How does the garden grow?

The garden is growing very well now that the weather has cooled off a bit and it rains sometimes.

The bucket sweet corn is getting big and has a lot of ears.

I can't help but think this tuft of corn silk looks like Wembley Fraggle is hiding in the stalk.

The watermelon is slowly expanding and the vine has made two more attempts at melons - one appears to be shriveling and the other looks to be growing. I'll start monitoring that one more closely.

Beautiful watermelon flower.

A female pumpkin flower starting to form. I'll have to watch and when it opens I'll need to polinate it with one of the male flowers. This is only the second one I've seen on the vine and I didn't try to polinate the other one and it shriveled up.
