Green

With all of the rain we've been getting around here, everything is so green and lush, I can barely stand it! The mornings smell so crisp and clean and the air is supercharged with nitrogen from all the lightning. Things are growing like crazy! Witness ...

A Stella de Oro daylilly from my flowerbeds Zucchini, baby! Lots and lots of zucchini!

Oh my, the green beans...I LOVE the green beans!!

There they are...my first little tomatoes...

This is an eggplant plant. (haha). It doesn't look so good, at least in my mind. I've never grown eggplant before, so I can't be sure...but I'm pretty sure this frail-looking little plant can't support a big, bulbous eggplant!! I guess we'll see!

Ah yes...I can barely wait for the harvest! This year we planted a plethora of veggies...
  • Cucumbers (2 kinds)
  • zucchini
  • yellow squash
  • tomatoes (5 kinds)
  • Peppers (3 kinds)
  • watermelon
  • jack-o-lantern pumpkins
  • giant pumpkins
  • green beans
  • eggplant
We also finally saw fruit on our 2 cherry trees and our currant bush. I'd never had currants before, but Barry had to have them. I guess his Grandma had a currant bush, and he has very fond memories of eating them. Hey, I'm game for anything! And guess what, guys? It's almost raspberry and black raspberry season!!!! Mmmmmmmm....get ready for some yummy recipes!

Oh Kuckie, I am so jealous of your harvest...it all looks so delicious already and just imagining all the yummy food is enough to send me back into the kitchen in search of some kind of treat!!!!

I am so glad to read your summer has beena hit so far, it sounds like you guys are having a blast!!! Oh and that Hoopnotica...I am totally a sucker for any kind of fun weight loss idea so I might have to jump on board, let meknow how Sherri does, I'd like to know the truth before I buy!!!

when's dinner? ha!

things are really bloomin by you - congrats! I'm so jealous you get all of that space to garden. For me, it's just my three little pepper plants in a container garden, but I've gotta start somewhere, right?

too cute about the currant bushes. I love when guys show their sentimental side :)

The green beans from the garden are the best!
