How Does Your Garden Grow?

Thought I'd share a few pics of this year's veggie garden.
For years 'n years I great great big 'ol gardens to feed my family, then canned the surplus.
As my kids got older and left the house, life changed and I thought I'd try my hand at container gardening. For me - it was a huge bust. After 3-4 years of trying different things, I gave up and told my husband I was going back to a bigger garden. Not as much as I used to, but bigger than I have for quite awhile.
And - I'm - Loving - It!

Since there's tons of wild life around here, I knew I needed a fence now....

While I was out picking more zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers and peppers today I snapped a few more pics....


Mini punkin's...

Tons of blooms on my big punkins...

I've already gotten a few Roma tomatoes, waiting on my big guys to redden' up now!

Spaghetti Squash..



Pear and Apple trees are doing pretty well so far too!

I've been working on my home made Million Dollar Relish and it's finally getting close to canning time. Hope your gardens are doing well my friends!

Cathching my breath........

It's been a little busy around here, and I'm hoping things will start to slow down to their normal frenzy.  ;o) 

Last Saturday my youngest son, 3rd of 3 kiddos, married the love of his life. It was so beautiful and emotional. Oh my gosh, even 2-3 days afterward we all still felt drained! LOL
God is SO good! I sent 3 youngun's out there and they all came back with Godly people to spend the rest of their lives with.
Amen and Amen!

In the meantime, my garden is not waiting on me and I'm getting the zucchini and squash.. and will be picking green beans by tomorrow! That and a few new potatoes are what's for dinner in our very near future baby! 

I'm also trying to work on some Early Works goodies...
that time will be here before I know it!

~ Have a great day my friends ~
