Oh How His Garden Grows!

Every year my boss says he is not going to plant his garden as big as he does. Every year he plants it bigger.

The thing is..there is no one to eat it all...even 1/4 of it. His kids come out every now and then to collect some veggies..but not enough to warrant a garden this size. I don't know why he bothers doing it so big..it is lot of work for him and ..let's say...he ain't getting any younger. Is it a male thing?
The cherry trees were unbelievable this year..sweet and sour both. Strawberries..not so good.

Fig Tree...Peach Tree...Grape Vines...forgot to take a picture of the Yellow Plum Tree.
In the garden (oh- there is another one around back) he has garlic..leeks..potatoes..tomatoes..zucchini  
..squash..snow peas..other peas..onions..3 types of lettuce..hot peppers..green and red peppers. Basil..rosemary..thyme..some kind of red bean..and who knows what else!!
So can you go and pick your lunch off a tree when you are at work..Perks!!!

Happy Picking!

That is one BIG garden! I thought mine was big. We have potatoes, beans, tomatoes, turnip, lettuce, radishes, 2 types of onion, peas, carrots, cucumber, squash pumpkins and we just planted a cherry tree. Hope to have more than 1 cherry next year.
