I have neglected my garden blog.  I haven't stopped gardening but I have negelected my garden blog.  The cold days appear to be well behind us now.  I ventured out to a few plant nurseries and picked up a few annuals for the gardens.  Annuals have become rather expensive.  I need to start sowing my own seeds instead of buying plants.  I am intrested in having a small greenhouse that I can put up in the early part of the year to start my seeds and then take down and store during the summer months when it is not needed.

My green beans are producing very well and I even managed to get some black-eyed peas for my evening meal.  The only thing not provided from the land was the chicken breast which came from a local shop.  It was a slow go to getting the garden producing.  I got flooded out just at the time I needed to get things planted.  My okra is still too small  to be producing but it is growing fast.  Some squash is starting to come in as well as a few cucumbers.

I do have a few things producing in the garden.  I have some eggplants that are nearing ready and I picked a few cucumbers.  I don't seem to have any cantaloupes; I got the seeds mixed up with cukes so it looks like I will have plenty of cucumbers this year.  I had a few butternut squash to volunteer in the garden and they are further along than the ones I planted.
