June Weeding

 Before I weeded.  Since the days of rain,
the weeds got very thick.

 After I weeded! Nice and clean. You can barely see the
turnips, beets and carrots. Not too many made it this year. I seeded twice. Also two leaves of a round Zucchini plant. Love the round zucchini. They are tasty.

Bush beans and Shasta daisies. Tomatoes below. I used eggshells and coffee grounds in the dirt when I planted and I have been feeding them Fish Fertilizer weekly.  They look pretty healthy so far.

Red Peppers

Large container full of dry red peppers.  They were hanging in my spare bedroom all winter long. Now they are ready to crumble and put in the spice cabinet.
One year I just threw them in the blender and chopped them up but the second I opened the lid, the powder was so intense that I sneezed for about a full minute. Be very careful not to breath in the fumes from the peppers.

Thanks for stopping by.

Garden in June

Red Bird is from my friend Darla - she made it for me and the garden. Isn't it cute? Thanks Darla.

Angles of the Rye - I read that I need to harvest in August. Cut off and place in a pillow case and beat with a shoe. Then pour it from one container to another to let the seeds separate.

On another note - the glass hot house had issues as I left it open to cool the box then it rained like crazy. 3 Brussell Spout plants, 2 cabbage, 2 tomato and 1 red cabbage survived which I transplanted. I'll post more when they grow a little larger.

Check soon - I will be selling again on Etsy.
