Thematic Photographic # 163 Daughter's bounty

Photo and growth by my daughter......


                     Is it cheating to share my daughter's bounty from her very first time ever garden all on her own?  Seriously, her hubby is in Iraq and sad as that is in my opinion, even though we MUST SUPPORT our troops, and I do.......(it's our mission that keeps me, oh never mind another time)....

But luckily he's away because as first time gardeners can occasionally makes (oops) mistakes, and last year their actual first planting of the garden was quickly eliminated as hubby decided that "Oh, yeah why not spray weed killer for the weeds?" Don't you love first time gardeners?!  Good idea, except it killed everything!  They were very sad farmers.

Anyway, my daughter and I discuss my TP's sometimes, but it's funny this week we didn't and she sends me an email with this lovely last pickings from her garden!  I love it and have to share it with YOU!  Even if she did take the photo...although it reminds me very much of how Carmi, ever so neatly puts his veggies in such perfect form!

Don't forget you too can post your very own veggies or what ever here

Well, that’s not a bad haul for a first (or second) try.

That's a good start for a crop.

Very nice. My yard is small and shady, so I always admire vegetable gardens!

That's quite a bounty, compared to what I got this year. She should be very proud. And I'll be keeping her hubby and his unit in my prayers...

Snowcatcher- thank you from the bottom of my heart, for your prayers for them over there, every prayer counts so much!

Lovely spuds - everything tastes twice as good when you grow it yourself!

That's fantastic your daughter is learning how to garden and the veggies look awesome! I learned through trial and error, heck I am still learning and most likely will always be learning how to garden. It's limitless as to how much one can learn about gardening I think.

wow...nice bounty!! amazing how much better everything tastes when it's FRESH!!!
(and as far as using weed killer in the veggie garden...even as a first time gardener...i'd think twice before spraying anything 'toxic' in there....ya know?? but we learn from our mistakes....)
