Gardening in West Texas- Surviving the Leaving
I have to say taking an 8 day vacation from our little homestead was the one thing that really worried me. If you have followed my struggles this year with my garden you know how hard I have worked. While everything is looking a little Ehhhhhh....despite good effort and some rain, for the most part everything is alive and doing well. The sunflower has reached its final height at over 8.5 feet! I have never seen a flower so big.lol Here are some pictures from around the garden.
|Today's bean harvest! I had them for lunch they were yummy!|
|crazy crazy sweet 100 tomato plant! |
We have about 30 tomatoes that will be ready this week.
|Garden overview, as you can see it is all getting HUGE! Walking is tough.|
|And YES WE HAVE BEES! |
Not a ton but 5-10 at any given time is a big improvement.
