Garden version 20.13

Yes, it's that time of the year: time for the yearly garden blog post.  I'm pretty pleased with the garden this year and it appears to be a fruit year as well.  Hopefully we will diligently care for the garden throughout the summer so we will have a great harvest - looking forward to doing some canning this August . . .
We did get a couple loads of nice mink manure (well, it was a little fresher than it should be, but still . . .) and that helped a ton.  Jared was also able to take some time and some funds and redo the watering system this year and it seems to be a little more efficient than before.  All in all, as I said, I am pleased.  And it's been so hot and dry that the weeds aren't even getting as crazy as usual. :)
Lots of potatoes this year along with peppers and zucchini in the foreground and melons, squash, pumpkins and cucumbers in the far left

Onions, carrots, lettuce, broccoli, beans and peas

Tomato plants

The fruit salad tree actually has plums this year and one nectarine along with the peaches.  So excited!

"Millions of peaches, peaches for free.  Millions of peaches, peaches for me"

Golden delicious apples abound

We even have a lot of Macintosh this year!

The pear tree has always been a great producer

Even our new d'anjou pear tree has a pear on it.

Can't wait for these honey-crisp apples


And, so far so good, our pumpkins look healthy and strong.  Crossing fingers they stay that way!  Hoping that the chickens like squash bugs if those insects show up.
