It rained really good last night my husband said.  I was good and asleep, way past the point of caring but yet happy when he told me.  It looks like rain again this morning. Yipee. We are getting some great garden rain!  All the plants seemed to all grow a foot overnight. 

Here is a little garden tour:

Not every tomato plant looks like this but I'm getting excited that someday in the future, I'll be having a real garden tomato.  There is nothing like it.

The white half runner beans are well, running!  They are also clinging to each other and anything else they can find.  ha ha.

Listen, using the grass for mulch gave me allergies bad.  I had some animal bedding stuff  and decided to use that as mulch.  It's just in these beans because like it's kind of expensive.

These beans that are growing up our teepes we made are called Rattlesnake.  They are really starting to climb.  I planted lettuce in the middle of each teepee yesterday.  

All of lettuce that we have out there now has now bolted with the hot weather we've been having.  So, I'm hoping the shade in the middle will grow us some great lettuce.

I'm not sure my onions are going to be huge but I'm so impressed so far.  Most of them are way past the golf ball stage!  Yipee!  

You see that bent over green part of the onion in the middle?  That's the part you need to break off right now.   Just use your hands and break the green part just below the bent over part.   They will stop growing if you don't.  

How's your garden growing if you have one or just tell me about your neck of the woods.

We’re mainly picking tomatoes and peppers. Sweet potatoes are growing for a fall harvest and my husband just got seed potatoes to plant for fall too.
Your beans look aamzing!

Belinda said...

Several good books to choose from today, thank you, Vickie. Your garden looks beautiful. I didn't know that about the onions (breaking the green part).

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Oh man your picking tomatoes already! I love that you can grow potatoes for fall..our first date is too soon.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

I'm glad you got some Belinda. Yes when the green part starts to bend cut it off.

Kathy said...

Your garden looks great!!!
If I could only grow one thing, it would have to be tomatoes, and you will have some before I do. Thanks for the onion tip too.
Glad you had some rain.
Have a great weekend.

Jenny said...

I'm so glad you got some good rain. And your garden is beautiful...much prettier than mine is.

I no longer am able to garden, but I love looking at yours! Very nice and I'm so glad you are getting rain. It's pouring outside right now in my little corner of East Tennessee. That will be helpful for weeding my lilies of the valley and ferns in my front planter. Today I am sewing a new face mask. I found a great pattern online that you can custom make to your face measurements. I made one and really like the fit. It is also better at keeping my glasses from fogging up. My friend wanted to try one for herself. She doesn't have a computer and printer, so I had her tell me her measurements over the phone and I printed off one for her. I took it to her this morning. I hope it turns out satisfactorily for her. She was having quite a hard time with the ones she had previously made. I'm also cleaning out my pantry and making a special shelf for out-of-date items (earlier than 2019), so I can use those up first. I made a poppy seed Bundt cake last week with a cake mix that was out-of-date in 2016. It was very good.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Thank you but I'm taking pictures of the best parts!

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

Tomatoes for me too and green beans for husband. A garden for him without beans isn't much of garden Hwha

I love the sounds of that mask. Being comfortable is everything in a mask. Just made one for grandson. He has to have a certain pattern and a metal piece for the nose. I used a metal piece from an old n95 mask.
I need to organize my pantry too. It's good to stay busy!

KayM said...

The wire I've been using in masks is bell wire. I got it at Home Depot. It is 2 vinyl covered wires (copper?) that I twist together and then bend back the ends so they won't poke out. It works pretty well, but I did have to buy the whole spool, which was about $10 or a little more. I didn't know how many masks I would be making so I thought it would be worth it. No problem with rusting, when they are washed.

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

I love that -I'll look for that soon. It's well worth it.
