Produce Garden Pictures 2010
Our large Produce Garden yielded a very nice crop in 2010. Our plants were started in the green house from seeds early. The whole area of Northeastern Oklahoma experienced a long and wet spring as well. It was in early May that the garden started to come into it’s own and start producing fruit.
Below we present a short slideshow and description for you to view and enjoy.

1)Finally, the last row of the tomatoes and peppers are in. We planted more than 200 tomato plants.
2)Green Tomatoes – in May!
3)Photo from the west end of the south garden. From the foreground: Indian Corn, watermelons and cantaloupes, and then the 15 rows of tomatoes and peppers.
4)Our first garlic crop – harvested June 9 – these are the softneck variety Red Toch. The coin is an Oklahoma quarter.
5)Some of the heirloom Purple Viking potatoes from our garden – scrubbed and ready to be baked in the microwave. These potatoes have a great potato flavor and are very creamy. Did you know that purple-skinned potatoes are lower on the glycemic index than other potatoes?
6)This is a Jackpot Hybrid Yellow Bell Pepper – it’s as tall as a quart jar. When washed and chopped, this pepper yielded 3 cups.
