Still not much going on in the garden but things are growing. Here's a look at the peas and turnips.
Spinach is looking great. My mouth waters when I think of sauteing this with garlic!
Kale finally came up, but only about three plants.
Broccoli struggling but not giving up yet.
Still need to thin out these carrots.
Some Four Season lettuce in the foreground, some red lettuce in the front middle ground, a second turnip patch in the back, middle ground, and Olive in the background. More about Olive at the end of the garden blog.
She blends in with the dead grass and leaves.
Beets coming along.
Tom set up four more compost bins and filled them with leaves. He waits for our neighbors to bag up the leaves from their yard then snags the bags for our use.
Eight compost bins in all.
A now for a bonus feature on TY VeggiePatch about Olive. No, not the kind you eat; the dog.
For those of you who might not know, we got a dog from the pound two weekends ago. We named her Olive and she's just what we were looking for.
I had lots to do in the kitchen and Tom, Olive and Maizie thought they'd come in and "help" me.
Here Tom is showing Olive how to do her business outside.
We got a stake to put in the ground so Olive can be outside in the garden with us and we don't have to tie her up to the garden hose anymore.
This next series of photos is Olive's first play date with Bobo from next door. For those of you who know dogs, as you might imagine, Bobo has little dog syndrome and was quite aggressive to. Olive was submissive and a very good girl. Bobo has a mate that Olive hasn't met yet. This coming weekend we'll see how the three of them do together. You can even see Milton (Bobo's owner) scolding him in a few photos.
And to round out the weekend, I did some sewing (see tired dog?)
and Tom did some drawing (see same tired dog).
