Veggie Garden-1, Chipmunk-0
July 5, 2012 5 Comments
It’s been a couple weeks since I posted pictures of the veggie garden. I’m surprised, the little critters have managed to keep out of it. I think it had something to do with my scent when I weeded. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
The green pepper plant has started to flower,
And we have tomatoes on the vine.
The broccoli has floweretts already, which is surprising as it was one of the secondary veggies we planted.
These are the vines (l-r) cucumber, butternut squash, cucumber. No flowers yet.
These are the veggies we planted to replace the corn (top left) watermelon, (bottom left) early squash, (centre) corn, (bottom right) lettuce.
And then a whole pile of cauliflower. We have six plants total. I don’t know if I can eat that much cauliflower, though.
These are peas, green beans and yellow beans. Don’t ask me which are which. Husband planted them so I have no idea.
Oh, and beans/peas in a barrel. They started hooking on to each other and I had to break a few runners to pull them apart, but so far, so good.
I don’t know which surprises me more; the fact these are growing so well, or that I’m keeping up with the maintenance. We didn’t do a garden last year and the year before I was excited but that quickly changed. I don’t know why I changed this year. Maybe it’s all those reports I keep hearing about how we need to get back into eating real food.
YES! I SEE YOU!
