While I don’t really expect to see any actual beans growing from the decimated bean plants in my garden, it’s nice to see a few green leaves and flowers rise up out of the brown stalks. Continue reading
I may be a little paranoid, but I think my cucumber leaves are turning yellow. Or at least the tops of them. We’ve had a lot of rain lately, so I’m wondering if that’s the culprit. Or maybe it’s just that the younger leaves are yellow and will turn darker green as they mature. Continue reading
Caterpillars or some type of fruitworm loving on my tomatoes?
I didn’t expect growing vegetables to necessarily be easy here in central Texas. And it isn’t. Neither the peas nor beans seem to be thriving; in fact, the peas look like they’re burning up. At the same time, I’m not sure what’s wrong with the beans. Continue reading
Peas and beans.
It’s been four weeks since I planted my garden. One month, and everything, thankfully, has survived. By this time next month, I hope to be eating peas, beans and maybe cucumbers.
Tomatoes and sweet red peppers.
Cherry tomatoes and some lettuce.
Cucumbers, onions, chives and basil.
Peas and beans, April 15.

Peas on the left, beans on the right.
After a long soccer weekend in San Antonio, it was good to be home and inspect the garden. Continue reading
Above, the beans tonight, April 5. Below, on April 3.
After a fun Easter weekend in San Antonio, daughter and I arrived home to find out it had rained in Georgetown. And, oh, how the garden loved the mother’s milk! Continue reading
The four raised beds that make up the vegetable garden on April 3.
It’s been windy here in central Texas lately and that seems to be the norm for spring. I staked the big tomatoes a week or so ago and I think I’ll have to do the same to the cherry tomatoes soon, too. The wind really takes its toll on them. Continue reading
Overnight, my hill of one cucumber expanded to four.
Love how the cukes sprouted up overnight. Today’s hot, muggy weather was perfect for them, I think. Here are a few other garden photos.
All four raised beds.
The second hilll of cucumber seeds also broke through the dirt.
The beans, from ground level.
A northern view of the garden.
It’s difficult to tell how much the tomatoes ate growing, but I’m pretty sure it’s not as fast as the other veggies.
