Garden Week 10

This photo is from last Sunday- the beginning of week 10. You can see the garden has gone wild & all the plants are just growing like mad on top of one another. ;)

I'm totally fascinated by all the tendrils that are sprouting out everywhere and wrapping around everything and all the other plants.

It was another busy week in the garden! The basil & cilantro, which were potted, were not doing well! Looks like something has already been feasting up on this poor basil plant. I decided to bring the planter box back inside, out of the heat and hope that the spices did better and the bugs were gone.

We had quite a few more plant deaths in the garden. We lost a few more squash plants and are down to our final pair of squash plants that are growing slowly.

I did start to notice something that looked like some fruit beginning to grow at the first part of the week on the cucumber plants.

Withing just a few days we had a rapidly growing cucumber!

By the end of the week, we had a full on garden going! Almost all of the tomato plants had finally started growing. The jalapenos are the only thing that has yet to grow, but at least it hasn't died yet!

And we've got a full on cucumber! Two large ones actually.

The basil plant was still suffering, and the cilantro finally died. I did stick a few more cilantro seeds into the dirt, so hopefully they will grow again.
GOOD NEWS OF THE WEEK: We were home this weekend and finally had time to do some trellises for the garden and installed some shade.

If the squash pull through, my wife has a great recipe for cheese-stuffed, breaded, fried squash flowers. Yummy!

Yay-you have cucumbers! And DH loves your planter boxes, that is going to be his next project! :-)
