Veggies are Ready!

It has been a hard season on our garden. A lot of seeds were washed away in our rains and floods. Then the weeds took over. And, when I say they took over, they really did. With some weeds at 7 foot tall, I had called the garden a loss, but Truckin' Man wasn't so easily discouraged. So, with his help, we got our garden back, and we are now pickin' some beautiful veggies! I couldn't be happier!

 The garden is a little smaller than it was in the beginning of the season, but at least it is under control!

 The Swiss Chard held on through it all. 
Now to find some recipes and try my new food of the season!

 Beautiful Green Bell Peppers!

 Call me weird, but I think this cabbage is beautiful!

 Cute little pan squash.

 The pumpkins are REALLY far behind, but hopefully they will be ready in time.

 My one and only spaghetti squash.

 The first tomatoes! So excited!

 The beans we replanted, are coming along nicely!

I hope that the growing season keeps going for many many weeks! No early frost this year, please!

  1. I think cabbage is beautiful as well! Congrats on your harvest! The spaghetti squash, swiss chard, and tomatoes look so yummy :)

  2. You are not weird, I think your cabbage is beautiful too. I hope you know I saw your url and got quite the giggle. My husband has a Peterbilt he uses for work and as for sugar cookies, you are speaking to me. Looking forward to checking up on you.

  6. Love the photographs of your vegetables! Beautiful!

  7. Oh Kris...I am so envious of your farm! Your veggies look so good and that cabbage IS beautiful! I'm so discouraged because I didn't realize I had to net my meyer lemon tree and the birds ate 30 small lemons leaving me with only 6! I can't seem to grow stuff on my deck for the squirrels and birds! Looking forward to seeing what you do with your harvest! : )
