These Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes are SWEET! These beauties are ripe when orange and they are delicious!
Cut flower time! We have Gladiolus, Snapdragons, Sunflowers, Zinnia, Calendula, Dalia, and Black Eyed Susan flowers growing in our yard. Fresh flowers always brighten your day!
Peppers are in! We're growing banana peppers, green/red bell peppers, and jalapenos.
Our eggs are selling out so quickly that we're looking to increase our number of hens. Our ladies may have some new friends soon!

My personal favorite of our garden by far is the zucchini! We like to pick it when it's still pretty small, and the flavor is just amazing, especially on the grill!
We've got cucumbers planted on three different trellises in the yard, and they really booming into production now. We have two different varieties - Dasher II, which is a delicious slicing cucumber & National Pickling Cucumbers, which are smaller and better suited for making pickles.
We're looking forward to even more production from our garden.
