Veggie's

It is fantastic how humbling it can be when someone enters into something new thinking, you drop some seeds in the ground sprinkle with water and you end up with luxurious veggies!!  Now book after book, article after article, and advice upon advice I now know people are not born with a green thumb.  And although mine is currently bright green from cleaning the underside of the mower deck out, that still means very little.  Things are improving however.  Plants are growing, perhaps a little slow but are growing never the less.  We have replanted beans for a second crop and already we have plants in six days that are bigger than the first planting after three weeks.    

My new little babies!

Zucchini and Cucumbers are finally showing they are not just a pretty plant with lots of orange and yellow flowers!

I apologize that I do not have an orange hat to show for scale, however I find beer to be an decent alternative.  and as you can see the Broccoli is finally starting to grow higher than the weeds.

The only disappointing aspect of the day is that apparently the day shift was having a siesta!

And best of all, that is an actual potato that is growing under that potato plant.  It almost made me cry!!

So we may have gotten  a slow start, however we are planning on a second half that will more than make up for it.  I almost forgot the best part

Just look at those darling little beauties!  We may not have the quantity yet that I am striving for. However I will do my best to grow the most flavorful and perfect veggies that are available!!!

Have a fantastic weekend, and I hope to see everyone out at Crossroads Festival in Lima Aug 3rd.  Bubbaloo Farms will be at the Gulf station by the bed race, and Anna will be at the church lawn with Homegrown designs by Bubbaloo Farm with lots of goodies.  Get out and enjoy the weather!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  David Kirkwood
