Things in the garden are going well. I'm definitely learning a lot for next year! Our tomatoes are LOADED! They are also really tall!? I have steaked them twice, but now they are too tall to even steak?! They are doubled over, but still producing. We had a really hard rain and I lost a few stalks, but other than that, they are doing great. Our cantaloupe is really struggling! I tried to make it climb to save room for my zucchini, but I guess it doesn't like that too much. I have a few that are growing on the ground that look good, so we'll see. My cucumbers are finally producing and taste so good! The strawberries have been taken over by the marigolds and not getting as much sun so they haven't given us many strawberries. However they have put of a ton of runners so I'm hopeful that those will begin to produce fruit b/f too long. The peppers are doing fine. They aren't just going crazy, but we have gotten a few. They are very sweet!
This is a picture of my squash and cucumber bed. Since the squash boars killed all of my squash I decided to plant our pumpkins in here. I planted them from seed on July 4th and they are growing like crazy. The kids are so excited to get pumpkins! It should be fun.
This is the "harvest" I brought in today. Not too shabby! ;) The kids are enjoying the garden so much. Even Jack gets into it! He spots a red tomato and points and gets so excited b/c he knows I'll let him pick it. We are just loving it. I really think everyone should give it a shot. I've been pleasantly surprised at how easy this has been. If I can do it, anyone can do it!!! :)
