Garden Filled In and Feeds Me Daily

The garden measures about 16′ X 24′ I have flowers mingled inside with all the veggies as well.  Bring the birds, bees, dragonflies and butterflies to eat the bugs and pollinate was my plan.

I forage for greens each morning with my coffee and JT she is never far from me.  I go back out again to get things for my dinner though I better start adding chicken or eggs to my salad or I will loose all my muscles, which I will need come the end of the season, to put this place to bed.

Radishes, Summer Squash, Zucchini and Sugar Snap Peas with Raspberries were my fixings that went in with my Rainbow Swiss Chard and Spinach Salad.  We are in a drought here but that soil I bought is amazing just the perfect amount of compost makes all the difference.  It is light and fluffy still.  I wish I had grown one of everything.  I have beets, carrots, string beans,corn and spaghetti squash yet to show up but they are growing like mad.

We got heavy rain for a bit tonight it was glorious and the earth soaked it right up.

Hope you are all having a wonderful and safe week, this world we live in is going crazy so glad  I have these things to keep me away from TV and more bad news.  Pray for Peace on our beautiful earth xo

  1. I don’t watch the news anymore, it’s too depressing. There is good in the world but we don’t really hear of it! I love your garden pictures, don’t you just love all that natures bounty has to offer?😉

  2. Busy busy you Eunice. But now you can reap the harvest which looks scrumptious. I am also one who avoids watching all the bad news. When will we have some good news of peace in the world ? Stay cool Eunice !! Love your latest painting.

    1. Thanks Rita only thing that keeps me going is knowing there are more of us than them 🙂

  3. WOW your garden is amazing Eunice and love seeing the amazingly gorgeous vegetables grown in it. Wonderful shots and so happy to see your painting again! Here is to another couple of great summer months to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

    1. It you only knew the half of it if you were closer I would hang a bag from your back door 🙂 I am having so much fun this year now that all horrid medical stuff has taken a different route. Happy Summer to you as well.
