted a tomato plant even though I don't like tomatoes.  I want to try making homemade tomato soup, which I DO like.

 I have a mystery vine growing out of the compost pile! I'm guessing it is either a cantaloupe or a spaghetti squash, but only time will tell.

I dug a new garden out in the way backyard for vine plants, and they are going nuts! I planted a pumpkin, a watermelon, a butternut squash, a zucchini, and two cucumbers. Here is the pumpkin and the watermelon:

I'm so excited about how well they're turning out!

I got some new shoes.  Life is full and beautiful and I spend as much time as I possibly can outdoors!
