Surprises!!

Well I'll be!  Nick found this wild blueberry bush in our woods.  Crazy.  This little bush tells me that if I can't get the blueberries to work in our yard than there is something wrong with my gardening. In a way, it's taunting me. 


This is just today's harvest!  I think it may be the last of the purple cauliflower and the broccoli though.  We have two more purple cauliflower plants out there but they are no where close to being done and it's hot out!  Try 90's with no end in sight.


Not only did we pick the above items from the garden today, we also picked these wild blackberries!


This is our current stash of squash that I will be pawning off on my friends, family, and neighbors.  You may notice the first mature winter squash (It's a delicata squash variety called Green Goliath) came in.  We are enjoying things really early this year.   The delicata is from the first flower buds so they aren't very big. 


I've had a couple awesome suprises this week I haven't even mentioned yet so I'll plenty more in the way of updates for Monday I assure you!

Garden surprises are the best!

I envy your blueberries. Mine just don't seem to like it here. Another year of no berries for us. :(

That's a lot of squash! My summer squash is just starting so I'm sure it won't be long til I'm having to give away lots of produce.

Everytime you post your garden bounty I get so jealous! So far I have one cherry tomato the size of a large pea.

You are lucky about the blueberries. Wild are the best kind!

AWESOME! And man, you've got a ton of stuff already! How long ago did you plant????? Mine isn't even close to harvesting anything! (of course, I had to replant a time or three already, lol....but....)
