Yarden Update with Pictures!

Ok, I just snapped these as the wind and rain was starting to blow in. I thought a good thing to do while taking a break from house stuff was to get these pictures! I think I've been talking about it for like, 2 weeks. Oy!

I found that I had taken a few similar pictures of certain areas and I wanted to show you the difference just a few weeks makes. The photos on the left are May 3, pictures on the right are today, June 1. I LOVE finding new toys on programs. I used the collage creator in Picasa. I thought this was pretty cool because I get discouraged by lack of progress, and this helps me to see the progress. LOVE!

Kale in the Side Yarden
Garlic Bed in the Back Yarden

Front Yarden!

From flowers....                    To Cherries!
Fire Pit... An awesome hand-me-down gift from my Momma. I brought a bunch of wood home from the farm, but it's too hot now to even think about having a fire. I am sure we will use this thing A LOT come fall!

Pathetic peas (I even sampled a few from these short vines and they were starchy and bitter. This is just NOT the year for peas!) And 2 zuchinni mounds. I am looking forward to having lots of zucchini goodies in the freezer come August, which is usually about the time we are totally sick of them.

Back (top) to front (bottom) 5 marglobe tomatoes, 2 purple cherokees, 3 eggplant, 3 basil.

Back to Front - 2 black cherry tomotoes and 1 sweet 100 type cherry, 10 peppers - jalepenos, hot banana, and cayenne. I am sure I mixed them all up when I planted them.Cucumbers will be growing up the chicken fence on the left.

Beet bed... I used mostly purchased seed tape for the bed, and then sprinkled loose seed on the top left... You can see which sprouted faster... I may do a separate post on this....

Bean Bed. I went with bush varieties this year... We tried pole beans last year and it just didn't go well in our small space. I will keep you all posted on how this goes...
