small garden update

Well, it's been a while since I have posted anything about the gardens. I only had a chance this morning to post pics of the small garden I will hope to get some pics of the big garden up soon. :) Everything is growing great! I replanted some pea plants which are really taking off and another batch of carrots.                                Cutting flowers
                         Cucumber plants (pickle cucumbers)
                         Cucumber :)
                    Red peppers, just not red yet :)
                         Onion plants getting big
                   Second planting of pole beans
                         Bush beans
                           Heirloom tomatoes
     trying one of the second plantings of peas in a pot
                        Peas- 1st planting
                       Second planting of peas coming up
                       Amish past tomato
                       second batch of carrots
  Lettuce, going to plant more of this before it gets to hot
 We are trying something new with our potatoes this year. :)  A big metal tub which we put holes in the bottom for drainage and are building up the  burlap as the plants grow and we keep adding compost. We will see how it worked at harvesting time. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week!
