In this section we have a couple of zucchini plants, a row of strawberries and a row of peppers. In the boxes in the background are carrots, lettuces, and sweet peas.
Here is one head of lettuce. We have others of different varieties. We planted the tomatoes latter than the lettuce so we have just been having very yummy lettuce only salads.
These are my husband’s pride and joy. This is the first time we have grown peppers and I think they are growing very nicely.
My kids LOVE strawberries and can easily eat a pint each, every hour, which is why we have about 20 strawberry plants (half of which are covered by nets in an unsuccessful attempt at keeping the robins from eating them)
Here is 1 of the zucchini plants (I think 4 plants in all grew). I foresee lots of zucchini bread in our future.
On the other side of our yard are the loganberry bushes (my family’s favorites) which are just starting to ripen. If I am able to pick enough for a loganberry cobbler I will post that recipe. It is a family recipe that even I can make. ;-) My children are getting very use to have fresh picked berries with their breakfasts every morning. Here are a few of the golden raspberries that my daughter picked (which actually made it into the bowl) to add to her and her brother’s oatmeal.
Hey, do you want some sweet peas? How about a zucchini? (or 7)
