OK, OK. The garden has been growing and I've been excited about it.
Daughter's Husky Cherry Red (she's got about a dozen baby tomatoes on her plant)
Son's Husky Cherry Red? ZERO tomatoes, because he can't stop picking them!
The three Black Beauty Zucchini Squash.
There were only supposed to be 2, but a rogue seed made its way into the dirt and I haven't culled it.
The three Juliets that I started from seeds. They're still much smaller than the store bought ones. And I still have the last two plants to deliver to JSS.
Blooms on the store bought Juliets! I'm pretty excited. I remember last year when we had 4 Juliets and I'd pick 50 of the little tomatoes a day sometimes. And this year we have SEVEN.
three of the four muskmelons plants. I planted them close to the fence to they could climb it. It happened like that accidentally last year and I liked the results. The ones that grew up the fence seemed to do better than the ones that grew on the ground.
the blueberries. The two smaller ones in the front are the Elliotts and the larger one in the back is a Chippewa. Hurray for cross-pollination!
three of the five (!!) butternut squash. I planted as many by the fence as I could but there are a couple that will be growing on the ground.
The blackberries didn't make it. I'm a little sad. I don't like to see anything (that includes plants in my garden) die. But I've been watering them pruning back the dead parts and there's already new growth on one of the plants. That's promising. Husband doesn't seem to mind too much that they're gone. If they don't bounce back next year, we'll probably replace them.There's still not much/anything really going on with the fennel. soon hopefully. And, of course, the mint and basil are doing great. I've made four batches of pesto so far and gallons and gallons of mint tea.
