Itty Bitty green pepper and Ginormous zuccs

How do you shorten zucchini properly? Zuck? (that sounds like duck) Zook? Maybe, looks alien though. I'll stick with zucc until I get a professional opinion. Anywho, I bring you: one tiny green pepper: He needs eyes I think. 2 of…

I'm not a heartless pepper killer!

Months ago, I started green peppers inside. I transplanted many outside and they survived but I planted them in a bad spot and while alive, they weren't growing. Instead of completely giving up on them, I moved them yet again to a good spot…

The bees and the squashes and the corn

Notice: The weeds are taking over. Ignore them and don't think too badly of me ;) I don't have enough time to keep them in check lately! I've noticed a lot of bee life in the garden, and managed to get a couple photos of them helping me out... With…

Baby pumpkins

We have some pumpkins, just from the hybrid "Prizewinner" plant. This little guy has the potential to grow to 900 lbs. Won't that be a treat for the new owners of the house to deal with :eat I didn't know that pumpkin vines send down…

Redneck Pole Sprinkler

The soaker hoses got completely nixed. This is my latest high tech invention and does a much better job of making happy plants:

Corn Porn

I'm gonna kick myself for using "that word" when the google ads turn nasty, but I couldn't pass it up :lol I cannot wait for fresh corn on the cob! Corn sugar starts turning to starch as soon as it's picked so the fresher the corn is,…

Fail

Some things I've learned I don't grow well. Me or the soil, I'm not sure, but I'll try again next year if our new place has the space. Rosemary, from seed...planted twice, nothing grew. I tried watering with the rest of the herbs and watering…

Still here

Not much to say...very busy with non gardening stuff! The garden is still doing great, I have about 6 or 7 zucchini , 2 summer squash, a bazillion tomato flowers but still no fruit (what's up with that?), the corn is waist high, the remaining…

Efforts rewarded

I thought it might be a good idea to check out the taters that were getting flooded over and over. The bottom 4 plants, the ones at the end of the line so to speak that keep getting the most water, got pulled up last night and turned into dinner.…

4th of July and changes ahead

Gonna fire up the grill this evening and make some typical summer holiday food, nothing special. I make a killer potato salad, I sure wish the taters in the garden were ready! I might try to pay attention to my "recipe" and write it down to…

Beans and other photos

Here's the green bean pictures, I found 3 more on the other plant. They're so cute!! And some more pictures from around the garden, please excuse the weeds, they are trying to take over!: Zucchini on the right, summer squash in…

I died.

Really. When I saw the thermometer in my van and it said 106F, I died. Thankfully the a/c brought me back. Well, maybe not so much, it's still 80 degrees inside my house at 11pm and I'm miserable. I'm sure I sound melodramatic, but I tend to…
