June Harvest

22 Jun

This post is titled “June Harvest,” however as it is now the end of July, you can see that I did not get around to finishing this post until now. The good news here is that you don’t have to wait for an update. It will follow shortly! When I came home to the farm from Atlanta a few weeks ago, Mom had gotten an incredible garden started. In addition to that, there were some surprise plants sprouting!

Tons of strawberries in the raised beds.

My faithful garden helper, Willie.

Lots of tomatoes sprouting out.

I love the veil that asparagus makes during this stage. The plants are probably about 4.5′ tall.

There were so many cucumbers! Couldn’t pick fast enough.

We had three cucumber vines this year.  it was more than enough! We had cucumbers coming out of our ears.  I brought a huge amount of them back to Atlanta with me.  Out of those, I ended up making four different pickle recipes! There was relish, hot, sweet, and dill. I am planning to post photos and recipes from that. So, keep an eye out.

Surprise! This appeared in two places in the garden.

This was one of our surprise vines.  Looks like a pumpkin, just white.  Not sure what to make of it just yet.  I’m going to do a little research, but time will be the best indicator of what it is.

Another surprise! A gourd perhaps?

Here’s another surprise vine, and another white one at that.  These are small, about 3″ across.  They look like the decorative gourds seen in the fall.

Update and progress to follow soon. Can’t wait to see what comes out later in the summer.
