This morning I noticed the first two blooms on the squash plants, one on each.
After shopping today, I went outside to photograph them and decided to take more pictures and give you an update. Mojo was thrilled to have company in the backyard and wanted to play, so I threw the Frisbee for him a few times to settle him down.
Here is the full garden. The tilled grass in the garden makes the pictures hard to make out.
We have probably lost one of our cucumber plants, and the other is looking kind of sorry. We aren’t too disappointed, though, because we still have many quarts of pickles from two years ago! Our bush beans have already cast their flowers and appear to be setting fruit, though the plants themselves are not very big:
Most of our tomato plants are looking great, but still have a lot of growing to do. We still have not caged/staked them yet.
The broccoli (along with the squash) looks the best: dark green and growing fast!
The onions are weak, but growing. The carrots are too small to photograph. They are visible to the naked eye, but in a picture, the little plants get lost among the decaying grass. The corn, like the broccoli and squash, is excellent. I love seeing it get big enough to lay out another set of leaves. 🙂
That is the garden progress today. We won’t be harvesting for a while yet, but are anxious to have fresh vegetables. I’m especially hoping for a good tomato harvest!
