ffgp133I think I’m going to name my gardens this year.  And with all the additional beds going in this year “garden” just doesn’t seem to cover it.  I haven’t decided for sure, but I think I’ll name it “Park Ave Farms.”

We actually live on Park Ave and the place is turning into a vegetable farm. 

Maybe I’ll have a nice sign made up and put it in one of the new vegetable beds that will be taking the place of the front lawn this year.

What do you think, is a farm name just to over the top?  Or is it carrying on a tradition, all the homestead and farms used to have names.

I haven’t been around for almost two weeks.  My mom and dad came to visit and we had a lot going on.  That does not mean that nothing was happening in the garden.  I got to pick my vegetable garden with my mom, something I haven’t done in a very long time.  Both my parents love vegetables and any opportunity to eat them fresh they jump at.  We enjoyed peppers, zucchini, tomatos and the last of the green beans.  My mom spent about 30 minutes going through the bean bush and got them all picked.

We also visited a farmers market about 5 minutes from here.  It was a great chance to stock up on vegetables I don’t grow.  We happen to live in vegetable farming country and this particular market is at an actual farm where the produce is grown.  I got some very nice onions and something called Italian frying peppers.  Both went really good with hot polish sausage.
