It has been gloriously warm for the last few days. All of the snow we had, that was trapped beneath a solid layer of ice, is gone, gone, gone!
I’m not sure about you, but I’m really not a big fan of winter. I know it’s necessary and God created winter for a reason, but sometimes [...]
Do you remember this post and my gigantic pumpkins? Well, today was the day I tackled some of the preserving.
We had a regular size pumpkin from a pumpkin patch we visited and our 2 ginormous pumpkins. I chose to take care of the two smaller ones today (and we’ve since decided to sell [...]
Okay folks. Here’s the scoop on the pumpkin who has been affectionately named Lt. Col. Pumpkin. It’s an inside-joke-thing!
Here’s what the pumpkin looked like on August 24.
Soon after that photo the leaves near the beginning of the plant started dying so I knew it only had a few more weeks before we would [...]
Remember this garden post where I told you about my “squash”. Ha! Well, it really is a pumpkin after all. Just look at it!
This was taken on 8/17. Please disregard the crying 3 year old who DID NOT want to take a picture with the pumpkin!
And this was [...]
I thought it was time I give you all an update on my garden. The following photos were taken about a week ago and everything is a bit bigger now.
* In the back, on the far left and just left of center (the tallest plants) are all tomatoes. This year I started them [...]
Here is a photo of what my garden looked like 2 days ago:
First row (starting in the back):* 3 tomato plants* 2 pumpkin (don’t know what kind b/c Eli planted these in a cup at preschool and they actually came up so I transplanted them) – however one of them already has a bloom on [...]
The tomatoes are taking over!!! That’s OK though, because they’re producing wonderfully. There is a Roma behind these 2 massively, large plants that isn’t fairing so well. I think it’s about done.
Then there’s the Cherry Tomato (the one nearest the fence) and it probably has 75 or more tomatoes on it right now and [...]
My first harvest from my Colorado garden is a pretty Roma tomato. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but it’s about 2.5 inches tall and just looks oh so yummy! I’m going to partake of this beauty with my lunch tomorrow and I think that even if it’s the most disgusting tomato I’ve ever [...]
~1~ The new garden is going fairly well. I’m not sure what’s going on with the strawberries (they’re almost goners), but everything else seems to be thriving!
I have several tomatoes that should be ready in a couple of weeks! They looks so yummy already, now if they’d just hurry up and start ripening…..
Let me just start off by saying that I have an AMAZING husband!! He’s wonderful!!
This is how our space started out. Don’t let the photo fool you, it’s pretty large, 7.5′ x 10′. And yes those are rocks, gazillions of them. They actually ended up being deeper than I originally thought. They were probably about [...]
