Around the Yard::Vegetables

It's been about a month since I last showed you our vegetable garden. And WOW what a difference!

Everything is growing strong. We have many eggplant flowers; many many little tiny peppers, which I had thought I'd gotten a picture of but I guess I didn't! The cauliflower is taking off like crazy. We've never grown it so we didn't know what to expect. But we didn't think it would have such large leaves that over take EVERYTHING. The peppers were suffering a little bit because of it, so last night my husband pruned all the cauliflower leaves. I should take a picture of them now, they look funny! But I'd much rather have peppers & carrots then cauliflower so I'm really ok if they don't produce much.

It's time to harvest the lettuce so I'm thinking tonight we'll have a salad with our own lettuce! As I've said before we got everything in later then we wanted so we haven't been harvesting anything yet. As long as the frost holds off until November we should be good!

And thank you to Karen for pointing out that one of the pictures in yesterday's post wasn't coming up. I've fixed it now!


  1. Wow - your garden looks great! The raised beds worked out real well. We have some cucumbers growing but that's about it. The tomatoes look kinda icky this year. Hubby didn't pay too much attention to it. But we do have plenty of basil!

  2. You are welcome :) Love your garden and I guess we will just have to pretend to eat from yours. Ours is drab. But then I think you are putting in way more effort than us!!


Thank you for taking the time to stop by & comment! I will try my best to respond to all comments here in the comment box!
