is it time to make a change?

Just wondering if anyone reads my blog or if it's just google bots or what have you.  If not, I think I'm just going to trade this time in for more time scrapbooking instead of blogging.

My garden facing West.  You can see a part of the back of my house in this photo.  You can kind of tell the garden is on the upper level.  I need to transplant more tomatoes.


My kohlrabi is starting to get bigger.  Soon we'll be having stir fry or eating it with a soybean free ranch dressing.

I know this doesn't look like much, but it's over 60 garlic plants.  I can't wait to see how well they do. I've never grown garlic before.  I'm feeling a little anxious. But they all sprouted so we are off to a good start.  You have to plant garlic in the fall.  Anderson's Seed and Garden has a great selection of different types of garlic.  Some of this is from the grocery store although I heard now they are treating them so they will not sprout.

Green bunching onions with the walls of water in the background.

Romaine Lettuce - you can see such a huge difference from the wimpy leaves that grew indoors and the gorgeous green leaves from outside.  Also, you can see my drip system.  Love it!  Although I learned the hard way to not put my timer on until the 2nd or 3rd week in June.  It cracked one night.  I have a new one - inside until I can trust it to stay warm enough.

wall of water - it's still so cold here - perfect for capturing the warmth of the sun

peas with spinach on the right of each row - need to go buy a trellis for these

I enjoy reading your blog. In fact, it is really good to see the valley in your pictures right now. I love your pictures. You are so incredibly talented! I would be sad to see you stop blogging. It is a good way for me to keep in touch with you and see your kids grow!
