Pictures from the Garden

Happy 4th of July, it is overcast and raining here in Louisville. I was hoping to fly an American flag themed kite to celebrate but not a lot of wind with this rainy weather. :(

Pictures of some vegetables growing in my mother's Indiana garden have been posted for today. The first picture is of a dill plant used when canning cucumbers.  The second is of green tomatoes which can be eaten green or when red ripe. The last picture is of bean plants which might be green beans.

First Peach of 2013

 I picked my first peach not because I thought it was fully ripe but the peach was damaged. Half of the peach was good but the other side was starting to rot and had been eaten on by a bird.

The half that I salvaged was tasty... it was soft and sweet.  I hope it is a harbinger of a good peach crop for 2013!
