Today is cloudy and we are getting rain showers. We are inside catching up on laundry and housework and hopefully the rain is making the garden grow. 🙂 I did go out this morning and snapped a few pictures. Here is how our garden is doing.
I am happy with how our tomatoes are growing. They are strong and green and starting to bloom.
Our corn is also looking pretty healthy and strong. There are sunflowers growing throughout the corn.
The zucchini plants are looking good, but I already have squash bugs. I coated them with flour, garlic powder, and dried hot pepper flakes. I will also try a spray bottle with Dawn dish liquid and water.
There are a couple rows of watermelon or maybe it is cantaloupe. 🙂
A couple rows of newly sprouted okra.
Okra and a couple potato plants
I am not so sure the garlic is doing so great.
But the onions look like they are getting nice and thick.
These squash plants are supposed to resistant to squash bugs, but I floured them anyway. There are also some cucumbers growing in this part of the garden.
The potatoes weren’t doing so great so we planted some green beans with them. They have decided they want to grow now.
Potatoes & Green Beans
Green Beans and Carrots
And more green beans I think
Cucumbers, potatoes, and corn. My guys are creative I guess. 🙂
One good cabbage and one badly eaten cabbage
I am really hoping we get a lot to can and freeze. Blessings from One and a Half Acre Homestead!
