From the Vegetable Garden

I spent an hour in the vegetable garden before the rain drove me inside.  We have had more than enough rain of late. Plants are growing very well and some of them needed some taming and direction as to which way to go.  I also gave most of the tomatoes a good pruning of the lower leaves and suckers.  I hope this will produce bigger fruits for me this year.

Here's the basket of vegetables I brought in from the garden today.

The basket contained one patio and one olive tomato.

These 6 carrots.

4 sweet banana peppers.

Some side shoots of broccoli.

A handful of green ice lettuce.

Last week I got this patio tomato.

The blueberries are ripening on one bush.  The other ones are not doing well at all.

Check out other harvests at Daphne's Dandelions.
