Brr, Is it really July? The past 2 days we have had a 20 degree temperature drop! We had to go pick up a few cool weather outfits for this little one!
We had our bonus Granddaughter Raven for the weekend. For such a chunky baby I can’t get over the changes. She's growing so tall & slim! She had her hair cur for locks of love and the new cut really fits her personality
I was able to get some sewing done, a few diapers & covers finished. Most recycled fabrics for the diapers but a few new started
The Garden has been taking off like gang busters! Its pretty much recovered from the truck episode, not all the plants survived but what did is doing well. The green beans were replanted right before that happened and again after so both sets of those shoots are coming up and look great.
Looks like I will have quite a few green beans to put up this fall. I had my first pickings last night!
I’ll also have some Dragons Tongue “green Beans”this is my first year planting this heritage been and they are really producers. They have a bit of a sweetness to them. They start out as a white & deep purple streaked bean and lighten as they are exposed to sun
I intend to save most of these for seed so we will see how that goes
The tomatoes are …..coming along very slow, not seeing much growth at all. But, everyone else in our area has had the same issue. They are putting out 1-2 tomatoes…lots of blooms though.
We had on plant tomatoes plant left & no room in the garden, so I put it in the flower bed behind the garage. We call it the monster.
Its over 6 ft tall now….with one tomato on it! Again lots of blooms so we’ll se what happens
The cucumbers are producing faster than I can pick them. I see a batch of pickles being made this week, & the cantaloupe are not far behind. We have quite a few melons a week or so from picking.
In all I’m excited with how this garden has turned out. Its been a few years & I had not expected to see such good results.
So how was your weekend!
