Pardon me while I share pictures of seeds busting out of the ground. We just love spring! And the Farmers Wife just loves gardening!!! We are so excited the last few weeks have been warm. School is winding down and much of the days have been spent outside. We have 8 mouths to feed now, so our garden grew considerably this year. We have 1/4 acre patch in our backyard and aprox. and acre of sweet corn.
I just love to see little sprouts popping out of the ground!
Just look how strong they are!!!
First tomato!!!! Get the salt shaker ready! We have 36 tomato plants, but we are planning for a lot of salsa and spaghetti sauce. I hope we will have enough!
The Littlest Gardeners. They like to help with their machinery.
Pretty little cucumbers…we LOVE pickles around here!
Last but not least, STRAWBERRIES. We need a much larger patch! I had hopes of canning jams and jellies, but they are eaten just as soon as they turn red. The kids have a race every day to search for ripe berries.
Junior, the guardian of the strawberries. He insures no mice in our strawberry patch!
Until next time, HAPPY GARDENING!
