I pulled the Collard Greens! We dont use them much plus overgrown. Love the thick stem and roots. The Stem is very Palm tree like.



Right into the compost.

This morning's harvest. These are Black Krim tomatoes. VERY juicy but a different taste from the typical Tomato. Has a dark tint on the inside.

Last year they didnt grow this big.

Cam!!! Your photos (AND GARDEN) are absolutely awesome!! Thanks so much for sharing. Sorry I haven't been around, kinda got "caught up" (yeah right)....okay, caught up enough, on the outside, but the inside was becoming a wreck. I got busy inside and installed some more storage, repurposed some OLD shelves to use in the kitchen, etc.

We've been eating LOTS of snow peas and green beans. Mmmm nothing like frying them up with bacon, to turn a fabulously healthy food into a "not so much healty" food....but YUM and it gets the 4 yr old grandson to eat them. Anyhowwwww, I completely forgot about the zuchinni and crookneck we've been frying up and the mamouth red radishes we've been eating. We've got a few boysenberries coming off of the vine now.

I've been picking and drying chickweed and calendula, as well as using some fresh to make some homemade ointments.

I transplanted our new strawberry plants out into a bed I made in the old chicken yard and OMG! There were 6 plants (cuz I knew I could push for lots of runners this year) and within 2 weeks of transplanting, I had 24 plants. LOL I haven't been counting, but let me tell ya, I'm gonna need a bigger strawberry bed.

I put an 8' long trellis behind the strawberry bed and planted flowering sweetpeas. Have I mentioned just how much I love flowering sweetpeas? Oh man, the colors, the fragrance. It's so nice having them again!!

Thanks! My beans just started to come out. They are the simple Roma String Beans. Will try to get a picture. best decision I made was building that trellis although I realized I could of went 10 feet and still not be enough for them. LOL

Last winter I saved the seeds from a package of Tomatoes I bought at the supermarket. It's nice to have them growing in backyard now.



Finally String Beans showing up



Trellis is completely hidden by the bean growth
