What a Great Harvest!

Wow have we been blessed with a great harvest so far! The garden is exploding with tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, onions, zucchini and green beans.

We have been busy picking everything, making pickles and salsa, and freezing green beans. My daughters have been great about picking and snapping the beans.

We have been having a lot of fun with the harvest. We are still waiting on the corn and melons, but everything else has been doing well. The only thing not doing well are the carrots. We allowed the cantaloupe to take over the carrot and radish beds because I never put up the trellis that I was planning to build.

I hope your gardens are doing well. Sorry that I haven't posted in over a month. I have much to tell you and lots of pictures. I will try to get back to posting often. I want to tell you about what happened with the baby robins, and how the tomato supports have done. I have some interesting bugs to show you, some funny canning stories and much more. Check back frequently! Until then, blessings to you all.



It was a pleasure to have a few minutes to read your web pages!
I live in Mi and have been gardening/living organic for about 11 years now.
I was rather blessed to see the pics that you were able to get they were all great! I enjoy wildlife weather pest or friend.
I have preying mantis and lady beetles and lacewing,along with toads,frogs and birds one kind being hummers.I was hesitant for years to have all because they can eat each other, so I just make certain they all have a happy home and trust God will protect those he wishes.I cant wait to find the sacs of the PMantis'.
Thanks again and if I think of it when I have a moment I'll visit you again.
All the best and was really encouraged to see there is yet another fun curious gardener.
Again..excellent shot oh,dont know who the black with red bug is (sorta looks like the milkweed bug)

Have a Great Day Outddors!
