Pictures to Share!

Here are a few pictures that I have been meaning to post but have been totally busy.

Father and Daughter

The next pictures are from our pond. These are Lily Pads that I bought last year from Walmart for a reasonable $5.97/plant. You put the plant basket in the water and wala'. No pulling them out for winter storage. My kind of plants!

These are pictures of our garden. Thanks to "Mother Nature", it is growing like crazy. This is a picture of the corn and popcorn.

This picture shows the many rows of peas. TO the left of the peas are radishes and carrots and lettuce(which you really cant see yet). This picture shows you half of our garden. The other half is occupied by Green Beans, Cantalope, Watermelon, Pickling and regular cucumbers, squash and zucchini. I have also planted gigantic sunflowers that are just about 5" tall. I have never planted the gigantics so I am excited to see what they do. I remember as a kid having sunflowers in our garden and I just loved looking at them!

This picture is hard to see but it is the many different types of pepper plants - habanero, red chili, mexibells, cayenne, green, banana pepper and jalapeno's. (in the front) and the many tomato plants (in the back).

What a HUGE garden! Wonderful job. Let us know how the sunflowers do/look. I didn't have luck with mine last year because of those damn squirrels eating the seads the moment I walked in the house. So, with that in mind, I will admire other peoples achievements with sunflowers for the time being :)
