How bout finding those Ladybugs on the march near your pepper plants?

The first tomato blossom setting fruit?

A child of yours coming in the house with handfuls of peas and telling you she ate more than she brought in?

A 6yo coming inside with MM all over his hands because he just wanted to tell you the carrots and radishes are ready?

Those happened in the past two weeks here.

The first blush of red on a tomato and the first lettuce salad are some of my favorites. My son explaining to a reluctant neighbor kid that snap peas taste like sunshine (happened a few weeks ago.) I also enjoy giving my neighbor some radishes, usually my plants are quicker and nicer looking than his row garden. For some reason that I cannot fathom he enjoys radish heartburn. Looking forward to hear what others write in.

Nice work and nice photos.

So many things to choose from but yesterday, which was aptly "Father's Day", we enjoyed watching the male blackbird feeding his baby sitting on our wall.

Beautiful, FamilyGarden

I was so happy to harvest my first artichoke on Thursday.

I was delighted to share an abundance of lettuce ( and make salad for 20 people) with my grandson's other grandparents when we celebrated his first birthday this past weekend in Sequim, WA.

(that's why I have been gone from the forum for several days)

Shocked WOW... that is so cool FB! I have 4 little arti's planted and growing. They are so NOT supposed to grow in my climate but someone said this particular type will, but it will be annual not come back the next year like most do.

I am happy to see they are still alive, LOL, if I got an actual artichoke on one I would be jumping up and down making my neighbors fairly certain I had lost it. Cool

LOL and for the record.....just having a garden makes me happy!

shannon

the secret to the crook neck squash....im not sure...LOL

I do make compost tea that i use......i put compost made with worm castings that i purchase from a local nursery in a old pare of panty hose and let it soak over night in a five gallon bucket....sometimes depending on what color the leaves are in the veggies i planted i will add fish em or organic mircle grow......( i have only done this a couple of times) most of the time its just the compost tea......

we planted the crook neck squash into the topsey turvey tree in hopes we will be able to share the harvest with the racoons this year instead of them eating ALL the crook necks like they did last year when i had them in the SFG tongue the crook necks seem to really love the topsey turvey.....they are growing so much larger then they did last year......i think with our local PNW weather....they are staying warmer in the topsey turvey.......we also filled it with MM Very Happy

hugs
rose.....
