Garden Scenes

You may remember back in the spring when I posted my attempts at starting garden plants from seeds, here and here. In the end, it didn't work. I'm not sure what when wrong but when it came time to move the plants outside they all shriveled up and died. Thanks to a trip to the garden center and a friend with a green thumb, and plants to spare, my garden is thriving.

I have been harvesting green beans for several weeks now. I am freezing batches every few days as I pick them.

The green and jalapeno peppers are looking so nice and are almost ready to pick.

Once the tomatoes are ready I'll be all set to make salsa.

I also planted carrots, parsnips, brussel sprouts, broccoli, spaghetti squash, pumpkins and sweet corn. There's nothing quite like growing and enjoying your own vegetables!
