We've been getting lots of nice weather interspersed with some rain and everything is looking just great! We did have a big storm blow through last night and I ran around in the pouring rain throwing sheets over everything just in case it decided to hail. Luckily it didn't!
I had to take some pictures to share. The flowers are all blooming, the baskets are overflowing and some things, like my pumpkins have suddenly gotten HUGE! I ate my first radish out of the garden this weekend too!
I think I'm actually going to get a pumpkin or two for halloween this year!
And there should be LOTS of squash & zucchini!
The tomatoes are getting really tall and climbing up their spirals. They all have flowers on them but the "Black Krim" tomatoes are by far the earliest to produce fruit. There are some HUGE tomatoes on the vine, should be another week or so until they are ripe! Yum!!
The lettuce is veeeeery slowly growing, as are the carrots. I need to give them some fertilizer and hopefully that will help them get bigger faster.
The onions and garlic are growing, some faster than others. This is my first time growing both, so I really have no clue what I'm doing! lol
The herbs are all doing well...except my basil, it's just not happy at all.
My watermelon kind of stinks. I can't figure out what to do to make it happy. It doesn't like the hot sun/heat and wilts, so it's been sitting on the front porch and only gets morning sun. It hasn't done much of anything. I don't have high hopes for getting any melons.
And here are the flowers. I have some ideas for next year and I think it's going to involve digging up most of the tulips and replanting them in clumps vs one here and there. It looks a bit messy in my opinion. I guess that's what happens when you impulse plant! lol
