Two weeks have flown by since the last garden update! Not only has our family been busy working and playing, our garden has been super busy growing, developing, and producing!

Keeping Busy

This is the first year that we have not had a baseball player since R started T-Ball about 10-12 years ago!  I thought we would have several weeks with downtime and room to relax, but that hasn’t been the case.  We are doing a large construction job on weekends and evenings with my dad.  In addition to that we’ve built a new deck at our own house this summer and are still working on that!  It’s all good though!  Lots of quality bonding time!  😉

Fruits & Vegetables

Our vegetable garden is finally growing rapidly and getting close to producing!  Our green beans are blooming, which means green beans come next!  Our red onions are getting bigger each week along with the carrots.  We’ve also officially picked a small handful of strawberries which has been the most exciting thing in the last two weeks!  They are so sweet and it’s exciting to know that in the next couple years I won’t have to buy strawberries anymore!

Flower Garden Update

The feature of the flower beds in the last two weeks has definitely been the Hollyhocks and lilies!  The hollyhocks have bold and bright blooms and stand tall above all other flowers, which is one of the reasons I love them.  My lilies of course, are my favorite, and have just started blooming!  I find them to be magnificent and can’t get enough of them!

Thanks for stopping by my gardens and I hope you enjoyed your tour!  What is blooming in your garden?
