Garden Photos!


Stepping Stones to Our Pumpkin & Gourde Patch!

Cucumbers! (ready to grow up the string trellis)

Green Beans!

Spaghetti Squash (which is growing in every direction)

Yellow Squash! (we are working on a string trellis for these so they have room to grow vertically...there is no room for them to grow horizontally)


Lush Soy Beans! (we will be eating a lot of edamame)

Small Soybean Pods!

Aneheim Chile Peppers

Pinch Pots!

It finally rained today and I had some time to make pinch pots. I used clay that our friend gave to us. He dug it out of the Chesapeake when he walked the Appalachian trail!

This weekend my parents came over to give us and help us plant four new trees: one Norway Maple and three Japanese Maples!

They also helped us put up our clothes line!


Our garden is doing great! Like I said in the beginning of the post, we finally received some rain so we had a break from working outside. Yesterday we planted a pumpkin patch! We are (hopefully) going to grow gourdes and pumpkins.

Our total crop inventory is:
Green Beans
Spaghetti Squash
Yellow Squash
Peppers (jalapeno, poblano, habanero, anaheim chile, cayenne, sweet banana)
Cherry Tomatoes
Ramapo Tomato
Mountain Spring Hierloom Tomatoes
Sweet Potatoes
Various herbs (planted around the yard)
