Garden's growing great
I've been excited about our little garden patch, this is the first year I dug an official one out in the yard.
So far we have tomatoes, pumpkins, sunflowers, bell peppers, jalapeno & banana peppers and watermelon. The corn.... not doing so good due to the harsh heat and drought right after I planted it.
I have some new corn sprouting in starter pots that needs to be put in the ground soon.
The pumpkin vines are growing like crazy, taking over the whole patch. I may have to extend the sides a bit so I can plant the rest of my veggies. Either that, or I may do more 5-gallon bucket gardens on the patio like I did last year, they were pretty successful.
Here's a baby pumpkin in the works......
.....and here is my 1st healthy pumpkin! It's a beauty :-)
Our Mr. Stripey variety tomato plant is growing very well. It was touch-and-go during the drought but now it is thriving.
We bought this one at the garden center, but I do have a few plants doing well that I started from seeds.
How is your garden growing??
