Just thought you'd enjoy and little New Hampshire "GREEN" today. My garden is coming right along, though it is about 1/3 the size of past years. The reason for that is we will be filling in the back end to level it off and Mr. D thinks that may happen this summer sometime. So... the chickens have full reign over 2/3 of our garden space eating weeds and bugs and not really doing that good of a job, I might add. They have cleared about 1/2 of the unused space and the other 1/2 is thick with weeds.
What I did plant this year is thriving thus far. We've had perfect growing weather so far. A little rain, a little sun/heat.
I was reminded of a passage of scripture which I have used for the title of this post. The whole chapter is lovely, but I thought of verse 11:
"For as the earth brings forth its bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations"
|The tomatoes, Jet Star, and Amish Paste|
|Jacob Cattle beans for shell and dry beans|
|The strawberries: these are the June bearers which I replanted into rows this year after they had berries. I will be mulching these after they are done spreading their daughters.|
|The peas, haven't harvested any yest, but they've gone way past their fencing and are loaded with blossoms and small pods. Soon we'll have some fresh peas.|
|Finally going to have a blueberry crop. This is year 3 for these 6 new bushes. When we moved we had to leave behind our beautiful blueberry bushes. It was VERY sad, but the new ones are starting to produce now. Thank you Lord.|
|Parsnips gone wild. I have never had parsnips to this (biennial), But they won't be harvested till next spring anyway. Hope they're not too woody.|
|wildflowers that came back from seed... 1/2 are in the chicken yard and 1/2 in the herb garden. We'll see how many survive after construction ends.|
|One side of the greenhouse. Got some little stars from the craft store and this is my favorite combination of flowers for the window box. I plant these every year. One 6 pack of each will do 2 boxes, so VERY economical.|
|This is the sign Joanna made for me a couple years ago. The little birdhouse in the window box is supposed to be attached to the branch of the tree, but it came off and I haven't reattached it yet.|
|Happy July from the Millett Farm.|
