|Soft Neck garlic|
While Scott mowed the back lawn this morning I worked some in our vegetable garden. I cleaned out 3 raised beds and together Scott and I harvested the "soft neck" garlic (it's like what you buy in the grocery store). The garlic that I harvested I took the time to braid them together for easier hanging and drying. I may braid Scott's garlic harvest tomorrow. I transplanted the larger yellow squash and cucumber plants that I had started from seed earlier this year. I hope that they will survive the transplanting. I also transplanted the little pepper plants even though they haven't all gotten their "true" leaves. I hope that these little guys make it as I have chow chow to make and I want to can a bunch of jalapeños as I LOVE THEM! I planted the last bed in beets as I want the greens as well as the beets for pickled beets.
|Volunteer tomato and Zinnia|
OH I almost forgot I have a volunteer tomato and a zinnia in this one bed where the garlic is hanging and I decided to just let them "grow where they are". The tomato plant all ready has some blooms on it.

The little wind mill has been spinning nearly all day with the gentle breeze that's been blowing. You can see Amelia's work in the yard in the back ground - BAD DOG! DIGGER! At least she doesn't dig out - KNOCKING ON WOOD!
