Gabby! Gabby! How Does our Garden Grow?

Here is a picture of our garden taken a little over a month ago:


I was so pleased with how everything was growing. You can just feel things alive and growing.

Here is it now!


The corn has really taken off. I can’t wait to get some ears from it!

The girls are showing how high it’s gotten:


Here are some other fun pictures from the garden:

I was pleased with this first little marigold last month:


Now they all look like this: lush, bushy and so pretty!


Our cucumbers a month ago:


and now:


The right side of the garden where the potatoes, melons and zucchini are growing:

Lots of straw:


Now, lots of green:


We have tomatoes:


Young watermelon:


And little pumpkins:


And lots of zucchini and cucumbers:


I think I need to find a pickle recipe and learn to make pickles. I want to make crunchy ones. Possible? The huge zucchinis are for yummy zucchini bread. I can make a LOT with these. Better make room in the freezer. The little ones are for eating right away. Sautee with some butter and melt some cheese over top. Yum!

One last fun picture, Katherine standing between the corn and tomatoes:


I better get my tomato canning recipes together too. They’ll be ripening in no time!

So happy this garden is going well. I hope nothing bad happens to it. I am looking forward to lots of tomatoes, beans, corn, potatoes and watermelon. Alan’s hoping for the peppers. I haven’t seen a honey dew yet but I am hopeful for them too. The plant is thriving.

So much more success this year than any other year! So exciting!

I need a pair of overalls. Feeling a little like farmer Jane.Winking smile
