7/1/2015 Update of My Garden

Hyssop, give me reason not to plant this? DH is suffering from mucus and congestion at night. I will sure try making tea tonight for him.


Indian/flint corn. Hopefully I can eat some this year. I can't wait.


Broccoli, I'm hoping to finally harvest some this year.


Loving my spinach that took forever to grow, but look at them now.


The same goes to my sweet basil. I thought I will be looking at them with a magnifying glass all year.


Onions, I put onions on everything, hahaha. I bought a $0.50 worth of onions. Hopefully they flowers and drop on the ground for an early start next year. I planted them in-between everything. Where-ever there's a space.

Happenings

May 27, 2015
Poor DH got all the hard work in our three days weekend. The first was very nice, it was a working nice day.


The second day was above, hotter than before but not too bad.


The third day, DH was putting the fence around my small garden. The big garden will not be use for vegetables. He change his mind because our children keep asking for a swimming pool. He will get a permit to put it up in the lower part of this yard. We have to run electricity and water there. Of course the township will need to come inside our house to see how we connect them.


Small blueberries bushes, however they already have fruits.


Bigger blueberries. Rain is very stingy this time of year for us. The ground is very dry. I have to water my garden and fruits trees every day.


This vine is a red grape, I have another one that is not in the picture.


Close-up of blueberries. I forgot to take a picture of the apples and peaches. The deer almost finish one peaches leaves, they even ate the small fruit on it. Hopefully DH can put the deer netting this afternoon when he gets home early.
