While most right now in warmer regions are enjoying the first fruits and veggies of their hard work… some of us are still waiting.
It feels like a such a long process of waiting and tending and waiting and hoping, but seeing those tiny green tomatos sprouting and knowing that I started that seed under a grow light months ago makes you feel proud.
However, by seeing all of these wonderful crops.. I am also getting nervous. Mostly, because i want to be ready to harvest everything and can and preserve what I can’t eat, and THAT can also be a timely process, but so worth it in the end.
(Pictures from top then left to right)
1.) A view of the whole victory garden. Looking at this picture compared to two weeks ago… it is SO amazing the growth that has taken place.
2.) A view from the other side.
3.)Potato flowers. YES, you heard me. Those are flowers blooming on my potato plants. Aren’t they beautiful? And isn’t that interesting. I bet a lot of people don’t realize potato plants do that.
4.) Guard Owl and Broccoli!
5.) My bush beans and growing and growing! I saw some pods sprouting already!!!
6.) Those peppers are massive and they all grew out within the past week.
7.) Asiatic lilies I planted at my Mom and Dad’s house when I was a teenager and they are STILL coming back year after year.
Adventures in canning. Coming soon.
