What's Going on in the Garden

Here's a look at what's going on around the garden and yard here. I actually didn't plant that much, the morning glories, pumpkins, gourds, and many of our tomatoes are all coming up from seeds dropped in gardens and beds and compost pile last year.

We have so much pokeweed, or as it's sometimes called Joe Pye or inkberry, coming up around the yard, I once seriously considered naming our place "Pokeweed Farm". There it is, springing up around the old bathtub.

  1. Wow, your crop is looking delicious! The tomatoes, especially. Nothing like home grown, is there? Thanks for sharing all your veggies with us, I'll be over for dinner.

  2. Your harvest is bountiful! And the other flora and fauna are luscious too! It is so hot here we are struggling to keep things alive...our tomatoes are finally ripening though!
