Isaac and I went down to water the garden last night and I was surprised to see how my green beans had grown so quickly! I planted bush beans and I moved the plants around a bit to see and saw a ton of green beans about ready! Really it seemed like overnight…. But I am thrilled! Besides eating them fresh I will be freezing any leftover ones and canning some 3 bean salad. I don’t think I really planted enough to bother with canning, we will see though. I may can some if it looks like I have enough.
Today the temps are soaring to around 100 and so Leanne and I went down to the garden this morning to water again. I wanted to make sure my garden gets plenty of water during this upcoming heat wave. I took some pics while I was there..
Lettuce.. well, I planted a whole lot of lettuce and we are eating lots of salad but it seems that we barely put a dent in what I planted! LOL.. so lesson learned? Plant less and plant ever few weeks instead of all at once.. I knew this actually so why I did not follow this I am not sure.. a few too many summers off of gardening and my skills got rusty!
Summer Squash.. I still don’t have any ready. I planted 3 mini zucchini's and 3 sunburst squash plants.. but I am gathering together all my zucchini and summer squash recipes to be prepared.
Those green beans..
And a few more…
