garden news-tomatoes beans and more

this week i made a big pot of vegetable soup trying to use as much as i could from my garden supplementing it with veggies from the store and our freezer

in reading posts specifically from the south you guys are in the throes of tomato harvest
our tomatoes are just now starting to turn
here are a few sungolds i harvested last week
these are sweet in fact ms b says these are her favorite tomatoes
she is planting one in her garden in the picture above

the green beans are french filet beans
we like to snack on them as does ms b

here are my t tomatoes named after my relative who grew them from a volunteer tomato in her yard
i harvested the seeds and started tomatoes from them
i call them t tomatoes
they grow in bunches and the vines are loaded with all of these green tomatoes
it will interesting to see what the end product will look like and taste like

in my garden i harvested to put in my soup
swiss chard
malabar spinach
zucchini squash
tatume squash
christmas lima beans
bell peppers
the other ingredients were corn potatoes sweet peas black beans and pinto beans
yep a hearty soup for sure

i have used the garden as my go to place to get some exercise and to do it safely
i spray the lock to the gate to be safe then wait a few minutes before i put in the code and open the gate
i put on my work gloves which have a plastic or vinyl palmar surface so i can spray then with disinfectant or what i commonly do is wash the well like i am washing my hands for 20 seconds
i wear a cloth mask
if more people show up in the garden i switch to my n95 mask
i social distance at least 10 ft
my garden is at the far corner of the garden so there is usually no traffic there except for me
if i am doing volunteer work elsewhere in the garden i usually am alone and away from other people
the property is about an acre in size
i usually use my own tools that i bring back and forth into the garden
i have my own water hose to use and no one else uses it
as i leave i wash my gloves and wash my hands and respray the lock before i lock it up

im being safe
in my happy place
