Sometimes the girls will approach on their own.
The garden is huge! We planted green beans, purple hull peas, squash, zucchini, okra, cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, roma tomatoes, bell peppers, cayenne peppers, pablano peppers, chili peppers, jalapeno peppers, corn, canteloupe, potatoes, carrots, black berries, dill, rosemary, thyme, parsley and mint. Did I mention our garden was huge?
Unfortunately, the green beans didn't do too well. The purple hull peas did well, and we got enough for 1 dinner. The okra, LOVES us. It has produced a plethora of pods. Peppers are doing well, also and the tomatoes are drowning us. The corn has produced well---once we managed to chase off the birds that ate the first planting. Oops. The herbs haven't done too well, so we are planning on something different next year. The squash has produced pretty well, but not the zucchini. We definitely have learned a lot from this first year, and we did get some produce to show for it!
We have 14 jars of salsa, 6 jars of tomatoes, and 9 jars of peaches. (Of course, the peaches didn't come from our garden...this year.)
Now, off to make some zucchini bread!
