Saturday On The Farm

It’s been a great week here in Kentucky. The temps have been a little cooler and we’ve had some rain. So the gardens are all doing great!
I love the little daisy like flowers on the Feverfew in the herb garden. So pretty and dainty.

The Echinacea is starting to bloom. I love to take pictures of the beautiful flowers.

We transplanted two Mullein plants from beside the road to the herb garden. The other one suffered more chock than this one. But it’s making a comeback.

And they are starting to bloom!

In the vegetable garden, the cucumbers are growing well. Yes, those are catalogs and magazines as mulch. I ran out of cardboard and newspapers. Have to keep the weeds down somehow. lol

The green beans are doing great. I don’t know for sure what kind of green beans these are. I got them from my kids piano teacher about 6 years ago. They are the only beans she’s ever grown, the only beans her mother ever grew, and the only beans her grandmother ever grew. She said they’re like a half runner, but they’re not half runners. So I don’t know what they are, other than good! They freeze great, too.

The tomatoes are doing well, also. This is taller than it looks, the cardboard is not lying flat on the ground.

Something keeps eating my raspberries before I can pick them! I think it’s the chickens. Rotten chickens. Lucky for them, they give me eggs. But they better lay off my raspberries!

These are the black raspberries. A few are starting to ripen. yum…..

That’s a few highlights from my garden this week. How are your gardens doing?
