Summer Garden Time

It's been a while since I posted anything about my garden, which is slightly ironic since it's been doing better than I've ever had it do for me. The weather stayed cool in Texas for so long that we had an extended cold crop season. I've never had everything in my garden do well at the same time. I'm not bragging because clearly people have had much better gardens than this, but it's exciting for me as a young and inexperienced gardener.

Carrots!!! I've never had carrots do well! This was my "thinning out" crop to make room for the other plants to get bigger.

Spinach is going to seed, hoping to collect them. Onions are heading on out as well as the cilantro. Kale and broccoli are still going strong though.

Radishes are gone and beans are in their place (or will be when they come up). Lettuce is still massive but will be going to seed soon.

Potatoes and spaghetti squash (this spaghetti squash was from seeds I collected from a squash I bought from the store). There's watermelon too, but they're just getting going now that the weather has gotten warm.

Zucchini and yellow squash. There's pumpkin coming up in the front. It's my second attempt at planting it because I already lost some by the squash bugs.

Peppers already have blooms, that's a good sign in my book. Tomatoes are putting on too!

My tomato patch.

Blackberries! Our bushes didn't do well at all last year, but it looks as if they're having a better time this year. Maybe I'll get some jam made with them!

We also have mulberries galore, they're having a good year too. They're ripening too fast for me to get out there and pick them, I wasn't expecting them to be ready so soon. So we're just eating them when we feel like going out there. Ryder has been loving it.

Looking forward to much more fruit from the garden!
