Florida’s Big Garden

May 20, 2009

Sterling planted a bean in Chef Justin‘s window a few weeks ago, and we have enjoyed watching it grow every day.  It’s pretty cool that a big plant started out as a tiny bean.  It got me thinking about how different fruits and veggies look when they are growing.

Even though I’m from a small country town (Madison Co. shout out), I am basically clueless when it comes to growing anything.   I thought it’d be cool to get some pictures of different crops growing in a garden or on a farm and share with you all. Click on the pictures to go to the original and see a larger version.

Warning: lots of pictures, may take a second to load

    Fruit and vegetable blossoms are some of the prettiest flowers. My favorite is citrus blossoms. if you have ever been through Polk County in March, you will understand. The scent of orange blossoms smells like my childhood. I never knew I missed it until I moved to Mobile, AL where the neighbors had an acre of satsumas (tangerines). Each spring I would drag the kids out to the trees and make them smell the blossoms, which they thought was the dumbest thing. Now thier childhood smells like mine.
