Garden Update-6-17-10

Our garden is coming along very nicely! I love it, its so cute accept for the haggard fence around it, but without that I don't think we'd have these beautiful plants. Here's a picture of the whole thing, the peas have grown up over the fence, the broccoli and brussel sprout plants are wild and huge. I had to trim some of the leaves off last night because they were shading my tomato plants. You can see the carrots over on the far back right,, lots of green but we picked one out last night and the actual carrot was teeny tiny so I guess we'll have to wait a while before we can enjoy those. My pepper plants are still pretty small, hopefully they'll hit a growth spurt soon! Here you can see the tomato plant with its yellow blooms on it.
And my lovely broccoli!

And much to my surprise last night as I was sitting there admiring my garden I noticed all these pea plants on the vine!!!! I was so excited I screamed, lol, they should be ready to pick in a couple days!


Yes, you read that right,,, I do sit in a chair and stare at my garden, haha,,, guess that's the country coming out in me. I think I remember Grandma and Grandpa Baldridge sitting and looking at their garden also. Little things amuse me easily. :)
