I got the garden watered first thing this morning. It’s looking like we will get rain over the next few days. Our plants really need it, and it will lighten my work load so I am pretty excited. It’s the little things, right?
After watering, I picked peas. It doesn’t look like much, but I was able to freeze 3 bags with 3 cups of peas in each. That’s 9 cups total. The best my peas have ever done! These will be used in stir-fry. I hope to get a few more weeks of picking.
Our broccoli is looking good and strong. These are the plants I started from seed. There are about 26 all together.
The pepper plants are still small. It always takes them a while.
Tomato plants look great! Who’s looking forward to a garden ripened tomato?
We have 5 rows of cucumbers.
Two rows of radishes.
Corn is popping up.
The kale is getting bushy.
The cabbage is starting to form heads.
Squash and Zucchini
Watermelons are growing throughout the garden.
A few rows of potatoes.
And Green Beans
There are various herbs growing around the house. This is lemon balm.
I weeded the beets(forgot to get a picture), peas, and corn after lunch and made 5 tomato cages. I was secretly hoping the rain would come before then so I wouldn’t have to work the garden, but it held off. 🙂 Once I get the watermelon patch weeded, I will have made my way through the whole garden once, and it will be time to start all over again. It’s a never ending cycle!
