Weekly Garden and Harvest Update 6/2-6/9

Okay. I’ve been a bad garden blogger the past month (and I haven’t even kept the journal up either). I’ve just gotten busy and on top of that, I was sick one week *excuses, excuses*. But! I’m back now and ready to roll. We’ve been picking a few May Peas everyday the last few weeks, but I think that the harvest is over for that. Mom picked some small yellow crookneck squash last week which we ate for supper this past Sunday (cooked with bacon grease and onions – yum). Other than that, I’ve been trying to take weekly pictures of the garden so mom and I can look back at the end of the season. I won’t bore you with that. Instead, I’ll just start back with this past week.

Harvested:

– 5 small crookneck squash
– Small Tupperware bowl of blueberries
– 2 jalapenos
– Handful of May Peas

Mom cleared the old strawberry bed today, leaving plenty of room for my sugarcane to grow. We'll be planting some more squash, cucumbers, and zucchini soon.

This was supposed to have been a cherry tomato plant, according to its label. Guess not!

Already our cucumbers are doing better than they did last year.

Ziggy is so glad that I have let the asparagus go to fern - it is his little hiding spot!

Our yard is full of gorgeous daisies in a whole range of colors, like this pink one.

This upcoming Thursday, I’m going to have a photo recap post for the month of May so that you can check out what else I’ve been doing in my blogging absence.
