Some spring garden pics 2014

Okay, now you have to know ahead of time that this is early for my garden and so not everything is as visible as I would want it.  I am sure, if I have time, I will be able to post more pics later, but here we go for now:

We have harvested an estimated 21 heads of broccoli, equivalent to 3 bags of lettuce/spinach(maybe more), and these 6 beets. 

This is my young little garden.  In the back row you might be able to see some young tomato plants.  Next bed up contains beans and tomatoes.  The beds in front of those are my mystery squash plants, and in front of them is my oldest bed of corn.  Anything in front of that is too small to see, but it consists of corn as well.  Aunt Peggy and Uncle Tom there is the compost bin and turner being used as we speak!  Thank you very much! 

This is the right top side of my garden and it contains broccoli, cabbage, beets and butter beans (the butter beans are babies so you can't see them."  The bed in front of that has peppers and I have a baby pepper.  Saw him to day.  Sooo cute!  In the bed in front of the peppers are my watermelons and in front of that are egg plants. 

In the top of the picture left to right we have tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes, and butter beans and a volunteer mystery squash.  Bottom of pic left to right is cabbage with a few herbs, and my herb bed with herbs,peppers, a volunteer squash, and once again butter beans.  I know seriously I love butter beans!  To the extreme right you can see two beds not in cinder block.  Those are my sweet potato plants.  Thanks again Jimmy!

I know it seems like I have a lot of tomatoes, but that is only cause I have a lot of tomatoes.  He he!  I'll use them!  How do you like my rock walk way?  I mean it isn't something to grace the cover of Better Homes and Gardens, but I would say it deserves an honorable mention in this months Redneck Gazette.  The Frugal Farming and Fashion section.  Not a beauty, but practical and free.  These are rocks I have collected over the years from digging, as well as some broken cinder blocks carelessly tossed aside years ago when we got a foundation. 

So there you have it!  More to come I hope.  I also hope your garden adventure is going well.  Feel free to tell us about it!
