summer gardening

I love summer and every year I look forward to filling our garden with plants of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants, blueberries and more! There is really nothing better than growing your own food. It's one of the coolest things to watch a little seed grow into a bush and then have blooms that grow into delicious fruits and vegetables. And there is nothing like fresh produce picked right from the vine. Nothing from the grocery store even comes close in taste.

So here are a few things I'm growing right now.....


More tomatoes (I think we have 6 different varieties this year)

Cucumber blooms with little baby cucumbers

Growing cucumber


Eggplant blooms

Have you ever grown eggplant?

This is the first year I have tried and I am in love with their blooms

So beautiful.

I am anxiously awaiting harvest day. Hopefully it's coming soon!


  1. The eggplant blossoms are lovely! I'm very interested, you'll have to keep me updated on how they produce. We've never grown them and I don't think M&D have either.

  2. Since I took these pictures last week the blossoms have turned into eggplants! They are so cute that I hate to leave them for a week while we go on vacation!


I would LOVE to hear from you! Comments, suggestions or just a simple hello are welcome! :)
