This is our third summer in this home, and also the third re-incarnation of our Fruit/Veggie Patch.
This year we are growing our own:
Blueberries (although those seem to be for the birds. Or at least so THEY think! And they are not doing so well, so I think we will move them to the cottage in the fall)
Raspberries (yellow, red and black)
Peas (Huge hit - Hudson eats them pods and all, right off the plant)
Peppers (This is attempt #3, the first two were a fail but Hudson loves them. This year - so far, so good)
Beans (green and yellow)
Cucumber (We did them last year as well, best cucumbers ever)
A pumpkin to carve for Halloween
I think that's it...
We tried to do more variety, less quantity this year. Still, I can not keep up coming up with ways to use up all the spinach we have. Oh and our radishes - so spicy we can only eat about 2-3 a day. The strawberries are starting to taper off, and Hudson is doing his best to keep up with those peas. 2 raspberries were enjoyed by Hudson thus far and by the looks of it many, many more should be ready in a week or so! We've cut back on the tomatoes we have this year (3 hills of 2 plants each) because in the past we've supplied pretty well half the neighbourhood and even then heaps of them went to waste. So sad : (
Something else that's new in our garden this year - water barrels!
We have four.
Not only are they great entertainment for Hudson, I have not had to use municipal water once this year.
How about you guys, any fruit/veggie tales of your own? How about flowers?
