Veggies and Fruits

I love my perennials, and I appreciate the individual beauty and hardiness of each and every one of them.

But, this time of year, I am in awe of the fresh vegetables and fruits we grow and get to enjoy on our table. My husband and I have five raised beds where we have several varieties of heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, beans, peas, squash, broccoli, celery and lots and lots of lettuce.

On the farm for all of us to enjoy there are also high bush blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, grapes and wild berries along the perimeter of the property. They may be wild, but those golden raspberries are delicious. The grandkids have already checked to see if they have fruit, and they are loaded. Picking to commence in a week or so.



We’ve had rain every day for quite a while. With the sun shining at least part of the day now, the humidity is stifling, but you can hear and see everything growing. It’s amazing.

Gardening really is the very best hobby for the outside enthusiast – veggies and fruits for the body and beautiful perennials for the gardener’s soul.

Hope you have a great week doing what you love. 🙂

    Oh I wish you lived close by so that I could visit your garden and nibble on your raspberries. I remember the days livings on the farm in Michigan and being able to hear the corn growing. That was the best corn!
