Our garden

Well, our garden has been treating us very well this year. Sadie loves to pick our peas and eat them raw, and we have picked a TON of green beans. We have picked a handful of cherry tomatoes every other day or so, a few cucumbers and some bell peppers.

These were all picked on one night. Guess what we had the next day for dinner? FAJITAS! They were delicious.

I just picked our first "big" tomatoes that have turned red. They look so yummy. I can't wait to slice into them. And I got one cucumber too.

As you can see, two of our tomatoes look like this on the bottom. Anyone know why this happens? Are they just rotten?

Anyway, we are really pleased with our garden so far and we can't wait until our corn starts getting ready to be picked!

I've had the same problem with my tomatoes before. It is called blossom end rot and it happens when the plant doesn't get enough water and then gets a lot. You can prevent it by keeping them consistently moist.

It happens to zucchini too.

Yay! I love having a garden, we are just starting to pick stuff off. Our tomatoes barely make it in the house sometimes though because my hubby and Luke eat them like apples (nose wrinkle) You're peppers look beautiful! I hope mine start getting bigger like that!
