Our Garden is Growing

Grenville set up the much smaller F&P veggie garden near the end of May planting doubles of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and cucumbers. While this is not a lot compared to previous years output of squash, beans, corn, beets, and lettuce, these veggies will be more than enough. They'll be supplemented with contributions from a friend’s larger garden, drop-offs that local gardeners leave at the  YMCA, and purchases at a couple of area farmers markets.

This week, we have one green pepper with others on the way. There are blooms on the eggplant (center), tomato (upper right) and cucumber (bottom right) plants.

Grenville is sure looking forward to some fresh 'mater sandwiches soon. I saw him standing in the garden with bread and mayo in hand this week.

The green pepper caught my eye. It sure looks nicely formed. The best tomatoes are ones freshly picked from your own garden.

Thank you for visiting my wordpress blog. You and Grenville should visit Niagara Falls!

Nice looking green pepper. There's just nothing like home-grown produce. We don't have a garden, but our neighbor right behind us does, and they share!!

Looks like everything is doing well! There's nothing better than fresh from the garden.

The garden looks to be doing well.

what a pretty pod the eggplant created. Love the pink.

Looks like you will have some good eatin' soon.

My neighbor has some tomatoes growing on the side of her house, they are finally truning red.

BUT I found a sweet produce stand near our church so I have been there several times stocking up on maters and vidalia onions... So I have had my fill of mater' sandwiches.

Hope you have a good coming weekend.

You are so lucky that Grenville planted such a nice garden. Looks like you will be having a nice harvest!

Almost time for a salad!

Everything looks good! You'll have plenty of produce before long.
