Week 8

Today's host for the Think Christmas Blog Hop are


Week 8 and the garden is doing great! I am finally getting some nice harvests. They are not huge, but I am harvesting something so that makes me happy. This will just be a short update this week as the garden has been a mud pit for the past 3 days and I couldn’t get out to take good picks.
Here is the main garden.

As you can see I went on a bit of weed pulling marathon and I have been paying for it for the past 3 days. At least I can walk My mother also came out and helped pick weeds in the mixed plot. It is looking beautiful. Once all the weeds were gone in that section Mr.P and I got the trellises up for the cucumbers. I think it might be a little late in the season to put them up....but we did it anyhow. I think it is so pretty!

Everything else in the main garden is about the same. I have beans now, but I didn’t take a picture and the cabbages are HUGE. I will have to take them all in this week for sure.
The cauliflowers have come a long way and I think within the next week I might get my first harvest!

The new garden is really taken off! The pumpkins are making a run for it and the spaghetti squash had A LOT of flowers. Fingers crossed that they actually produce something within the next month! 

My cauliflowers in the new garden are not doing too well in fact they are a little....umm.....GREEN!!! 

Not sure how that happened. I could have sworn this was cauliflower, but I am very happy to see that it is broccoli!

Have a great day


  1. How fun! That cauliflower looks beautiful!

  2. Pretty broccoli. Which reminds me I have to go out and pick some tomorrow morning.

  3. Oh, lucky you with cauliflower-mine bolted this year in the heat.
    Don't let yours go much longer, they like to turn yellow overnight.

  4. Great looking cauliflower and broccoli! We're hoping to have a fall crop this year. We'll see.

  5. Hehe, love the surprise broccoli. And the cauli looks delish

  6. That sure is a pretty head of cauliflower!

  7. Wow Mrs. P!! Your garden looks great! What I wouldn't do for a head of cauliflower like that!!
