Our Garden, now with more Herbage

Our CSA had their end of season clearance of seedling, so I picked up a few more things.  Herbs in a new little bed in front of the house next to the steps:

A sun sugar tomato from the CSA open house a week and a half ago in a topsy-turvy over the back deck:

It’s Growing!


The frequent rainfall, combined with a few days of scorching temps interspersed here and there has resulted in crazy garden growth.  The corn, beans, and pumpkins/gourds have been going crazy and I am starting to get a little frightened of the oregano (front row, center right).

The tomatoes are still on the small side, but the seedlings didn’t get a great start and then got abused during hardening off, so I’m just grateful as many survived as there are.  I did have to fill in a couple of tomatoes from a friend with some spares, but over half survived a rough beginning!

Miss Bean got a pink geranium and Bug got a sun sugar tomato from our CSA open house last week.  The geranium is thriving next to the lavender in the front and the tomato, christened Hin III, is in the topsy-turvy on the deck.

We get our first CSA box this week and there have been rumors of garlic scapes, so I am very excited.  Also, I think tomorrow morning will be strawberries U-pick.  Yum!!!

Passing the buck

Beeb came up to snuggle with me while Bug and I were reading books this afternoon.  As we read, I smelled something a bit, shall we say, untoward.  I asked, “Who’s stinky?” and then turned to Beeb and asked, “Are you the stinky one?”  He replied, will all earnestness, “No, Daddy peh-oopin’ in work.”  Well, I’m glad that’s settled and I don’t have a diaper to deal with.

Out of the mouths of Beebs

Today I was putting on a sock with a huge hole on the heel.  Mr. Beeb’s assessment:  “Yo leg lookin’ outside.  It (pointing to the sock) bwoke.”
