Our Garden is Growing

Here is the progress report of our garden.  This is the view from our front porch.  Tom is in the tractor, baling hay.  It's cuttin' time!...the first of the year.

Our herbs.  The photo doesn't really do it justice.  I've never seen herbs get this big.
Oh, they love that Texan heat!
We've got about 100 cherry tomatoes about to ripen all at once.

The beginnings of an eggplant

Green and red sweet peppers

Trellising spinach (never seen one of these in CA before!)


Green beans

The flowers on the okra plant-- aren't they beautiful?

Beets, carrots, green beans

That yellow flower is a tomatillo plant-- it makes the best salsa verde!!!

Anaheim chilis

Serrano peppers

Summer squash

Sweet corn

Holy Cow! Everything is huge! We just passed our frost date and are planning to plant our tomatoes this weekend. You are so far ahead and can keep going for so long!
I love the twin pictures of the boys in your next post, too, by the way.
