Joyed and Whelmed


Joyed and Whelmed.
Not Overjoyed and OverWhelmed.
Just, perfectly: Joyed And Whelmed.

Sun is bright, but not hot. It's comfortable, not Humid. The garden is bountiful and fresh. And today's someone's special day.

Top right, is a half a bowl of Raspberries. half, because I moved too quick and the other half ended up in the bottom of the briar patch of thorny branches. In the basket, above, is red Sweet Cherry Tomato, White Cherry Tomato (yellow colour) a few test carrot (they're too small) and some of the last of my peas. (under carrot) Top, left, on the plate, is a Roma Tomato, and two rounder Beefsteak Tomato. ALSO, 3 green tomato that fell. Bottom three on plate are a small round Black Sea Man Tomato (round, green and some red) and two Black Tula (weird shaped Green/red). Just off left is the leftovers from Friday's picking.

Below These are the Spaghetti Squash, growing on my vines. Larger one is about the size of a small football. Smaller is about the size of a softball.



Above One more Spaghetti Squash growing. Needs some more support. I will add it soon. It is baseball sized, now.

Below Many Sweet Banana Pepper. named for their shape, not their flavor.



Above The Purple Pepper, slightly sweeter than the Yell and Red Sweet Bell. Much thinner wall.

Below The Lettuces and Herbs growing.



Above The Arugula, coming in nicely. Waiting on Romaine Lettuce, and some more butter crisp.

Below Lastly, some maintenance. I pulled these two dead pots' worth of Peas. I harvested plenty of peas. We never really cooked them. They were so good fresh, my oldest daughter and I ate them as snacks.


Normally, I am in my garden every day, although, lately, every two weekends I am away, at a craft fair. I am enjoying seeing the big changes over time, as it is hard to notice, day to day.

Better Is ONE DAY, in this garden...
...I am THANKFUL for the wonderful woman who inspired me, both with song and with the GroVid Challenge. Thank You and Happy Birthday, Dreemie, @dreemsteem, Pirate Captain, Welcome Wagon, @dreemport, Talia, and so many more.
