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!

  1. I'm jealous of yours and Kyrie's raspberries. /sigh. I think raspberries are my very favorite food, maybe not counting chocolate. ;) (Raspberries and chocolate together though, there's a winning combination!) I have two types of raspberries in my yard this year and one is getting close, a couple more weeks I think. The other hasn't even started producing fruit yet. I'm so thrilled to finally have a raspberry bush at all though.

    My peas are actually doing really awesome, though I got a variety that says it doesn't need to be trellised, and I think I need to rig up a trellis for them. They're falling over onto my broccoli.
