I have a garden update on how well my remote garden is growing. I know that I have mentioned it before, but I have not take any photos of it this year.
We were able to pick about 5 quarts of black raspberries. They were just coming ripe and now they are at peak.
The Hubs had just freshly tilled between the rows of green beans, which were looking good. The remote garden has been such a saving grace. I am too embarrassed of what the green beans in the home garden look like to even show a picture. Poor germination, yellowing leaves and overtaken by grass. These babies are doing great. Plenty to harvest to eat fresh and to freeze for winter.
He also tilled around the pumpkins and squash. The vine crops are off to a great start too.
The cucumbers are loving their happy home under the black plastic.
The peppers are looking great and have lots of small fruits as they grow along side the beans.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
I spotted this amazing spider web sight when I glanced out the window. Later, without the morning dew, it was not nearly as impressive or imposing.
We can see developing tomatoes along with oodles of blossoms.
Check out this super heavy duty hose cart the Hubs ordered. Aesthetically, it is not so great, but can be wheeled out of sight quite easily. It is super functional when you have 300 feet of hose to wrangle. It came from AM Leo and if it is as good as every other tool that we have purchased from them, it will serve us well for some time. (Seriously, check them out. I am in no way getting compensated for this endorsement.)
I am eager to start eating all of this tasty produce. Then when we are overwhelmed, the food preservation will begin. This weekend I am going to make jelly and jams. The deep freezer needs a thorough cleaning and defrosting, so I will get to that as well. We also plan on tilling up those awful green beans and plant a fall crop along with peas. I so want peas. We did not get this veggie garden started early enough for spring crops this year.
