As expected, Royce has done a fantastic job with our garden this year. Our first meals were actually the weeks that the twins were still in the hospital. It was nice to come home to meals with fresh lettuce, arugula, and broccoli. This was our first year with broccoli and it turned out delicious.
The picture below was taken when Royce harvested the broccoli about 3 weeks ago.
In the back of the picture the tomatoes are on the left and cucumbers & cantaloupe on the right.
Sweet corn lines the fence on the left, and then moving right we have 3 rows of green beans, the broccoli, and lettuce. Pepper plants are hidden by the broccoli.
The next picture below was taken today. You can see the corn, tomatoes, and green beans have grown substantially in 3 weeks. The lettuce and broccoli are done, and our cantaloupe and cucumbers in the back are growing as well. We had our first green beans last night and I forgot how good they are! We have also had a few tomatoes already, but they were pretty small and Chloe & I just ate them ourselves. The tomatoes and cantaloupe have SO many blooms right now!
I appreciate all the work that Royce puts into the garden. I was a much bigger help last summer than I have been so far this year but hopefully I can get my hands dirty in there a little more often now. We both enjoy the produce so much and I like that our kids can be involved in the garden as well. But none of it would be here without all of Royce's work.
And this is just a cute picture:) Amelia isn't much bigger than our remote!
