June Garden Update

Well, it has been too long since I have done a garden update.  We are having a very hot and dry start to the summer but we have spent a lot of time watering and working in the garden to keep it producing.  And all the time has paid off.  Take a look at what is going on in the Parsons’ Prairie Farm Garden.

We have lots of tomatoes to look forward to.  I can hardly wait for that first BLT of the summer!

We have hot peppers coming along nicely for our soups and salsa.

And my favorite…..sweet peppers.

We are starting to see some green beans…..

……and cucumbers.

Our sweet corn is coming along as well.  Ahhhh, I can already taste that first wonderful bite!

Our strawberries are really beginning to spread now.  We will have a nice strawberry patch next year.

And last, but certainly not least, the blackerries.  We are picking them as they turn and they are delicious.  I have made several cobblers already, some blackberry jam and am now freezing berries so we can have those wonderful cobblers this winter.
