Our garden has exploded these last few weeks and Stevo wants to show it off! We've been trying to eat all the lettuce and spinach, after we realized it apparently doesn't do well in the heat. I have loved having salads every day for lunch and Anna always enjoys helping us harvest!
We've got a bunch of tomatoes getting ready to ripen - they are still pretty green but they look like they are going to be tasty. We've also got a bunch of green beans that actually look ready to pick, and a bunch of buds on the squash and zucchini plants. The pumpkin plant that we planted on a whim is pretty much taken over the garden, haha. The various fruits (watermelon, raspberries, strawberries) look like they're chugging along - we knew it would take a while for those but I'm impatient! The herbs up on the porch are also doing fantastic - we've already used the mint and basil and oregano a ton, and even some of the cilantro. The only thing that looks like it never really worked was celery, but given how little we eat it, we're not really all that upset about it.
Anyway here are some pictures:
Kingsley's been doing his job at keeping the animals away!
The massive pumpkin plant
Zucchini and Cucumber
Strawberries and then you can also see that we recently planted some lavender.
More tomatoes...I think these plants are trying to escape.
One of the porch herb planters...this one is the mint.
