From Marilyn's Gardens

L-R Tomatoes, Spuds, Beets, Beans and Peas
Sugar snap peas on left, the regular peas on right are well over 4' tall closing in on 5. There are summer and winter squash planted in the 'tween'.
Her onions.


One picking of strawberries. They seemed to ripen right behind where she was picking,,,so she claims. Yes folks I picked my share of these. I didn't work them in the kitchen however, because I'm TOO SLOW.

Another great visit to the farm! Thanx. Have a good weekend, Cliff.

Peter said...

Maybe you should cut a few acres off the farm for Marilyn to grow her produce and just retire Cliff???? I'm just askin'

Hi Cliff! Marilyn sure does have a great garden. I believe I'm a bit jealous. Those strawberry look yummy. Lisa

Rachel said...

Oh yummy strawberries!! Looks like the garden is bigger than last year, or is my memory just bad? Bet those cherries are about ready!

Have a Happy Father's Day Cliff!

Oh Cliff, I hope Marilyn has some canning supplies.... It is time to "put up" some of that produce....Those strawberries look wonderful. Our garden this year has been a dud... I just don't know what went wrong but our tomatoes are all turning brown on the bottom...

Have a Happy Fathers Day.

I marvel at your weedless garden and soft black dirt. Lord have mercy on our poor, rocky, hard as nails, crap that we are growing veggies in. Don't get the hubs started on the weeds. Yes, I could weed. I just prefer not to be outside when it is 97 degrees and so humid that my hair literally falls flat from the door to the edge of the yard, lol.

Little Red Hen, who will help you eat those strawberries?

Those onions look really good. I am not sure about the one wearing the blue shirt. It might be a camoflauged Texas M&M Red Onion? I doubt if you'd want to be caught with any growing over there.

I hope the last game of the College World Series doesn't get rained out tonight. We pull for LSU. GEAUX TIGERS!

Those who didn't know, I married an LSU Tiger. But Mrs. Jim got to Texas as fast as she could, just like I did. :-)

Every time I look at these pictures I wish I would have planted a garden this year. Just got behind having to much fun.

My Dad used to say: "The only good thing that ever come outta Texas is Hwy 80."

So now I say: "The only good thing that ever come outta California is them strawberries." So far this season, we've probably eaten 25 pounds of 'em. If I'da known you had some, I'da come to visit. They look good!

Homegrown bounty!!!
Marilyn has a terrific garden, and I'm sure everyone enjoys the fresh produce.
Those strawberries look so good.

Careful of those beets.

Everything looks so good. My parents always had a garden at their place in Minnesota. My father used to plant one row of onions that he said were just for me. Wow, I really did feel special and loved.
