Garden again

Seems like all I do is talk about the garden!
Here I go again :-)

I'm growing corn in 5-gallon buckets on the back patio. The tassels are emerging and I'm excited! I currently have 10 healthy stalks, been having to water them like crazy due to the small-ish containers and the super-dry weather. They're pretty happy so far.

This morning I picked the second cucumber to grow on the vine in the front flowerbed. It's a fatty!

I think one of the shadier vines has a cuke the size/shape of a golf ball, will have to crawl under the elephant ears to find out.

Behold: Baby watermelon.
It's about 3/4 inch (2cm) long.

Lastly, the mango tree growing by the patio door. It is thriving and periodically puts out a new segment of leaves.
