Weekend Happenings

 With my husband off this past weekend, we had so much time to fill! We got through a lot of our to-do list, and survived the addition of some extra items too...

Garden hoed & raked (around the volunteer pea plants), corn planted - about a quarter of the garden is in corn this year, twice as much as last year.

 Beans planted, 2 rows each of 2 types of dry beans, and 4 rows of a couple types of green beans.

 Beautiful little butterfly getting nutrients from the soil around the potatoes.

No strawberries yet, but soon! Corn on the left, potatoes, carrots, onions, and cucumbers past the strawberries. Then the raspberries, then the lower half of the garden.

Planting the squash & cucumber seeds, after pre-sprouting them inside.

 Beans in, squash area prepped, squash seeds in, tomato & pepper area prepped, tomatoes & peppers hardening off on the porch.

 Hardening off - peppers, tomatoes, and an assortment of herbs.

 Swallowtails down in the lower field, 5 or 6 of them!

It wouldn't be summer around here without some irrigation issues, this geyser was short-lived, but exciting while it lasted! Luckily the irrigation guy was able to reduce flow in the main line enough so my husband could get the irrigation head back on our outlet, so the down-pipe users could get their water pressure back!

I hope your weekend was as productive and fun-filled as ours!


  1. Whew! Looks like y'all had a productive weekend! Can't wait to see your harvest!

  2. What a sweet little garden. Sounds like a very productive weekend indeed.
