Garden Goodies

Lots of veggies are beginning to ripen in our garden! :-)  

We've been enjoying lettuce for quite some time now, but other than that, we've only taken in a couple of cucumbers, some grape tomatoes, and a few peppers. Now, lots more are beginning to ripen ~ yay!

Grape Tomatoes



Bell Peppers



We've also been able to harvest a couple of our herbs for several weeks. We've been picking cilantro and basil and drying them out and storing them in mason jars. Both of these plants are growing monstrously huge! The rosemary is not growing as well as those two, and the oregano is not receiving much sunlight because of where it was planted. It's being covered up by the squash & cucumber leaves. They are growing, nonetheless, and we'll harvest what we are able to.  I might try to transplant the oregano to a different spot.

Beautiful Basil

Creeping Cilantro

The garden is starting to look like a jungle! Praise God for rain, sunshine, and fruitful plants!

Praying that I am connected to The Vine, the Lord Jesus, so that my life can be as spiritually fruitful as these plants! Love how the Scriptures give such beautiful pictures to understand important truths.

Are any of you picking veggies or herbs from the garden?

"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."  ~John 15:5

Looks great. Enjoy! We're anxious to see how our garden's doing when we get back.
