It's going to be a colorful harvest.

Just another week or two and the veggie garden is going to be in full swing. I have been harvesting a handful of green beans every day for more than a week. Today, I picked the first tomato of the season and the first of our purple hull beans.

Today's bounty

Mint, onions from The Boss Lady's Grandma,

Dill, sage, green beans and lots of tomatoes

Escaping tomatoes!

My baby watermelon

I will hug him, and pet him, and squeeze him
and I will name him George

I am very jealous. Since moving to our new house, I've lost my sun-spot for my garden. I have some tomatoes, cantelopes and cukes clinging to life on dappled sunlight down near the creekbank.

I'm considering, for next year, cutting into my uber-hill and creating some raised beds. Plenty o' sun there. Might also just plug the whole daggum hill with strawberries (and then arm the kids with uzi's to keep down the snakes)!

Enjoy!

I am impressed and envious. Not only does winter seem barely over here, but I have only a tiny urban garden to plant. Still, the whole family enjoys having a space to grab a snack from or find a caterpillar or chase a rabbit from. It looks like you have a great garden going and I'm sure the kids appreciate it.
