Happy August 1st!!!!
Traffic was not horrendous today which was nice. Got home, a quick snack and changed into partial workout gear hahaha.
She is impatiently waiting for us to go do out watering in the yard.
Raspberries!!!! Well raspberry plants, they are still growing but not really producing anymore.
One of Brandon’s newly panted areas. The front yard is mostly his domain and he wants it to look presentable.
More newly planted flowers…..that i got free from someone at work woohoo!!!
mixture of lettuce, flowers and my herb garden. we have basil, sage, thyme, rosemary, and oregano along with my little fig plant that is very SLOWLY growing.
My pear tree is having a growth spurt
Another area that Brandon has created. He has a good eye for yards actually.
Pea season has definitely come to an end. I am slowly getting one or two peas here and there that are no where near as sweet and wonderful as the ones at the beginning of the season. I have a bag in the freezer that i am slowly adding to, it will be good to throw in soups over the winter.
These tomatoes are finally starting produce a bit. The artichoke plant is still just there lol. The cucumber plant is hanging on, i have gotten one cucumber off it so far. The bell pepper plant is just starting to get its first pepper. and the chive are new and doing pretty well.
She LOVES to roll around in the grass. She never did this before we moved here. I think she likes it a lot.
2nd batch of onions, they are surviving!!!!
Summer squash…….do you see it?
My 2 lone pumpkins. I have cut them from the stalks and they are starting their curing process. I don’t need them to last months though, just until classes are over then i will cook with them.
This is our neighbors plum tree, i would say 1/3 is hanging over into our yard and i am watching like a hawk for ripe plumbs i can take from out side!!!!!!
Zucchini is still producing like crazy!!!!
Look how many are starting to turn colors!!!! Just a few more days!!!!
That is a cucumber plant growing in among the tomatoes, snaking its vines wherever it can find space.
The last bit of lettuce is holding on in the heat and letting us get a few leaves here and there as we need them.
That is the garden currently.
Today i made zucchini bread and zucchini pasta salad for lunch tomorrow.
Ran some sprints for run training……..my fastest sprints were in the 8 min mile time frame hahahahahaha this is hilarious because that is a lot of runners normal or slightly pushing it pace……there are people who run marathons doing 5 min miles and i am dying doing 8 min for 45 secs. But you know what………I AM DOING IT!!!! And i am proud of that no matter how slow I am.
I am about 1/2 of the way done with my essay that is due tomorrow at midnight but it is 10pm and that is my bedtime if i don’t want to be a zombie tomorrow. Plus the due date is tomorrow so i can afford to go to sleep.
Thank you for following along!!!
Hope you had a wonderful day!!!!

Your garden is doing great. Artichokes take about 6 months, 150 to 180 days to produce. How long ago did you plant it?
I think in March. I am not supposed to do anything but prune it back the first year anyways but I figured something would happen lol. Definitely a slow grower
