Mom's Garden

I went to visit my parents this past weekend. One of the best parts of visiting them in the summer, is my mom's garden. It's so big; and I always get to bring so many fresh goodies back with me. So here's an overview of her garden:

A lot of plants are still in their 'baby' stages. But there was plenty of fresh lettuce, green onions, herbs and sugar snap peas. Oh, and I can forget about the darling potatoes that are just starting to be ready - so they're really small and super cute - the perfect size for roasting :)

My mom also has sunflower, various flower, tons of different peas, green beans (and yellow ones too I think), strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries - and some other berry I forget the name of, sweet corn, summer squash, eggplant, cucumbers, green peppers, garlic, and probably more. She is a busy lady! I can't wait for everything else to be ready!

1. Sweet Basil, 2. Potato Flowers, 3. Peas, 4. A line of Green Peppers, 5. Green Beans, 6. Sunflower plants
