Garden Updates 6-28-09

Just a few little garden updates I would like to share with everyone. These were taken last month and well, we all know that I'm a bad, bad blogger for not posting them till now! Maybe, I will get this months photos up before the end of the month:)

The fabulous Turkey Foot Fig. I'm not sure how well this little tree will take KY winters, so I have it in a pot on the back deck. Makes it easy for me to bring it into the garage for winter. BTW, the fig pictured was eaten a few weeks ago, but don't worry! Fig trees give you fruit twice a year:) Once in the middle of summer and again in late summer!

This is a little over a month ago of our tomatoes. Since this picture, our vines runneth way up and over the tall cages. Tomatoes pictured are Goliath, Hawaiian Pineapple, Mr Stripey and Cherokee Purple.

Bill's big summer project. He built this lovely deck all on his own. He does beautiful work, but dang is he ever so particular about everything being absolutely PERFECT!

I'm not a big fan of buying Wally-world anything, but my Granny gets her prescriptions filled there and when I walked by these unique echinacea plants.... Well, I just couldn't resist!

And our wonderful and rapidly producing cucumbers! We have encouraged our cucks to weave in and out of the lattice. Makes picking time that much easier:)

Isn't is a great feeling to grow and harvest our own food-the 'modern' person misses so much by not gardening! Great bounty!
(The deck is stunning-great work from your Bill!)

That pink flower is beautiful!

I realized I forgot to claim my gift certificate for winning your blog contest back in December. This was for suggesting Sour Apple Bubblegum as a name. How do I claim it? I'm interested in the 4 oz. bottle of Citrus Soak that you have in your Etsy shop.
