July 2016 Photos From The Homestead


LilyPadsBloom

The lily pads in our garden pond have been blooming and they’re beautiful.

.

July Apples

 This apple tree was only planted a few months ago but seems to be producing well already.

.

Kale

The squash and the kale weren’t nearly this close together when I planted them but it doesn’t seem to be hurting the growth at all.

.

Beans

I guess the beans weren’t satisfied with the space I gave them so they found a bench to sit on.

.

Bell Peppers

It won’t be long now and we will be enjoying our bell peppers.

.

BigBoyTomato

Still no red tomatoes but I see that Big Boy hiding back there.

.

Zucchini

That zucchini is almost there, I don’t like them to get too big but just a little bigger than that.

.

 Comfrey

This comfrey was planted from a crown about six weeks ago and is growing like crazy. I have big plans for all my comfrey plants.

.

Cucumbers

Two things my garden must have is tomatoes and cucumbers and these are doing great, I’m already wondering how many jars of pickles I will be canning this year.

.

Green Wall

My mulberry tree, pole bean trellis, and cucumber trellis have created a wonderful wall of green.

.

Stevia

First year growing stevia, it seems to be doing well and I’m anxious to sweeten up my life a bit with those leaves.

.

JulyBlueberries

We’ve already eaten so many blueberries and there are only a few more still coming in. We have several bushes and still they hardly ever make it to the kitchen we just eat them right in the garden.

.

JulyGrapes

We have soooo many grapes. I see many jars of jelly and maybe a couple bottles of wine in our future.
