The View From Up Here

Here's a picture of my garden as seen from my bedroom.






I just took this photo, so I can take more pictures at later dates and then compare them.  From left to right I have tomatoes, butternut squash, cucumbers, eggplant, cantaloupes, peppers, onions, carrots, green beans, blueberries, celery, raspberries and strawberries. I also have one watermelon plant, one summer squash and a zucchini plant mixed in there. I had to replace eight of my tomato plants this week because the wind just ripped a few apart. I can't stand the wind. I know I live on the top of a hill, but still. My strawberries are doing great and I should expect a huge crop closer to the end of the month (I think). 

The deck is progressing a bit too. We have our concrete posts in. He'll be out to work on it tomorrow.

Ella had her track and field day today at school. It was raining a bit this morning so they got a little later start, but it was fun watching Ella go running. She was happy to see us there. She's only got a few days of school left.

Gearing up for a trip to see Grandma and Grandpa too. Then birthday week after we get back. It's a busy June.

We enjoyed the photo of your garden, that's a lot of work (building, dirt hauling, planting etc). What a selection you have. It is almost like something you would plant if you were on the "ark".

Looking forward to pictures of your deck. Maybe you will show some in the different stages. It will really but the finishing touches on your backyard.

It is fun watching the kids on track and field day. I remember going to Ryan's. We would like to have watched Ella too. I bet she is looking forward to the summer (understatement).

Enjoy the weekend.
