What's Growing Wednesday

So I know this post is ridiculously late but today has been way busier than anticipated. I had every intention of getting this up by my normal 9:00am posting time but alas, twas not to be. Our internet was down this morning so I couldn't write my post while eating breakfast and then by the time I went for my run (25 minutes straight baby!), I was running late and had to shower and leave for work. Because I have a new job, which I'm not sure if I've mentioned yet. I am now working 10 hours a month doing bookkeeping for the place where I used to work. It's a pretty sweet set up and I'm pretty delighted with it.

Back to this post. It's late because I went to work and I didn't finish as early as I thought I would and then I met up with Dan and we went and picked up new laying hens (more on that later). So all that to say, I didn't get back to the house until 7:30pm and then I was hungry. So tough luck to those of you who have been checking faithfully all day for a post. You had to wait. And now you'll probably be disappointed since I also didn't have time to take many pictures.

Picture one represents our tomato crop right now. This is basically what my counter looks like everyday. As soon as I deal with one batch, I have to go out and pick another thirty.

Tomatoes are basically the only thing I am picking from the garden recently, since everything else seems to be at a bit of a standstill. I'm waiting for my beans to start up again and for the peppers to ripen. I did pick a couple small things the other day though.

I thought it was a really happy colourful basket and I loved the natural light making everything look so pleasant.

We also dug up some of our potato plants on Monday and now the potatoes are drying in the basement before going into storage.

It's a pretty small amount of potatoes right now but we're hoping that the rest of the plants will do better than these ones did. The four plants we dug up were the ones at the back of the garden which doesn't do that well. I'm sure I'll keep you somewhat posted on the potato crop as time goes on.

So that's it for today folks. A short and sweet blog post that is over 12 hours late. See you all tomorrow!


  1. You have a lovely garden. And yay for a good run!

  2. Jackie - Thanks! I was definitely proud of my run and figured my health was more important than writing a blog post. Sorry for the long wait.

  3. such a colorful basket! beautiful produce!
