In the Garden
All my tomatoes are in. I'm going to have sooo many tomatoes (looks like I will be making a lot of pasta sauce). I think I planted 4 more plants than I did last year and I'm still working on using up the frozen tomatoes from last year. I'm not sure what I was thinking.
My peas are up and making their way up the netting. They haven't been very happy this year. There is a real weed problem in my yard and some of the peas got choked out.
I have zucchini already. I picked that little zucchini the next day! This plant seems much more manageable than the Ambassador zucchini I had last year.
I have raspberries. I'm pretty excited because raspberries are one of my favorite things from the garden. When I was a child, my parents didn't have the yard space for raspberries so whenever I went to visit my grandmother in the summer she would always send me home with a little bucket of raspberries fresh from her garden. Nothing says summer like a handful of raspberries!
