Remember the post of our yard and garden plans,
and this post updating how our plants were coming?
Well we are having lots of fun and seeing that you really can grow A LOT of food in not much space. We can't wait until everything is more mature. But so far we are getting quite a bit of food! These pictures were taken 2 weeks ago and with all the rain everything is growing FAST! Including the weeds! ;) We'll get out and get more pictures soon, but for now enjoy these! We still have lots of work to do to make it just how we want but we are so excited how everything is coming along!
Our first handful of Strawberries. There has been quite a few handfuls since these!
Beets! I love the Beet greens for steaming and Green Smoothies.
And the beets for Smoothies and Pickling!
Pole Beans we love this recipe and hope to have lots of beans to make it with!
Zucchini! Lots of plans for this, this, this and many other things!
Oh tomatoes can't get better than homegrown!
My favorite uses for them are here, here, here, and Me and Missy love to just eat them right off the vine!
Romaine, our favorite leafy green for salads!!!
The Peppers have had a slow start but they are much bigger now and I think they will do pretty well!
Sauerkraut which I have figured out how to make without any problems! ;)
Peas! There are peas all over our vines and we are munching them down!
Kale! It goes in Green Smoothies and we love these!
Our Blackberry Bush, is a beast we watch it grow and it tries to attack us on our porch!
Branches literally grow overnight!! We have to put on our armor to train it back to where it goes, because of all the thorns! But oh the berries are soooo good, like blackberry pie in each fresh picked bite! These all get ate up but if there ever gets to be more than we can eat they will for sure be frozen for smoothies!
Yarrow! Just one of my favorite medicinal herbs! Great for bleeding, fevers, and bug spray!
I wouldn't be an herbalist if I didn't love this little guy!
Of course we have much more then we need! ;)
But if you can't beat 'em join 'em, right!
Wonderful liver tonic/cleanser, blood purifier and great source of minerals!!!
The Raspberries and Blueberries are younger then the Blackberries, but we have high hopes for them too!
Well there's a quick little tour of our garden. That wasn't all of it and it's still a work in progress! But I'll continue to share in our gardening journeys! How is your garden coming?
