How does your garden grow?

Our spring garden is doing very well so far. I have taken extreme measures against the birds this year but despite all of that, I found two green tomatoes with what appeared to be a pecked hole in it. I have such a love/hate relationship with these winged creatures! That's why you will see rubber snakes draped over my prize crop of tomatoes!  
Here is our Patio Garden (if you click on the picture, it will open up larger)



here is our Pioneer Garden (if you click on the picture, it will open up larger)




Pioneer Garden - Green beans making good use of our homemade lattice






Behind the bunny you will see the beginnings of Purple Hull beans -
the purple beans magically turn green in hot water!


Our patio tomatoes and sugar cherry tomatoes are producing a nice crop!


The sugar cherry tomatoes produce fruit like a grape cluster and are just as sweet
 
Beautiful and fragrant basil


Cabbages are doing wonderfully. I had to pick some very fat and hungry worms off of them. No chemicals please.


the tomato cages do double duty as green bean poles


trying some carrots this year


Can't wait for these guys to get ripe! You can see my bird deterring rubber snake coiled amongst the fruit.


we will have a bumper crop of Louisiana satsumas this year. Here is a baby one.


first baby bellpepper


Patio tomatoes are producing! Snake to keep the birds away. You can also see a christmas ornament tucked in to fool the birds.

 
banana peppers producing



Already eating jalapenos


looking forward to a huge crop of squash this year


our first cucumber (still in pickle stage)
