I was able to get these before the deer got into the garden and destroyed them.
Blue Lakes, Yellows and Zucchinis. They are tasty. Spring is here but the temps are already creeping up above the 90 degree mark!
I have shaded the tomatoes this year in order to see if that will help prolong their life.

Well I can see my two rows of spinach now.

Today is going to be in the 80's so it
will dry things out and I may get all
the garden in before Memorial Day.

Love those string beans.

Lots of cool weather and a whole lot of rain this spring in S. Missouri.

Five tomatoes is all that I put out this year in my little garden. Too much shade in my back yard for much else anyway, but I have managed to squeeze in some green beans, cucumbers, and peppers a few times in years past.

The tomatoes will be doing good to have any fruit before the first of July due to the cool and wet spring. Early Girl, Cherokee Purple, Parks Whopper, German Queen, and one called Giant that my Grandson sprouted for me along with a few sunflowers. I did see one bloom so far.

Front yard has enough sun for grapes and I have three four year old vines of Sunbelt (University of Arkansas) breed from the Concord. They will finally have enough grapes to make up a five gallon batch of wine this year I think.

For the last two springs I had gathered up and frozen enough wild raspberries to make up a five gallon batch of wine last summer. It is about ready to bottle now and my sample tasted great. I usually give much of my wine away as gifts, but I do save a gallon or two for myself.

Well, the beans are about done. I'll wait until the squash wind down and then till them both in. Likely replant with something. Haven't decided just what. Maybe, Butternut squash.

The summer squash are producing well now, and tomatoes have just started turning red. I had a couple fresh bacon/tomato sandwiches yesterday and they were perfect.

The okra isn't ready to produce yet, as well the cowpeas and the silver queen sweet corn. So far, the rains have been coming at good intervals.

My tomatoes took a little frost damage last week. They are just starting to take
off. I am about to start planting the rest of the garden.

I took the kids up to the mountain to look for morrels last weekend. We had
never found any but I was looking for an excuse for a walk in the woods. The
wife and kids were getting bummed after 1.5 hours and no shrooms. Then I
found 1 and things turned around. All of a sudden my daughter found 3 and my
sone found 3. Seven morrels to go with the steak for dinner. Boy they were
good! My wife and kids were thrilled and can't wait to go again!

My little vegetable garden had a rough start, but things are starting to grow now. Hope for a good season.
