Busy days on the Round Rock Funny Farm. Tonight, we’ll be the vegetables… on the couch… with a movie.

A few more of the daily pics. We’re making sure everything is going to be ok while we’re gone for a short trip in June. Luckily, we have a friend that is willing to take care of our chickens.
Decided to post a few bonus pictures today. I’m sure the regular pics are getting just a little boring. 😉

You’ll notice a new look for the Funny Farm blog. It needed a freshening up. The sunflower picture at the top was taken yesterday in our garden. These sunflowers are tall, hopefully they’ll get over 9ft.

Well the tomatoes are doing well enough already that they need extra support. We’ve installed garden fence spikes in the rows. Using the florida weave method, all the tomatoes have a good bit of support. Our jalepeno and bell pepper plants have lots of little peppers growing all over them. We may need to add some form of support for those plants as well. Maybe it will get the same weave as the tomatoes. We learned about that idea from the nice people over at Johnson’s Backyard Garden. Their farm is successful and beautiful. We didn’t think they’d mind if we borrowed an idea for our backyard.

We planted some red velvet okras a few weeks ago and they’ve already popped up some little baby okras. The artichoke dwarfs all the other plants in the garden. It’s growing amazingly fast!

There’s another blackberry hunting mission going on today. It’s such a beautiful day in Texas.
