Garden Update 7/31/15: Getting ready to Pick Beans!



The green beans are full and ready to be picked and canned!  I'm really excited on how pretty they look!   We like them full with a good sized bean inside them.   At the same time you can't get them too full or they will taste awful.

There are places in the garden where I decided not to weed.  The beets were getting eaten by our resident ground hog so I decided maybe if he couldn't see them, maybe he wouldn't eat them.   So far it's working...I think it's just luck.

My weed picture:

With the recent heat Michigan was having the weeding stopped when I got to the back of the garden at the tomatoes.   I never did get back to weeding the front of my garden where the cabbage is planted.  Thankfully we received some relief on Wednesday with some much needed rain.   Maybe I can work on those weeds in between canning.







This morning I helping out with a funeral dinner for one of the church members.   I'm taking cabbage roll casserole and vegetables from the garden.   


Cucumbers, tomatoes, and banana peppers from the garden.
