Garden pics...

Just a few pictures from what is growing in our garden today. We also have romaine lettuce, onions, tomatoes starting to grow big, celery, kale, artichokes, lavender, basil, chives, parsley, collards (planted from seed last spring, it is still going strong!), rosemary, and a few other things. Sounds like a lot now that it's all written down but doesn't seem like it when we're outside.

We have 30 fruit and nut trees in our orchard now, they are all blooming nicely and we can't wait until they are fruit ready to pick! Most are still young trees but we've had a lot of lemons, oranges, tangerines and limes. The loquats are starting to turn yellow (mostly green now) and the kids can't wait! Those are next to be picked and consumed in our house.

Beets that I harvested today...yummmm I'm going to pickle some, eat some and juice others!
Brussels sprouts, not as tight as I'd like but yummy anyway!
Purple broccoli (large & leafy that we can't wait to eat!) and the lima beans are coming back on the teepee. Not sure if they will make it, I don't think they are supposed to grow in the same area as the previous year. We'll see!
