I’ve been neglecting the blog lately and hopefully this catch up post will get me back into the swing of things. I took a family trip up to Chicago last weekend to check out my sister and her husband’s new house as well as give the kids a taste of a big city. Before leaving, I took some pictures of the garden with the intention of writing a status update for the blog. Well, that was a week ago and I am just now getting the post written. Last week was the time in the garden where everything looks nice and neat. Not overgrown, not overcrowded. No troubles with insects or disease yet, just a happy time. By the end of this month, that carefree time will be over. Below are some pictures showing the state of the garden before we left for our long weekend.
Since the above pictures were taken last week, I have managed to harvest a couple more vegetables. First up was some peas which I finally had a chance to steam up tonight. Very tasty. I also thinned some of the onions and chopped them up for a salad and tacos.
