sorry, I was talking about the artichokes that were a week or so away from picking and a bunch of thumb sized.
the tomatoes are kicking ass.

ok, an up date. we are having our first artichokes tonight for supper. pole and bush beans coming in like gang busters. this truly is the best growing season I've had since moving here. We didn't get a late June frost, and hopefully, we won't get an early one in mid Sept. like we did in the previous years.
Oh, and Bird. Try mixing in your bush beans between your Tomato plants next time. The beans flood the ground with nitrogen, which the Toms love.

My garden is in full swing. We love making salsa and pickles...so here is my crop:
Green Onion Stalks
I had a pesky gopher already make his way into my raised bed yanking down one plant. Seriously hate those things. Any ideas on how to get rid of them? I'm so frustrated to the point where I'm going to hook my exhaust pipe up to my car and drop it down the hole.

I'm wrapping up my winter crop of brussel sprouts, lettuce, and spinach. For the summer I already have way too many tomatoes growing. I started from seed and wasn't expecting many to make it because I started early, but a bunch are coming up. Other than that I got cilantro, carrots, grapes, blueberries, cantaloupe, jalapenos, habaneros, yellow bells, serranos, red onions, fingerling potatoes, strawberries, rosemary, thyme, and oregano.

Golden beets, purple carrots, serranos, jalapenos, pepperonccini, goat horn peppers, shi****o peppers. padron peppers, cherry tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, Cherokee purple tomatoes, Japanese eggplant, lemon cucumbers, Italian parsley, thyme, oregano, sweet marjoram, rosemary, peppermint, lemon verbena, blueberries, strawberries, and a volunteer squash of some sort. The Meyer lemons have a ton of fruit this year, the apple blossoms didn't get hit by rain or frost so we should have a ton of apples, and the olive trees are going to be loaded this year. It's going to be a busy summer of cooking, grilling, and canning. Likely going to make a ****-ton of limoncello too.

No, but my neighbors cat likes to use my garden as a litter box sometimes.
