Garden Progress

5 Jul

I haven’t been able to spend much time in the garden with all the wet weather we’ve had, but it seems to be thriving on the lack of attention.

I did manage to cultivate and do some weeding since these pictures were taken on Friday, so it looks better now. Sadly, my first picking will probably be zucchini while I’m gone.

      Thanks. Not sure taking a class when everything is crazy at home is really something I’ll enjoy, but I’ll get through it. Thankfully, I have a great family and friends.

      It’s very close. I might actually get to pick that one before I leave, but that’s just not fair. LOL

      That’s a perk of living in Iowa. Great soil!

    Yup! Your garden is doing well! Especially the tomatoes! Our tomatoes are NOT doing as well as yours! In fact, one of the Early Girls doesn’t even have any fruit on it! Your zucchini looks like just the right size for us! Our garden plot is only about 12′ x 12′ !! If you have a small yard you have a small garden!
