Garden Update

You may recall a couple of weeks ago, Will wrote a blog about our garden.  If you missed that; you should check it out and have some thing to compare the following pictures and information to.

Will often times tells  me that I should not write a posts called “Saturday Sweat.”  He says that it would be more accurate to call it the “Sunday Sweat” because we work our butts off and work up a good suntan out in our yard/garden.  Well today was quite the day for the garden.  We had several unruly tomato plants to tie up, spinach and lettuce to do a final harvest on, green beans to pick, blanch, and freeze, our first potato harvest, AND Will built a raised bed garden today too! Garden Update - 2

Our spinach and lettuce have been done growing for a while now, and if we didn’t harvest them it would all go bad out there in the buggy sunniness.  We love our spinach and lettuce so much though that Will built a raised bed garden in the shade so that we can grow some more!

ta da!  I will have to write a post about how he built it.

We have picked just shy of 10 pounds of green beans total.  Today we picked 9 baggies (aka 9 side dishes for dinner for us)!  Green beans are hard work, but so worth it!  And since evidently we don’t have enough green beans to go around we filled the newly vacated lettuce/spinach row with more green beans… lol.

the empty row, which is going to be more green beans!
