These posts are turning into my favorite posts each week; I really enjoy writing about our garden and how much it’s progressed each week. This week we had another week of humid weather and a few thunderstorms, and the garden really enjoyed it.
I think the zucchini plants felt pressure from the corn, because they are taking over their area so much it’s difficult to walk past them. We already have about 11 little zucchini growing and the same with the spaghetti squash.
The cucumber plants really took off this week as well; we even have a tiny little cucumber growing already. (bottom right)
The tomatoes are doing excellent; on Monday I noticed about 3 tomatoes growing on one plant, but now 4 of the plants each have a branch of tomatoes growing. And all of the plants have gotten larger.
(I’m writing this on my deck and I just had to chase a chipmunk out of the garden, it was digging a hole under a tomato plant.)
And the corn. I think I will let the picture speak for itself. Although I’d like to add that it’s already knee high, before the forth of july.
Green beans have started to grow! The plants are huge and tiny little green beans have been growing this week. My dog, Spinaci, loves green beans and has already attempted to steal one.
The little hot banana pepper that started growing last week has grown a ton and there are tiny starts on the other plants. (bottom left)
The brussels sprouts (bottom right) are doing well, their big leaves lowered to sturdy them this week.
My little herb corner is doing really well, each plant has gotten really big and my thyme plant has come back to life. The basil and parsley seeds I planted a few weeks ago have finally turned into little plants.
(Just chased another chipmunk away from the blueberry plant.)
Speaking of the blueberry plant, it’s filled with blueberries, but none have ripened yet. (bottom right)
