In The Garden

Garden1 Garden2 Garden3The pickling cucumbers are still going strong.  I think I’ll have 20 quarts of dill pickles by the time the season is over, plus lots of dill slices and relish.  The pimentos have gone from green to yellow.  Red and harvest is next.  Tomatoes are just starting to ripen and boy are they good!

Twice My Height

SunflowersI put a few sunflower seeds right at the rear of our garden on the edge of a raised bed.  They are seriously twice as tall as I am and are still growing.  They even dwarf our greenhouse. I hope we’re able to see the flowers when they bloom.

Back In Business

HoneyWe spent the morning harvesting honey from our one remaining hive.  It’s doing so well, Brian split it into two as he was pulling frames.  It’s been just three months since we purchased our bees, they’ve been busy!  Our sourwood trees are just starting to bloom, we’re hoping for another harvest before the summer is over.
