Is it just me or does it seem like nothing is growing like it should? My peppers and eggplants look way too small. The corn looks on the smallish size too. And really my beets and carrots just are not growing at all. I was thinking next spring I will make seed tapes for the beets, carrots and radishes so I won't have to worry about overcrowding!
The tomato and squash plants, on the other hand, have taken off like crazy!! I tied the tomato plants to stakes last week and they were about half the size of the stakes. This week they are almost as tall as the stakes! I love tomatoes and I cannot wait to pick the first big juicy red globe of goodness!
We also found a little surprise! I am not sure what it is but we have been filling in this spot in the yard with some leaves, dirt and various other types of fill all spring and the Hubs seems to think we threw our pumpkins off the deck into this spot last year. I dunno know but I guess we will find out sometime in the fall! It would be nice to not have to buy all those pumpkins this year!!
Our roadside lillies finally bloomed.....I love these bright orange flowers! I transplated this one this spring after it had sprouted leaves and it bloomed.
The girls loved taking pictures of the strawberries. We still have a few ripening in the beds.
Our lettuce is looking good.....
We had a lot of fun doing this, I think I was more excited than the girls were! Every week when we walk out there it amazes me how much things have grown and how much closer we are to having fresh, untouched, organic food! I cannot wait to have the first ear of corn or ripe tomato! I can practically taste it now!
Hope everyone else had a great week of gardening! I know we did! Have a safe and happy 4th!
