This has not been a good year for gardening. Well, it started out not being a good year for gardening. The weather in the last couple of weeks has been amazing gardening weather, hot days, soaking rains in the evening...I may get to can something this year after all!
Although the Major has decided that we are going to compost-pile-garden only from now on...check out the volunteer zucchini plant that came up this year.
And the volunteer tomato bush...there are two of these actually in two different parts of the compost pile. They're twice the size of the tomatoes we planted in the "real" garden.
This is what our potatoes looked like a week ago...this is the first year we've tried potatoes and we really thought we messed them up.
These are the potatoes as of last night....I guess we didn't mess them up too badly!
A view of our garden area....really hoping that next year we can pull it together and get a good harvest..this year with the weather being what it was we just couldn't get stuff into the ground on time and the plants the Major started got leggy and now they're really behind...although they seem to be coming back and even though the tomato plants are short, they are very deep green and healthy looking. Lets hope we have a long enough summer so they can produce.
We have these popping up all through the garden area too...presents from Spork and Spam whom were wintered here to help till up the garden soil. Lots of squash-family plants...I think this one might be a pumpkin.
All in all its been a pretty good end of June, beginning of July. The weather has been hot but not too bad...and the plants look happy. How is your garden growing?
