Holy Cow! My garden has exploded in the last week or so. All of my tomato plants have gotten bigger and most have flowers.
The light colored spots on the stalk are scars from the hail storm.
The squash, cucumber and melons all look big and healthy in spite of the remaining hail damage.
There is one lone zucchini and several squash blossoms showing great promise. I love saying squash blossoms. Squash Blossoms! :-)
Beets! These are beets! We love beets in this house. This is my first time trying root vegetables as well as starting with seed, so I am thrilled to see these guys.
There are other plants spouted in my seed row. I'm just trying to decide if they are weeds or something I actually planted and therefore wanted. There are supposed to be carrots, corn and butternut squash along with the beets.
I do solemnly swear to label my plants next year!
As I mentioned before, most of the fruit on our trees was lost during a hail storm, but the peach tree is full.
The apple tree actually has a few apples. Which is a huge surprise because we only had a few blossoms followed buy huge amounts of rain and really, really cold days.
Of course, the crop of weeds has exploded as well. So I've been spending a little time here and there pulling.
I'm travelling next week, so I hope my small weeding efforts are not in vain. As you can see, I have a ways to go.
