Garden Update

Our garden is doing so well.  I am almost don’t want to talk about it, afraid I might jinx it.

Image

Banana pepper…we also have some jalapeno and bell peppers.

Image

Cucumbers are just starting….can’t wait for them so I can try my hand at making pickles.

Image

Butternut squash….

Image

Spaghetti squash….this one took me by surprise.  All the other squash are still pretty small and then there is this one.  Very exciting.

One Week’s Difference

What a difference one week can make!  Our garden is loving the current weather trend.  We have been having really muggy, humid and warm days with scattered thunderstorms daily. All the plants are thriving but the zucchini plant has really outdone itself.

This is our zucchini plant on May 25th.

This is the same plant on June 3rd. 

Overachievers

Image

One of our pepper plants decided it was time to produce a pepper.

Image

Our cherry tomato plant has several little green tomatoes on it.  Can’t wait for them to ripen so I can eat them!

Getting Ready

Getting ready to plant our garden.  Hopefully we will be able to put out our plants out the next week or so.

Smoothies

I have decided to start drinking smoothies for breakfast.  

Image

I have been mixing fruit, spinach, almond milk, protein powder and chia seeds.  I had very low expectations, but was delightfully surprised with how good they taste.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
