We also made ice cream this week from a recipe I found. I will hopefully get that post up in a few days. We had so much fun doing it as a family and it tasted good o a hot afternoon.
The container garden is still plodding along. The cucumbers are growing and have several fruit on them. The tomatoes are hanging on and I even have some more tomatoes that I am hoping will make it till picking time. It just got too hot for the greens. They sprung up and some have even started to go to seed. I'm going to do a second planting in September when it cools down. While I was picking my kids up yesterday at my mother's house, I took a look at my "in the ground" garden. I donated some supplies to create another raised bed in my Mom's square foot garden so she gave me half of the new bed. I planted vine cucumbers and 2 varieties of bush beans. This garden has exploded in the last week. The cucumbers are just starting, but the beans are finally producing harvestable veggies! I managed to pick a bowl full yesterday and I am going back Sunday and will hopefully grab some more. I'm thinking a nice stir fry diner. Here is a slideshow of my garden at night and day and my combined harvest. I know it's meager, but my vegetable garden is small. I'm also proud to say I haven't used any chemicals on my plants. Enjoy!
