The tomatoes are FINALLY coming in...here and there. I've resigned to the fact that we'll not get enough at once to can, but probably have too many cherry tomatoes for ourselves alone. What to do? Time to make neighbor baskets I guess. I was really hoping to can tomatoes this year.
If you came to visit, you might have to step around the tomatoes taking over the front step railing.
Carrots are coming.
Our "Watermelon" turned orange.
This was growing before we bought pumpkin seeds so I have NO clue how this came to volunteer in our garden.
The volunteer sunflowers are going to seed, supplying the birds with a treat, and a few more volunteers for us I hope.
And these beauties are possibly the neatest thing to watch grow. No wonder they're called eggplants. It certainly does look like the plant is painfully and slowly laying an egg.
I love it.
The corn is done, and we won't be planting it again. :( We just don't have the room for it to be worth while, which makes me sad because my kids like corn. The more we've gotten into this urban homesteading, the more grossed out we get when we buy produce in the store full of chemicals and pesticides. We can't afford to buy organic, which is why we'd like to grow as much as possible.
Speaking of organic, would you care for some organic weeds? Our bunny girls LOVE them. I don't know why I didn't think to feed them these sooner. I'm just a beginner urban homesteader. :) I've been picking them bucket loads each day as I work in the garden, and they devour them. I'd rather turn good organic weeds into good organic bunny fertilizer than just throw it in our green waste. These cyclical things make me very happy.
