Right after we moved into our house in March I planted a small garden. There wasn’t much time to get it all in the ground, but I managed tomatoes, cucumbers, bush beans, zucchini, and hot peppers. I planted everything I needed to make salsa, spaghetti, and pickles plus my favorite veggies to pick and eat fresh.

Here is a wide view of my garden!

This picture is missing the hot peppers I just transplanted from their pots on the porch to just in front of those lovely bean bushes! The peppers just needed more sun and water than they were getting on the porch. other than being incredibly green my garden seems to be fairly productive right now. Here are some close ups!

Here is a cluster of 5 Tomatoes plus there are others on this plant!

Plus my cucumber plants have several flowering blooms. The zucchini got a late start, but the plants are getting stronger. I ‘m hoping to make my way out to the farmers market or the flea market this week/weekend and see about getting some fresh strawberries to make jam! I want to try my hand at canning them. Its a nice feeling to be a do it yourself er. I’m still fairly young, but compared to my friends even much older ones I’m the old grandma of the group… Its okay though I love my life and my lifestyle! I’ll keep making, growing, canning, and doing my own everything as long as I can!! 🙂

Until next time – get muddy!! 🙂
