The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

Mid June Garden Update

June 12, 2013

The Peppers and eggplants in containers are doing very good this year.

Nice Shiny peppers, now if we can just keep critters from eating them.

A baby eggplant

The sage plant has grown out all over the large container.

Wave Petunias are now trailing over the baskets.

This is one of the cucumber A frames. We are havesting several cucumbers a day now.


Another cucumer trellis.

Hot peppers in the pepper wagon

One of the tomatoes starting to ripen

These are determinate tomatoes in this pot. I prefer indeterminate but accidentally got a determinate. Determinate tomatoes have a certain amount of set fruit and after they ripen that is it for them. The indeterminate tomatoes will vine and produce all summer into the fall.

Another A frame cucumber

Some of the first cucumbers there have been many more since this picture.

We had to pick this eggplant early along with two others because of what was on the other side.

This is the other side, the squirrels are now helping themselves and I am not happy about this.

Tomatoes are turning red now.

The tomatoes are not over the top of the A frame.

This cucumber is getting ready for picking.

We have been eating zucchini almost ever day for several weeks now and I am still not tired of eating it. Check out my squash soup recipe in the cooking from scratch section.

We do not use and fungicide or pesticides and this mold is what we have to deal with on our squash leaves.

I planted the cucumbers beside our fence and have been guiding the new growth to wind around the fence. This is a squash plant to the right side.

Shhhhhh, don't tell the squirrels there are more eggplants.....
