Garden Bonanza

Taking a bit of a break from blogging our Africa vacation to do a garden update. It had grown so much when we'd returned. The asparagus are still whisking in the breeze, only 2.85 more years to go! The middle strawberry plant has started to grow some tendrils out. I see strawberries grow, but I think birds or bugs must eat them before they grow very big.

Notice the rouge watermelon growing from last season?

Our tomato box is finally cranking up. I've only got 1 or 2 cherry tomato plants & 3 of the guys in the center row. The left row is doing great though & we even have some factual tomatoes growing...

As H loves tomatoes, he's very excited about these guys.

The squash and cucumber box is out of control! We've got 2 rows of squash and at least 5 good, producing plants. I've got 1 row of cucumbers and numerous vines that have tons of buds on them.

Check out this giant that grew! My step-dad picked a few while we were gone, but I think these grow really fast.

We had quite a bountiful first harvest- I think it makes this year's garden already better than last! I've still got tons of stuff growing & now I need some good cucumber & squash recipes.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: These guys are 1 week old today!

Your garden looks good right now...compared to ours.

It's so freaking hot here that not much is growing. It's too hot for our strawberries and the birds/squirrels get to them first. We're having problems keeping our tomatoes too, darn birds.
