Welcome to the jungle - garden update
Friends I swear our garden just sprouted up overnight!!! Seriously look at what is outside our backdoor.
15 tomato plants all with tomatoes of various sizes and ripeness. But Greg did warn me to get the jars ready. So far we have 5 on the kitchen table ready for eating so I figure that I could can 3 of them.
See the cucumber plant?? Its been staked up 5 times and has given up 2 cucumbers so far. Every green pepper plant has at least 1 pepper and I see one that I am about ready to take off.
The crowder peas and the collard greens are doing nicely.
And the watermelon or cantaloupe is trying very hard to take over the garden. I did see a pretty yellow flower on it today so hopefully we will have some nice fruit soon.
The garlic is about ready for harvest. We have followed the guides and stopped watering it. Now it sits for 2 weeks to dry and then we can harvest it.
We have been very blessed with a fruitful garden this year.
