This year was not so wonderful for my veggie garden and orchard…really weird results, not as fruitful as last year…too bad.  And of course my front lawn is non existent..between the gophers and the dogs going after the gophers and the water shortage…it's a pretty dusty and brown…so sad.

However, even in the lesser than usual bounty of my garden and orchard, there is still some small harvest.  There is nothing like growing your own food…it's something that brings me tremendous joy!  I'm very alive whilst in my garden.  And for the first year I was able to pick apples off my Rhode Island Green heirloom tree…even the Fuji is bearing fruit…yay!

So not so bad I think….actually it turned out to be a good day in the garden for me!

Chicken & Duck Eggs, Anaheim & Jalapeno Pepper,
Tomatoes (black cherry, black krim, and Juliet,
Tomatillo, Lemon Cukes and
a Potato I forgot I planted!

Rhode Island Green Heirloom….made applesauce

My First Fuji!

Peach jam (okay, not from my orchard
this year..but bought at the local farmers
market..still makes amazing jam!

Tomatillo, Jalapeño, plum jam…
a favorite around here and my
own recipe!

The back corner of the orchard and
the back gate into the duck/chicken
pen.  Champagne grapes growing
along upper trellis with morning glory
taking over…and a side peek on the left
of my massive fig tree.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and the bounty it may bring!…xox juner
