…..then there are the fruits from my garden. It’s been an interesting year for growth. Maybe it’s the water, maybe the soil. Whatever the reason, many of the veggies and fruits are quite small…some are plentiful, but most are kind of tiny. Guess what?? There are powerfully big, fresh flavors coming out of those little packages! I wish I could share more with you than just their pictures.
Little yellow bell peppers
Tiny, tiny strawberries
Okay, Grape Tomatoes are supposed to be small…er
This is the entire harvest of nine potato plants…hahahaha…there is one fat little gopher running around here somewhere full of my potatoes!!
The apple in these pictures is there for size comparison (of course you needed that explanation, ;D )…
We actually got pears off of the 1st year pear trees…hahahaha
The mighty artichoke
Tiny Cantaloupe…smaller than a softball, bigger than a baseball
Major big flavor in a tiny little package!
Apples from an old, old apple tree.
Each year a different garden has grown, same basic varieties, very different results. We have been playing around with soil and location a bit, this year mainly soil. Time to start taking notes.
I hope you have a wonderful day…go ahead and pick a few tomatoes…they are amazing!!
VERY EXCITING NEWS!!! Okay, those “firsts” in life are usually very exciting, but the firsts on the roster today are the first fruits of our 2014 Garden. Take a look!!
Pretty, little, yellow, watermelon flower.
Not exactly a fruit…but it’s the first flower leading to the fruit. I think it counts 😉
I spy with my little eye…..
You might have to zoom this picture to find the first pea pods.
The first cantaloup flower…leading to the first fruit.
