Every evening when I go out to the garden to water, I am teased by the fruit and vegetables that are exploding at this time of year. But unfortunately everything is still in the growth stage and I have a few more weeks to go.
I can taste the homemade salsa or BLT sandwiches right now.
I planted cantaloupe for the first time last year and it was the sweetest and most delicious melon I have ever tasted. I can't wait for these lovely melons to ripen up a bit.
I pulled a few carrots, just to see how big they were...too soon.
This zucchini plant has skipped over a 2 foot pathway and entered into another boxed garden. The funny thing is that it was a volunteer from my compost pile. I have never grown zucchini, so it must be from the CSA. I compost all of our vegetable and fruit scraps and this plant appeared coming out of the compost barrel early in the season. I replanted it in a new bed that we built this year and it is taking over my entire garden.
The problem is that there are a ton of flowers, but not a single zucchini yet. I don't know if this is normal.
And to make matters worse, I found some flowers on the ground. I'm not sure if this is the work of critters that feast in my yard or if these flowers fell off naturally.
How is your garden growing? Are you practicing a lot of patience right now too?
