Allen Family, Allen Family, Where Have Y'all Been? -- posted by Mom

Well, we haven't been to London to see the queen, BECAUSE THAT DOESN'T RHYME NO MATTER WHAT BILLY SAYS!

We've "bean" planting our garden-- that's where.

We've planted:
Silver Queen and Merit corn
Henderson Bush butterbeans
jalapeno peppers
red, yellow, orange, and green bell peppers (we couldn't find purple anywhere)
green beans
yellow wax beans
purple wax beans
pink-eye purple hull peas
Better Boy tomatoes
straight neck squash
zucchini
cantaloupe
watermelon
chives
cucumbers
Super Fantastic tomatoes
marigolds
Stevia
nasturtium
orange mint
chocolate mint
rosemary
strawberries
four o'clocks
lavender


John and George have been cutting down trees that have grown up around the back garden area so Sarah and I can plant interesting and heirloom tomatoes in the raised bed they made for us. The ones I can remember:

Mr. Stripey


















Yellow Pear













Cherokee Purple



















Homestead

















Lemon Boy

















Chocolate Cherry




















I know I'm forgetting something. We're bushed. We'll write about it as soon as we get everything in the ground!
