Baby Goats Are Finally Here

Two baby girls. This is definately a girl year. We only had one buck kid. We definately know who the father of this one is. LOL!
All brown doe. So cute! Mama stopped labor when we went out the first time. Kind of people shy so we watched from the house until she had the first one. Didn't think she had a second since the first one was so big.

Marquee de Provence Pumpkins

This variety is so prolific I had to plant it again. 10 pumpkins or more on each plant last year and I just had to grow it again.
I really do love thier leaves too. Very patterned and heart shaped.

Tomato Plants and Beets

Tomato plants getting bigger.
Huge, looks like four blooms together. Maybe this will be my winning tomato, watch out idiggers. LOL!


I thought they would get ruined by the heat, but they seem to be doing ok and this week is supposed to be cooler. I will try to sell them all this week.

Lettuce and Corn

Corn is getting so tall already. Yummy!

Beans and Summer Squash

Beans are starting to flower. Yeah!
My ginormous squash plants.

With little baby zucchini on them. If you click on the picture you can see there is a beetle on it. Wasn't sure if it was a bad beetle and I needed to squish it or if it was a good one. I really need to study up more on my garden bugs.

Little itty bitty yellow crookneck squash.

Corn, Beans, and Squash

Corn is growing well. Yes, I know, weeds. Today or tom. they will be gone. Need to fertilize that row too. Weeded and fertilized the other row. ;-) It is a nicer day today. Nice breeze and definately cooler.
Jacob's Cattle beans. Looking good and just about to bloom.

Squash row is almost out of control. LOL! Plantwise atleast. We'll have zucchini and yellow crookneck coming out our ears soon.

Broccoli and Cucumber Plants

Broccoli. I hope it doesn't start bolting. Can't do much about it if it does though. Just eat it quick. LOL!
Straight 8 cucumber plants doing well.

James Found a Mud Hole

Uh oh, James found a mud hole in the garden. Something must be leaking. James had a blast getting his boots stuck in the mud. The strawberries are starting to produce. So far we haven't been able to bring any up to the house yet. ;-)
Mama trying to get James to look at the camera and smile. I think he thought he was getting away with something. He loved hosing his boots down afterwards. Mud is fun! ;-)

Thinned the beets today. Yum! I'm looking forward to making Luscious Beet and Beet Green Salad.
Harvested arugula, some baby greens and baby dino kale. Yum!

James and Baby Chick

Grandpa brought home 10 baby chicks the other day. James thought that was way cool. He asks to talk to said chicks atleast 6 times if not more a day. He says he likes the "dark" chick the best.

Woohoo! I am now officially Certified Naturally Grown. Yeah!

The Garden As Of May 14, 2009

Yes, some of that green is weeds. LOL! I'm in the process of weeding at the moment. ;-)
Pretty little "Rainbow" tomato. I can't wait to taste some of these tomatoes. I planted 67 plants. Is that enough? LOL!

The Garden as of 5/5/2009

It's starting to look a little green out there. ;-)


After 5" of rain this last weekend, its a bit muddy out there. We planted a row of sweet william, rudbeckia (my favorite), and snapdragon.
