Bountiful Backyard

Rob and I plant some sort of a garden every year. In our five years of marriage we have never been able to harvest anything from that garden. This year we have finally succeeded. It helps that we have a nice back yard with a big garden patch and that we've set up the watering on an automatic drip system. It has been so great to head outside every night after work and see what has been growing.

The start of our Raspberries.

The one pear growing on our pear tree.

Strawberries. It is amazing that any strawberries actually turn red because Robbie's favorite thing to do is pick them - when they are nice and green.

Two tomato plants. Planted the same day. One is growing to be the biggest tomato plant I have ever seen. The other is not.

Apple tree.

There are so many peaches on our peach tree. I hope they all keep growing.

The single blueberry growing on the smallest of 4 blueberry bushes.

And...that is not all I will be growing this summer. Along with the fruits and vegetables will be a baby. Ready to pick December 2010.
