it's the first day of summer, and our garden is already getting out of hand. mindy leaves on wednesday to visit family back in singapore for a few weeks, so we thought today would be a good day to kind of take stock of where we are at.
|9 different kinds of peppers for roasting, pickling, and eating!|
|4 varieties of eggplants|
|6 different kinds of tomatoes, all for making sauce and paste|
|minibel tomato, for snacking|
mindy seems to be leaving just in time for me to enjoy all of the raspberries and the blueberries on our plants. there's not many, but we're getting better at understanding how to prune and manage the plants, so hopefully next year we will have a stronger crop.
our 'wild' and everbearing strawberries are still producing and sending out flowers, while our classic indiana berries have finished up. most all of the herbs have outgrown their pots, and i've already dried two rounds of oregano.
here's some pictures of some of the other plants ...
|Empress of India nastutium|
|clemson spineless okra|
|washington navel orange|
|button box zinnias|
