Harvest Time!

Well this year's garden has been amazing! We put a big 'ol fence around it this year to keep out the local critters...I don't mind sharing but they can be a bit pushy! ;o)
I don't recall if I planted my punkin's a little early, but the stems are browning and I had to get them hauled outta there because the march of the squash bugs are getting pretty bad. Bleck. I have this one punkin' who has taken it upon itself to grow into a monster. My husband built a little hammock for it to help keep it from breaking off too early.

This is during the summer, everything's all green....

And here was yesterday....

So we weighed it. 
Wasn't as heavy as I remember even a month ago, I think those pesky squasher's were sippin' on my big baby!
22.4 lbs.! 

And a family photo

Sadly those bugs killed off at least a half dozen of their kin :o{

This guy was also 39" around and 15" tall, not counting the stem.

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!
