Our garden update

We got the garden planted much earlier this summer than last year!  We did the potatoes first, it seems like a long time ago now, and they are huge!!  There are 17 potato plants:

The Beets:



There are a few more that haven't started coming up yet.  Maybe by next week we will see the red bell peppers and some carrots.

I'm most excited about the 3 trees of apples!  Our first summer in this house, the buds all froze in April and we were so sad.  But this year, they survived the spring frosts and so we shall have applesauce, apple slices, dried apples, apple pie jam, apple pie filling, apple fruit leather, and more!  YAY for apples!!!!
