The veggies are growing

Saturday, 2 July 2016
James' father John is a wonderful gardener. He hasn't put one in over the last few years so we decided to plant one together this year. We have a major problem with deer so he put in a 9 foot fence and wire along the ground so critters can't get in. 
The peppers are coming in nicely and we tried one the other night. These (above) are hot peppers and the more they change color (to red) the hotter they will be. Pretty tasty.
Our first harvest of garlic was successful and we managed about 15 heads of garlic of two types. 
We have already tried a few of the bulbs and they have a nice, fresh flavor. The others are being dried and cured and I will watch a few YouTube videos about how to braid garlic!
The sunflowers are beautiful. They grow quickly and strong and have thick stems. I am looking forward to seeing them bloom.
