Turns out nothing can keep my garden down. Not even the deer. Reminds me of a song by Rick Astley.
My garden is…
Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you
Here is the song if you want to reminisce.
Being most of the cucumber plant was nibbled off by deer, having the opportunity to show you this photo is a relief.
Even without most of the stems, the plant is still going to produce for me. We have quite a few now, so it looks like we will make it after all.
An elf shoe, plain and simple.
This is more like it. I expect many more where this came from.
The basil is my garden leader, setting the bar high and leading me to garden victory.
What are we going to do with all this basil?
Basil Pesto! There will be a future post on how to make it.
For those that like to add a slice of spice to their food, hopefully you have some jalapenos growing in your garden. So tasty!
In my house, the whole handful is mine!
I am not sure if you can see this in the photo but the zucchini flower is full of water.
I’m thinking about casting the flower out of concrete and selling it as the worlds first beebath.
Healthy and vibrant zucchini.
The leek is really thickening up.
I would have had a much larger eggplant to show you, but last week my 3 year old son decided it was ready to pick.
How can you argue with him, the eggplant was egg sized. Makes sense.
Where I live the temperatures are on the rise. Think hot! Big toe stuck in the gate of hell kind of hot! This week they are talking about 103+. So, these might be the last pretty pictures I post for awhile.
I better get out and appreciate it now while I have the chance.
