Garden update

Whew - crazy week with John's birthday and my first Achievement Days here(it went great, and I totally caught a greased pig - 3rd place for adult women! =)).

Got some pictures of the garden yesterday evening...



An overall picture - the Brussel Sprouts got eaten up, so we're not sure they're going to work out, and something has eaten/killed the base of the zucchini plant (so we may only get one zucchini).

Otherwise everything else it doing its thing. We haven't been home to cook so there's a pile of veggies on the counter inside (and a huge amount waiting to be picked and brought in). I looked at the green beans, but decided I didn't even want to go there (guess I'll have to today)



Not red yet - but close. John also has a habenero that's finally turning orange (one of the million that we have growing!) and two red cayennes.



He also got stakes for the tomatoes - so now they're not quite so tangled up and crazy.

What? I want to hear more about catching a greased pig! Why are there no pictures of that???

Hehe I'm not sure there are any pictures - but they have a greased pig contest at our 4-H days and I decided to try it out. Luckily they were little pigs (and the one I went for didn't run off)...managed to pick it up and run back across the ring. I got third in the group of adult women =) I'm hoping that someone got a picture, maybe it'll surface next week

Your garden seems to look well organized and clean. Your cherry tomatoes are yummy in the pictures. I also want to see some picture in catching a greased pig. Congrats for that.

hey, I love the tomatoes! They are super ready for harvest! For me, those tomatoes will go straight to my pan and become salsa for my hotdogs! YUMMY! Oh. The bad thing is that the weather is kinda making it hard for my tomatoes to gain size!
