Garden abundance

My pal Jodene came over the other day and visited our extremely, record breaking, bumper crop veggie garden; she suggested I share some snaps…..For my photo-phile friends, apologies in advance, I took these in bright sunshine. 😦  It’s really the first year in a couple of decades that I’ve even put in a serious vegetable garden, so this has been encouraging to say the very least.

We put in a new bed and used stumps from old trees we had to take out of the yard, using them as the container wall for the new bed.  Seems to be working really well:

you can see how the stumps have been lined up vertically to form a barrier wall

Here are some other shots.  We have grapes!  Very exciting, and certainly unexpected.  Tomato crop will be record breaking, and in response to the question on any given night, “what’s for dinner,” the answer would be: beans.  Good thing we love our french and roma beans, with onion and peppers (three kinds). Not pictured: cucumbers (2 kinds), broccoli, artichokes, basil (4 kinds), arugula. Abundance!

Roma beans and French: what's for dinner? You guessed it.

This grape stand, which will require a stronger support next spring, is only three years old
