It’s a Jungle Out There {Garden Update}

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

So, my camera has broken (or it’s fixability is not within my range of handiness), so we are stuck with the iPhone picture.

I pinned up my cucumber and squash this last weekend, as they were roaming all over the garden! I have a few blossoms popping up, as well.

I put 4 organic strawberry plants in the ground today. Better late, than never, right?

My potatoes, lettuce, and spinach are doing well, but I may be hitting up the Farmer’s Market for tomatoes, as those plants are kind of sad right now.

In other fruit-and-vegetable news, I purchased 25 lbs. of organic apples and 25 lbs. of organic carrots from Azure Standard. My order came in yesterday, so I am awash in both. We are also going blackberry picking on Saturday {squee!}.

As you can probably imagine, I have been Googling Apple Jam, Blackberry Jam, and Apple Butter recipes. I have found a few, but feel free to share any recipes you love in the comments!

How is your garden coming along?

    Don’t have a recipe, but thinking that blackberry/apple jam sounds pretty good. Or how about apple pie jam, I have even seen one with raisins in it. Or you could just do some regular pie filling and can it for later baking… The possibilties are endless when you google 🙂

    I’d make some applesauce. Its super-easy. Your garden looks great! My squash has started taking off across the yard too, so I got Hubby to build me a trellis.

    My green thumb is black – I can’t grow anything – my garden is the grocery store and farmers market!!
