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.

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.

The Kentucky Pole beans are really growing.

This Sundance summer squash has half a dozen little squashes on it, and I am sure there will be a lot more to come.

The garden guardian, Mercedes, watching me work. She lays in the shade of the tree while I sweat in the sun. However, her real job is at night. She keeps the deer out of the garden. The first night after we planted I found deer prints in the garden; luckily nothing had been eaten. Since then, I have left Mercedes to sleep outside overnight and no new prints have appeared. Yay for big dogs!

Of course the zucchini is growing the best. It will probably take over the garden and maybe even the whole 1/2 acre yard!
Kentucky Wonder pole beans. Planted on June 27th. They have grown over two inches in less than two days.

Peppers (purple, yellow, red and green) and tomatoes (Celebrity, DX52-12, Sweet 100, and Roma). You can also see a few of the pumpkins to the right. We transplanted most of this on June 23 and 24. Just beyond the tomatoes are the beans and then all the way back are two Big Mac pumpkins. We'll see if we can really get them up to 100 pounds!

We planted some herbs in a pot in the courtyard. There is oregano, thyme, rosemary, basil, and key lime basil. They all seem to be growing pretty well, but the thyme and oregano are really taking off. They key lime basil smells so good! Now we just have to find something to use it in. We also got spearmint, variagated sage, pineapple sage, and cinnamon basil, but we haven't found a home for them yet. We might plant them in the back with the vegetable garden.
This is the Unicorn rose. It's the smallest of all the rose bushes we planted, but is growing the best. It has tons of new growth and blossoms. The blossoms are a little bit more of a coral color than we thought they would be, but they are beautiful!

Here is our vegetable garden. Or rather, our weed garden. Too bad we didn't have a more current picture because the weeds were much better. Meaning bigger. We are in the process of clearing all the weeds, and will be adding topsoil soon. It was tiring, so we are taking a break to upload the pictures. We're still trying to figure out how to get rid of the metal ring from the trampoline. That will probably have to wait until next year's garden.

Monica and I finished the other side of the bedding area around the courtyard today. We added some Dianthus too.
