Thanks in advance for stopping by to see my vegetable garden this evening!
As you walk into the raised bed garden area, you’ll see some Coreopsis ‘Moonbeam’ growing at your feet. I refuse to call it Tickseed because “ticks” and “flowers” shouldn’t be in the same thought!
This is going to be my best year ever for grapes.
I haven’t written much about tomatoes because I feel like mine are later than usual this year and I’m not even “in the game” for the earliest tomato contest.
But when I harvest that first red tomato, there will be a big post about it, I promise, because it is an event whether early or late!
My green beans are blooming.
This year the rabbits won’t get all the bean plants. I really do think I scared the main bunny away last Sunday with my little trapping episode.
I’ve got fancy squashes growing, too. This is a variety called ‘Cue Ball’.
I think it will be like zucchini, only round. I also have lots of zucchini but I didn’t take a picture of it because you all have seen zucchini before. If you want some of my extra zucchini, just let me know.
I did take a picture of the spaghetti squash vines.
There aren’t really growing up that tower, they are more growing through it.
And what have we here? The bane of my vegetable garden, purslane.
This weed can ruin your life, if you let it. But I won’t let it ruin my life or my garden. I’ve been weeding it out as I can and throwing it in the trash. DO NOT put this in your compost bin. Any tiny piece can sprout into a new plant, even a one celled piece it seems. Listen to me, I have experience with this weed. I have made the mistake of putting it in the compost bin. And yes, I know it is edible, lots of vitamins, but it is still a weed in my garden and I’m not going to eat it. However, the rabbits may eat as much of it as they want!
If you were here for real, I’d go get some trash bags now so you could help me weed out more purslane, and you’d help me, wouldn’t you?
