The Garden as of 6/18/2009 ;-)

It's growing. LOL! Now that the corn is so high you can't see anything else. Oh well.
Grapes are coming on.

Corn, looks like it will start ripening next week.

Tomato plants. Really need to get them staked. LOL! I just don't know if I can swing the 50lb post driver myself for very long.

The Garden as of 6/18/2009

Marquee de Provence pumpkin plants growing big.

Lots and lots of carrots. I think they needed to be harvested last week. Oh well, whatcha gonna do. Life happens. LOL!

This is What Happens Sometimes. LOL!

When life gets busy. You get the massive zucchini. LOL!

Lettuce Wraps Recipe

Link is in title. Could not get it to paste. Looks yummy though. So excited!

My Other Job. LOL!

So, this is my other project. Putting in the garden for the neighbors. It won't be too bad once I get the watering on timers. Then I will only be planting every two weeks and weeding every week. Going to get irrigation in on Monday. I'm just glad Dale (the ranch manager) tilled, rowed and put a 1/3rd of the compost in. Whew! Atleast I have the little john deere to help me bring in the compost. Bringing my dad's tractor over there and hooking up the auger and put in holes for the tomato amenities like I did for mine. Won't be so bad after everything is put in. ;-) Oh, and kept myself entertained by listening to car talk and wait, wait, don't tell me on NPR. :-D

Beet Chips

Just found a recipe for beet chips. Oh man that sounds good. Going to go fire up the dehydrator. Yum!

Veggies Ready For Market

Beautiful lettuce. Everyone has been talking about my lettuce at market. How nice it looks. Definately a confidence booster. LOL! It's so yummy. Saving that one head on the left for making lettuce wraps. Yum!
Beets! Everyone loves the beets too. Too bad its going to be too hot for beets in the coming weeks. Can't wait to plant again in July and August. Yum! Had beet and beet green salad last night. One of my favorites!

James loves to pet the baby chicks.
And the new baby goats are fun to pet too.

Mama and babies are doing very well. Sally is a good mom.
