Garden Update

The garden’s a-growin’ and I just get more excited every time I walk out to see it! I have a few ripe tomatoes, several tomatoes ripening, corn growing, cantaloupes getting bigger, it’s just wonderful!!

Ripe Cherry Tomatoes!

Growing Sweet Corn

My biggest Cantaloupe

Surprise Romas! I only planted Beefsteak & Cherry Tomatoes but I’m excited about the Romas!


My First Tomato

Yesterday I picked my very first Cherry Tomato! This is the very first tomato I have ever grown. After finding it ripe, it didn’t last long!

 

The First Green Beans

Snapped & ready to cook!

Bountiful Harvest and Blessings

We have been abundantly blessed with produce the past few weeks!

Friends from church gave us a huge bag of corn which we cut of the cob and froze 9 12-ounce bags of whole kernel corn! When my parents came last week they brought blackberries, tomatoes and purple hull peas and when my Grandma came to visit my sister in the hospital she brought me more tomatoes! And, to top all of this off, we picked our first bell peppers!

It has been so much fun to watch our produce grow and such a blessing to receive from the abundance of friends and family!

This is what I have preserved thus far (minus the corn):
 4- 2 cup bags of blackberries from my grandparents farm
 Peppers from my garden!!
 Sliced peppers ready to freeze

 

 5- 1 cup bags of sliced bell peppers
5 pints & 1 jelly jar tomato juice
3 quarts & 1 pint tomatoes
