As you may know, I (Phoebe) am currently out of town, and unavailable to tend to our Back to Eden garden. But, thanks to my wonderful family back at home, I’ve been able to “garden” virtually. 🙂 Through pictures, and a couple live Skype video chats, I’ve been able to experience our garden in a whole new way! Unfortunately, it’s not quite the same – you can’t pick up the water hose, and give the garden a good spray down, or dig your hands down deep into the earth. But, even still, I’ve seen the garden grow, from afar!
It’s pretty awesome. The tomatoes are growing big and strong, and blossoms and tiny tomatoes are already showing. The onions are big, and it’s almost time to harvest them. One has already been harvested, and it was about the size of a baseball! (I’m so excited!!) The radishes are growing well, too – we need to get some more seeds planted, so that we’ll have some later in the summer. Unfortunately, the peppers aren’t doing too well (as reported from my family!), and some of the herbs aren’t doing well either.
But, overall, it looks like the garden is doing great! I’ll get to see it in person tomorrow – maybe, just maybe, I’ll have enough time to make a short video.
In the meantime, you’ll have to be satisfied with these photos. 🙂
My dear Mom and Dad. Not quite sure what they were doing with this garden-fresh onion, but it’s a cute picture, nonetheless! 🙂 Mom was a gardener long before I was, and really instilled in us the importance of gardening. She also made it fun!
These babies are gettin’ big!

Some unripe raspberries.
Tomato cages are a must-have when growing tomatoes!
Our little raspberry patch. It’s so cute, isn’t it?! 🙂
I believe this is a yellow pear tomato plant.
