It's a really long story [excuse] as to why I didn't get the garden pictures taken OR posted yesterday.  At about 9 o'clock last night I said to the Irishman--CRAP! I forgot to take my garden pictures today!  And he looked at me like I was nuts and said, so take 'em tomorrow.  You can imagine the look I gave him when I said, WEDNESDAYS wonderful world of garden????  On THURSDAY ????  And he just shook his head.


SO, here it is Thursday morning. And cool, cool, cool.  Looks like it's gonna rain any minute, which would be fine with me. Not that anything is in dire need of watering right now. I just like rain.

 The chickens are out and fed and watered. The other assorted and sundry critters are tended. The coffee is made and I have finished off the cantaloupe. Last nights supper was a big plate of potatoes and eggs and toast and chunked cantaloupe that needed eating. It was heavenly. However, when Mr Man got it out to put some in his lunch this morning, he left it out on the counter and rather than try to find a spot for it, I just ate it. Wasn't really that much of it left anyway...

  Okay--here's the garden this morning...
Lettuces-the bronze romaine and the green leaf are both doing fine.

Between last weeks storm and the cats, the onions get a little bent out of shape, but are growing well.

French Breakfast Radishes

Edamame !!  (weeded and everything)

Potatoes are starting to flower...this one is one of our seed potatoes from last years garden.

Snow peas..climbing the string trellis

 Blue Lake Bush Beans..mmm...we love our green beans around these parts...

I love the look of these garlic chives flowering...

The tomatoes all snug in their little straw bed mulch.

One of two eggplants I put in a few days ago..

Butternut squash

Butterbeans!!  Growing up the teepee poles just like they're s'posed to !!

These little cukes are planted in the center of the teepee, because cucumbers love pole beans...they're in both teepees...

Close up of the butters!!


 And that's the end of the vegetable portion of our program. I didn't get a shot of the quinoa, because it's out front and the grass was wet. lol

 Here are some of my deck pots though...


The Mothers day Herb pot

Mixed pot with ivy, geranium and million bells petunias

And the colorful hardy vincas that can weather these hot dry summers like a miracle.

And there you have it...Thursdays Wednesdays garden tour.  lol

  I'm off to sit with my neighbor for a few's still chilly here and hasn't rained yet. Looks like any minute though....the AC is off and the windows are open...ahhh...midwestern summers.

I like the looks of your garden Annie,

It has poured down rain here since early morning. I can't believe it is raining here and not where you are. Usually it is the other way around.

I hope you have a good weekend.

LOL! That is why I have never joined anything online that has a certain day attached to the posting or made any specific schedule for myself. My life is too uncontrollable. The garden looks fantastic, though...even on a Thursday. ;)
