Emerald and Gold Euonymus…it was in our landscaping when we moved in. Pretty, but susceptible to crown gall.

Snowball viburnum…almost at its peak.

Pie cherries forming!

Shadow on guard. He’s actually in deep doo doo after running away today. Naughty doggy.

Our lettuce is getting big…salad every night!

Some of our spinach has already started to bolt (not shown)…drat!

Currants getting pretty big. I wish I had enough to make jelly.

    Love those pictures! We have corn (taller than I am already), sunflowers (taller than the corn), lolla rosa lettuce (snail food – sigh), carrots, beets, tomatoes, green beans, squash (can’t keep up with the zucchini already), melons, peppers and garlic! Whew! Oh yeah – rosemary, basil and oregano. This is the first vegetable garden I’ve had in many, many years and the largest ever, and I am enjoying every minute of it! However, my husband has been complaining a bit of having squash almost every night with dinner! Hahaha! Hurry up corn! Vickie @ makingoursustainablelife.com

    Your currants look fantastic. I’ll put some of those in next year.
    This year we have our garlic all popping up its head – about 7 up so far and at least another 50 to go I think. We have onions, potato onions, leeks (which look seriously lame), broad beans (lots thereof) and a few purple sprouting broccoli I am hanging in there to see if they grow heads. I’m getting close to ripping the rotten headless things out though. In our greenhouse we have the last of the tomatoes, cauliflower, cabbage, spinach, bolting coriander (cilantro), a few radishes, a handful of beetroots, a pumpkin and a spaghetti squash. The last of the summer crops in our frost bound wintery landscape.

    Looks great! Our sweet corn and okra are up and we’re hilling the 2nd potato patch. Beets aren’t growing well, though. 🙁 Need to set out more tomatoes, the cabbage and broccoli.
