May Garden Update

Hope everyone is having a great week. We have finally been getting some rain! Not only is the rain nice because we need it so badly, but because it gives me a chance to catch up on my blogs. 

Here’s what our garden is looking like this week…in pictures of course. 🙂

I took the photos on my ipad this week. I am trying to familiarize myself with the camera and see how it looks.  It would eliminate a step in blogging, uploading the images, but not sure how I feel about the quality of the images. Anyways, the garden…


We have a little bird nest in the upcycled tire  container we made last month!

The sweet potato runners are starting to grow up the kid’s teepee.

We are picking the last of the peas.


Already had to move the herbs into the shade of the banana trees. Summer in Florida is here to stay.

The cucumbers have started to appear.

We have tons of blooms on all the pepper plants!

Looks like the last head of celery is going to make it!

The littlest gardener always keeps things lively in the garden. She decided the pretend to be a peacock with the freshly picked fennel. 🙂

    1. Thanks. Yes, we are hoping for a small harvest this summer. We are going to close the biggest raised bed and replenish the dirt so I will be anxious to get that back up in August.

  1. I think the iPhone photos worked just fine, especially for the internet. Of course, little peacock girl was my favorite, as well as the bird nest in the tire. I have never gardened but you are inspiring me to get out there and do something. Thanks.

  2. Hello,
    I am with Florida Organic Growers and we are hosting a Summer Snapshot Contest via our facebook page. The contest is very simple, all you have to do is send a photo of a flower or vegetable to the Florida Organic Grower facebook page and the picture with the most likes at the end of the month wins a really cool wall decal. If you would like to participate just send us a photo or if you could promote the contest on your blog we would really appreciate it. Just send us a message over facebook if you would like more information.
