Yeah, I absolutely SUCK at blogging this summer...

But it is truly only because I don't have much to blog about!!!

The only things I have growing this year are collards (which were pulled out of the ground because they were bolting), some  very midget like hot pepper plants, and 1,000 tomatoes growing along side the house. Tomatoes are tomatoes... None of them are anything special yet, since they were put in the ground WAY too late. However, on that negative note, the "hillbilly tomatoes" Ray gave me are doing quite well for the lot of them this year. Four plants up to my chest and only 2 tomatoes...

I pulled the peas out of the ground, as they were so dried up from this crazy summer heat they were brown and dusty. I did get a good harvest though. Probably about 3 pounds. I also had cabbage growing that we got for free from the community garden. I have gotten 4 heads so far, 3 green and 1 red. Total yield from the cabbage, 2 gallon bags worth. Collards total yield was 4 gallon bags worth.

Needed something to scale my last harvest against... Hence, the butter dish

  1. just seeing your pics makes me want to be there~~ hugs

  2. Okay, I admit it, I clicked on your profile because I thought the picture of you and the man kissing with the sunset in the background looked really beautiful. Ugh, sometimes, I'm such a girl. I hope you'll blog more! This is my first year growing vegetables, so everything is kind of new to me. I didn't grow any cabbage, but I'm thinking about growing some next year, just so I can say that I have a "Cabbage Patch." For some reason, that just sounds really neat! Your Cabbage Patch looks great with all those lovely cabbage heads.
