Green beans ready to be picked, any volunteers???
Lots of onions
The garden is growing very well this year. We have a pretty good handle on the weeds and thanks to lots of compost in the spring and a fantastic growing season things are doing very well. All the garlic is harvested and hanging in the loft of the barn to dry for a few weeks.

I am on almost daily tomato patrol to search out those delicious sweet treats. A few golden cherry tomatoes here and there and one almost medium sized tomato, oh how I love my tomato sandwich season!!
If all of the tomatoes ripen in the patch its going to be a very big harvest!!
Four rows in total this year for the tomato patch. All staked and mulched, hoping for NO blight in my tomatoes this year.
The first almost ripe medium tomato
Golden Cherry Tomato, by far the best cherry tomato out there!!!
