Our Garden is Flourishing

Here are some pictures from around our place that I took yesterday.  We started getting torrential rains last night that didn’t stop until this morning.  I only hope it didn’t wash away our pinto bean seeds that we planted Sunday.

These first two pictures are sunflowers that are growing below the bird feeder.  We put a mixture of black oil sunflower seeds and then tiny seed too.  The birds knock the seed out and it falls in my flower pots and on the ground.  It grows !! The third picture down is wheat (?) that is growing from knocked out birdseed too.

The next picture is one of our strawberry plants with a blossom.  Hopefully a strawberry will be ready for picking soon.  We only planted 3 plants.  We really don’t expect more than a few strawberries per plant.  I will save them as they as harvested, put in a ziplock back in the freezer then have them with some whipped cream one night.

Watermelon is next in the photo gallery.  Watermelons are supposed to grow really well in sandy soil, so they should make a bumper crop here !

Next is a zucchini plant and we all know that they will make so many you have to force people to take some.  Big smile.  We DO love zucchini here at our house.

One last picture of one of our tomato plants.  We bought a few different varieties such as Beefsteak, Big Boy and then cherry tomatoes.  I will use my dehydrator to dry and store excess tomatoes in the freezer.

That’s it for today.  Hope you enjoyed.
