7 Quick Takes: Mary Mary Quite Contrary...

Yesterday I promised you all a riveting 7 Quick Takes post. Well, I probably lied just a teensy bet. It's not so much riveting as just pictures of some of the things we have growing around here. What? You don't find pictures of things growing at someone's  house  riveting?  Well, in any case, that's what I've got today so here we go...

1. My beautiful Lollipop Daisy. Pretty, no?

 





2. A pretty mix of flowers...petunias and what not.  You wanted something more technical than "what not"? I don't claim to be a botanist or a good photographer for that matter.





3. I planted a boatload of Gerber daisies around this year. Here is just one of the many...



4. Corn!  We are growing corn again this year!  We don't plant enough of it to make it worthwhile but it looks cool growing in the garden so we thought we'd try it again.




5. Carrots!  We've grown them in the past with mixed results but so far they are coming up gangbusters.  And if I remember correctly from years past, this is going to be a problem because we haven't thinned them out yet.  And by "we" I  mean "Farmer Dan". I handle the flowers, he handles the crops.


6. Beans!  One thing we can grow is green beans.  The only problem is that we don't particularly care for green beans so we give them all to my mom.


7.  Tomatoes!  We've got lots of tomato plants this year.  I do love me a good mater sammich!  Fresh tomatoes, salt, pepper mayonnaise and white bread.  It don't get much better than that.


8.  8?  Clearly I'm not a mathematician either... but look!  Blueberries!  We planted blueberry bushes last year and I think we might get a nice little crop this year.  Key word being little but you've got to start somewhere with blueberry bushes!



9. Rose bush!  Our rose bush is already going to town with pretty blooms. 




Head on over to Jenn's for more Quick Takes and have yourself a great Friday!

Beautiful! And that rose and the end is so lovely - thanks for posting! I really want to plant some veggies and what not but I'm terrible at taking care of them ( my hubby does much better with that!) and with a new baby around I'm just too lazy this summer lol... maybe next year ;-)

Love your garden!! And I'm totally jealous of your veggies -- we have so many deer and rabbits all over the place that we haven't been able to get a good enough fence to keep them from eating everything! We should just get a dog.
