Garden Veggie Tales. . .

Our garden is providing a lot of enjoyment for us this summer. It's probably been at least 20 years since we planted our last garden.

Here's our harvest from this morning.
One cucumber, 3 bell peppers, 2 egg plants, & okra.

We're waiting patiently to pick ripe tomatoes & squash .
We have lots of baby squash &
green tomatoes right now.

If you look closely you will notice that our little rabbit friends have been munching on the leaves of our green bean plants.
That's okay, the bunnies need to eat too! LOL!

Our little friends have also eaten several leaves on the bottom of the sunflower stalks. Today I saw the beginnings of some flower blooms!

It's extremely hot today. In fact the forecast calls for temps of 100 or higher for the next 6 or 7 days.
Of course this means watering everyday.

Monday I'll show you my geraniums in the front yard.

What a wonderful garden and attitude toward the bunnies. You must be feeling very generous. :-)

Our things went in late and so are just beginning to be hopeful with the tiniest of tomatoes and peppers.

I am so jealous of your fantastic garden. I feel the same as you, rabbits need to eat too...just not the things I love! Lol
