The garden is growing again!

These last few days of no rain have been great for the garden.  Temps have been in the mid 70s here, and the sun has been popping in and out.  I officially harvested my first cucumber of the year (but forgot to take a picture, as I was so excited to eat it!)  And the green beans are finally blooming!!!  I'm going to actually get some this year!  Also, although the plants are obviously stunted, with most leaves being about the size of a quarter, the nasturtiums are getting ready to bloom!

Here's to a beautiful August!


  1. hi!
    I just found your blog, and wanted to say hi! Love your header picture! I became a follower and look forward to getting to know you better. I am a Mom to two girls, if you get a chance stop by my blog and say hi! I've always wanted to visit Alaska so looking forward to your pics.

  2. Thanks for following! That picture is one I took from my front porch! The view here is amazing!

  3. You have a view like THAT from your front porch? That is one incredible view! I'm jealous of your temps in the mid-70s. It barely goes that low at nights in Indiana (where I spend weekends) and I'd be lucky to see below-100 degree after the sun goes down in Texas (where I work during the week). Congratulations on your first cucumber, I hope it's the first one of many more to come!

  4. Jamie.. what the heck do we have to do to make it stop raining? I think I have had enough of the liquid sun shine.

    I actually can't wait to go hunting to see the SUN!

  5. sounds great! I'm just noticing the photo in your header - how beautiful!


Hi guys! Due to spam, I am moderating, but I'll be as quick as I can!
