Borlotti bean are looking great.
Coco and Dixie our dogs love the fresh vegetables and fruit as well.
Lettuces and spinach are doing great. The second batch we planted is just coming up right now.
These are two pictures taken at different times of the tomatoes. It shows how much they have grown. The tomato plants are bursting at the seams with tomatoes.
The peas have just went crazy. We have harvested 12 lbs of Mangold(chard) and 5 Lbs of spinach today. We gave some to three different neighbors. I had to laugh because the men had no idea what mangold was and all the woman did. I told my husband to ask the woman not the men because I knew that would be the case. He was surprised how excited all the woman were to have some and all of them knew how to use it.
We picked our first red tomato yesterday. We finally have succeeded with tomatoes. Hurrah!! We picked the first peas yesterday. We are tickled pink at the harvest we are seeing right now. We are going to have a large assortment of vegetables stored for winter. Gardening doesn’t get better than that.
