Cottage Garden Variety


Green has never been a favorite color of mine until now. Everything is growing up green and I'm loving it!

Cucumbers





Sugar Snap Peas

I picked a pea pod today and shared the peas with Lilah.  They were delicious! (and tiny!)




Hot Peppers

My son-in-law and I are the only hot pepper lovers in my family.  Last summer, my one hot pepper plant yielded more peppers than I could count.  I expect my plants this year will produce a lot of peppers.  I'm hoping my neighbors like them!



Tomatoes

I've never seen so many tomatoes on a plant before. I've two different plants. One is large Big Boy type tomato and the other is a smaller tomato.


Enjoy!

    1. Thank you, Terri! The flowers that grow producing the fruit/vegetables are different colors. The string bean flowers are such a pretty purple color.

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
