Talking Hurray...I can grow veggies :)

My dogs and my gardens, two of my favourite things (icecream, good coffee...and a nice Merlot...aren't so bad either
Anyway, I harvested the first of what will be MANY cucumbers from what I saw last night. Only 4 plants...and probably 12 or more ready to eat cucs! My tomato plants are so heavy, that I'll be eating salsa all winter
And my flower gardens which were non-existent last year {picture 2 metre tall burr bushes, hay, and weeds I've never seen where the flowers are now growing} to beautiful blooms this year...pictures to follow
And, my 5 year plan - at least for the gardens - a woven willow screen, (starting this week) a gazebo created from an obselete satellite dish (REALLY, check out Canadian Homes & Cottages!), a small rock garden (with rocks...not flowers) and a very large pond. All possible because we moved from the small city we lived in...to 160 acres of rural bliss!
As for the 'farm' 5 year plan, - some Icelandic sheep, a draft horse or two, and probably a few chickens, and some Muscovy ducks (apparently, they LOVE mosquitoes)
Now...if only I could find a way to retire without losing my income

I have the most pathetic cherry tomatoe plant I have ever seen. I think that I'm not meant to do veggies.

The neighbours have an incredible vegetable garden so it's not the area, it's the gardener.

LOL Congratulations! I envy your vegetable growing skills!
I like the five year plan idea. I think I have one as well.. Since I can't grow vegetables but I still LOVE the idea of actually producing some type of food stuff in my garden... I plan to replace some of the useless ornamental shrubs and such out there and fill in some of the big gaps in the perennial garden with fruit trees! Yes! I love fruit trees! Hmm.. They probably wouldn't let me ship fruit baskets to my Canadian friends would they?

You must post pictures of your cucumbers, Jazz! LOL I'm not kidding!!
