ReggieGirl How Does You Garden Grow?

******Please, please, please click on the Daily Puppy****

My organic garden is looking pretty good these days. I can't wait until this weekend so that I can plant my tomatoes, pepper, squash, peas, beans and corn. I always wait until after Good Friday to plant those things.

Right now, I do have a few winter veggies growing out there......

Rows of lettuce, broccoli and red onions..............

Early dividend broccoli.....................

Romaine Lettuce...................

Fresh Asparagus is coming up everywhere.........

Cutting fresh asparagus for lunch. Sauteed in a little butter with fresh garlic and slivered almonds.....delicious!!!.............

  1. gardens everywhere- I often wondered how asparagus grows !!!

  2. Gosh those asparagus spears look delicious - one of my very favourite things - I like to chargrill mine till they're just crisp still, then serve them with some shaved Parmesan and a splash of good quality Balsamic vinegar.... sigh! and the rest of your vegetables also look excellent - you've a green thumb Reggie Girl! Warmest wishes to you (oh yes, I clicked on the puppy!!) Vxx

  3. Oh yummy I love fresh home grown veggies! Looks wonderful!

  4. Your post today reminded me of a quote I had on my blog: "Gardening, yoga, bubble baths, medication...and I still want to smack somebody!"

  5. Nothing foolish about fresh asparagus with butter and almonds! I'm so jealous, our yard is covered in snow and the only gardening I do is indoors.

  6. You make me so hungry showing your garden! Nalley tells of a field of asparagus that grew next to his grandma's property in MI when he was little. Also, your puppy of the day...my blog friend KathyB @ Spot on Cedar Pond has Vizslas. They are very pretty! Enjoy the week.

  7. Looks yummy! I am very good at taking care of my fake plants....real ones, not so much.

  8. My garden does not grow! I had rather play when I am not shooting than work in the yard. But when am I not shooting?

    Maybe I could shoot a garden growing (time-lapse).

    I love asparagus!

    We have this huge farm up the road and they grow everything. Their produce is just wonderful, and the owners gives me the best deals.

    One day I was shooting their tomatoes for the newspaper, and there were hundreds of tomatoes on the ground. I asked her is someone was coming along to pick them up, and she said it was too costly; they let them rot.

    When my eyes got big she told me to take whatever I wanted, so I went home with a truck full of tomatoes. I was like a kid at an Easter egg hunt.

    She did the same with corn that was going to be plowed under.

    Now, I am hungry.

  9. Can I come over for lunch? I'll be on my best behavior, honest!

  10. Looks like you have a green thumb...good job.

  11. Yum!! I'm coming to your house, it's been too cold to plant, but I think we'll get some stuff in the ground today. ;P

  12. Hi Reggie,

    These pics are making me hungry for some lunch!


  13. Oh, I can't wait to come over for a lovely salad,fresh from the garden! Mmmm...asparagus! My favorite vegetable. I like mine with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

  14. Asparagus my favorite!
    I can't wait to plant my garden this year.
    I'm gonna try my hand at Romaine lettuce.

  15. Nothing is better than fresh veggies from your own garden! Good for you Reggie Girl!

  16. Lucky you!! We have to wait another month or so before we can even start planting...welcome to Canada.

  17. Awww, I wish I could grow a garden! I loved it when I could, and taught my kids as part of their homeschooling when they were smaller...

  18. this post really makes me miss living in the country where we always had a garden...the veggie i miss the most tomatoes-there is nothing like a garden tomatoe and mayo sandwhich

  19. It was snowing here Sunday morning. Sigh.

  20. Oh, I am so jealous! My garden is drowning due to all the rain the last week. It has standing water in it and it's raining right now. All I can do is pray over it. Then I'll cry it it's all gone. But it is early enough to replant most things. I'm trying to look on the brighter side of things.

    How do I sign up for the Friday shoot outs??

  21. My husband and I want to grow a garden this summmer but it may not be this year. But next year the latest. I want to put up a fence first before anything.

  22. Reggie, Reggie, quite the veggie
    You do make your garden grow
    No silver bells or cockle shells
    But lettuces all in a row!

    Lovely to see all your plants Reggie and Good Friday must be the best day to do the rest of your planting.

  23. Your garden looks great! I can't wait to plant mine outside. I love asparagus but I'm afraid it might not grow well here. I'll have to try it sometime.

  24. My mom had an asparagus patch long ago - I loved how they came up looking like alien creatures.

  25. So glad I found your blog. Love your photos of fresh asparagus -- I've got some right now ready to roast for supper. Looking forward to being a regular visitor here.

  26. Oh, red onions. You got me there. I am a red onion fan, especially in salads. And you're growing your own! I feel jealous. Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  27. I had no idea how asparagus grow. You learn something new every day.

  28. Oh you are so good. I'm way too lazy to have a garden. I'll stick to my little flower garden.

  29. Boy, what I would do for a teeny plot of measly dirt. I have nothing since I'm here in San Francisco.

    Love the daily puppy feature...

  30. I like today's Daily Puppy! Actually, I love every day's daily puppy. Today's dog looks like a very happy dog.

    Glad to see your garden. Cool to know you guys just pick vegetables in your gardens! We have nothing here but cement and more cement LOL.

  31. Your garden is growing just fine! It looks grand! Ours is still covered with snow..:(

  32. Can you come here and help me get mine planted? I'm so far behind. Often people won't plant asparagus because it takes three years to get a good crop. But if you do plant it, three years goes by quite quickly. Such fun to get your hands dirty - I can never find my gloves.

  33. You're such a woman of substance. How can you ever cope up with all of that..?! Planting, catering, shooting for photo shoot outs, taking care of Prince, painting and looking after those lovely dogs.. Such a nice lad.

  34. Beautiful! I work in a garden center, so I truly do appreciate your gardening skills! Nicley done!


I'm listening.....and while you're at it PLEASE make me laugh!!
