We were looking at pictures this past weekend on our Flickr account (feel free to check it out if you have a minute, be our friend if you are a Flickr-er as well), and we couldn’t believe how much things have grown in the past couple months. So we tried to replicate the pictures we had taken a month ago so you could see it like we see it.
So here is the picture of our garden in the middle of May…
Now you can see the stuff at the far end, on the right… its our potatoes, they are long gone. Harvested. Look at the tiny peppers on the right, and honestly some of the plants on the left have died. I don’t know which ones, since we killed a lot of them haha.
Here is the picture from this past weekend.
Pretty cool to see it grow this much in two months. You can see on the right those same lil sprigs of pepper plants have grown into small plants now, and they are producing peppers now. On the left, you can see the okra, bell & banana peppers and tomatoes flanking the peppers on each side. The tomatoes are about 3.5 ft. tall, and producing tomatoes.
P.S. – Saw this over at Mama’s Losin’ It – and wanted to share with our folks as well. If you have time and want to help a fellow blogger out, head over to Friends of George and buy a cookbook for a dollar.
I lile the way you have the garden laid out with the stone. Lookes nice.
@deb – thanks, it was hardwork… it turned out looking like a cross – which is our last name… 😉
I love the layout of your vegetable garden. The stone pathway is a nice touch. Everything seems to have grown alot since May.
That is a grand garden and growing nicely. I too love the pathway. It makes it more comfortable in the garden and you know, some days I just want to go look and not work. I don’t always want muddy feet.
@perennialgardenlover – welcome, and thanks for the kind words. It is good to know that everyone loves the path – makes the hands & knees work not seem so bad now. haha
@Anna – agreed, when we are just cruisin’ through – keeps our feet clean and there isn’t a question of where TO walk and where NOT TO walk. Thanks for stopping by!
Your garden looks great. That’s one of the few things I like about summer. At least the plants are bigger. Boy do I miss those spring days when the compost is fresh and the ground is workable.
@Megan – Thanks, we kinda like it too. Its 100 again today here, I’m wishing for Spring days too.
I love those stones, you have a nice amount of space for a garden.
@Kristi – thanks again, we are happy with the amount of room – the stones, definitely keepers.
