Since mom never updates this, I thought I would!  She's taken tons of pictures, but has been too lazy to upload any of them.  And since I don't have any, I can't post them either.  Maybe some day she'll get around to it.

Also, I was going to put a link to my floral design site and facebook fan page on here, but I can't access the actual blog layout and such - only post things.  So mom, you should do that too.  Or get me to help next time I come home.

And yes mom, you can delete this post if you ever get back on here and even see it.  But only after you upload new pictures.

A beautiful Peace rose.


A bountiful harvest!!

Look at all this beautiful food! Lots of zucchini, peter pan squash, summer squash, radishes, a cucumber and one cherry tomato. There were actually two, but I ate one before I took the picture.
Tons of squash!!
Radishes in the foreground. Not too many left. I harvested 21 this morning. Tomatoes and beans in the background. Big Mac pumpkins in the back and to the right.

The Kentucky Pole beans are really growing.
Two Golden Bell Peppers. Still have several weeks until harvest.
Jubilee Corn. There are 17 smaller ones growing behind these big ones. I planted the back two rows about two weeks ago.
Sweet Slice cucumber, it's about 8 inches long.
Peter Pan Squash
The Celebrity tomatoes are getting larger.

Beans, beans!

Yum! One of my favorites is fresh green beans. These are the Kentucky Pole beans.
You can't see them too well yet, but there are eight Blue Lake bush beans growing here.
The Kentucky Pole beans are coming along wonderfully. There are 6-7 around each pole.
