How Does Your Garden Grow?


Things are moving along quite nicely. The tomatoes, although late this year, look fab! They are loaded with green tomatoes. I may have to fry some up.
The cucumber vines are starting to climb, blossom and produce tiny cukes. Soon I'll be eating cucumber sandwiches. I tend to eat at one a day when they're in season.
The Lima beans are starting to run. I never knew that I liked Lima beans until my husband insisted upon growing them. He said that fresh beans tasted nothing like the dried ones that they sell in grocery stores. He was right. Picked green, shelled (by John while he watches football), blanched, frozen and stored in freezer containers. Love 'em!
Now, we're waiting on the rain that is predicted for tomorrow. If that doesn't happen, we'll turn on the soaker hoses. A little sunshine. A little rain. A lot of happiness.
So, how does your garden grow?
Until next time.....

Your plants look so good. I can almost taste the cucumbers! Just this afternoon, we are finally getting rain. Maybe you'll get some rain too. Enjoy the weekend.

Yum, your garden continues to come along nicely. I agree about the lima beans, they are wonderful fresh. Keep your eye out for hornworms.

I've started some tomato plants from seeds. They are about 8-10 inches tall now. We're going to try planting them upside down in 5 gallon buckets, otherwise the bugs and critters will eat them. I've got some amazing plants in the landscape this year. One is a beach sunflower that has taken over. And I have a regular sunflower that has popped up...about 3 feet tall now. I'm hoping to post some pics tomorrow.
