Papa's Garden

I took some pictures of Gary's garden today. It is doing very well. The pea's are really loaded. He should be picking them in a couple weeks. Thankfully he picks, shells and puts them up. I cook and help eat them. I think that is fair. They really are good. Last year we didn't get too many as we had so much rain that it drown them. Hopefully this year we will get the full crop.

The corn is coming along, maybe a little slow, but it is coming.

This is his peanut crop. If these do well there will be lots of boiled peanuts. Yummy

Here is the first little watermelon. This is what I wait for every year. I love watermelons. These are the little sugar babies. The kind you can sit down and eat the whole thing. They are so good and so sweet. Gary works hard in the garden and keeps it growing good. It takes a lot of work and I don't really think it is worth it, but he loves it. I do enjoy the results, but to me it is way to much hard work. Glad he likes to do it though. We have lots of tomato plants too and they are doing good.
