We will have blueberries soon! Look how big the berries are already! Yay. Come on blue! Here are the blackberries. They are thorn less. Excuse it being kind of grown up.
Here are the scuppernongs. A Southern grape.
Here is tamed crabapple tree. We use these for pollination. The fruit is not as bitter as the old tiny green crabapples. These are a bit smaller and red in color. They make great pickles and jelly!
A few pepper plants.
The potato bugs have really done a number on the eggplant plants.
Here's one of the cantaloupe plants blooming.
Here's the chinese cabbage. This is our first year growing this.
An overview of the garden with my house in the background.
Here's the tomatoes. I could not get the blooms and the little green ones to show up in the pictures for some reason though. There are 3 rows (1000 feet rows) of them.
Here's the squash after the first big picking yesterday. There is three 1000 foot rows of it and a couple more rows planted a few weeks later. We got almost 6 bushels yesterday.
Here's the garden. The front of the building is the fruit market and the back building is the packing house. We have a place to store equipment in the very back.
Another shot of the garden.
This picture is looking from the fruit market to our driveway. The rows are that long. I think each row is about 1000 feet. Here's Mother on the beep beep with the boys yesterday, enjoying a day of warm sunshine!
Here's the first three squash picked by me last Saturday. I stewed it with butter, onions, salt, sugar and pepper, just like my Grandma used to.
And last but certainly not least, my Mom and Daddy rode to the lower farm and checked the peaches Saturday. This is what they brought me back........yum! What a great cobbler they made!
I cannot believe we open our roadside fruit market in just a couple of weeks. One of the markets we attend is already open and the other 5 will open by the 6th of June. Where is the time going?
Our peach orchard is on the lower farm.......no pictures of that. I didn't drive over to the apple/pear/plum/nectarine orchard either. Maybe pictures of that later. WE also have some plants that did not make it into the garden pictures, maybe later.
What's growing in your garden? Happy harvest and blessings!!!
