Garden Update

Our Garden has exploded in the last few weeks. It has been so great watching everything grow and change right before our eyes. I can't wait to start eating it. :)

Our TWO zucchini plants are overtaking everything.

Look at the size of that leaf.

There are about 6-8 blooms on each plant so it looks like we are going to have ALOT of zucchini.

We have three pepper plants with 4-5 baby peppers on each right now. Our tomato plants are growing out of their cages and our cucumber is crawling everywhere.

Our lettuce is almost ready to give us our first salad.

Chris built another box this week with the left over wood, and I transplanted our beans. The zucchini was taking all their sun.

The beans are blooming, so we should see beans forming soon.

The girls are as excited as we are about the garden. They go out and check it every morning after breakfast. We'll see how excited they are when they have to eat the fruits of our labor :).
We also have cilantro and onions...Can't wait to make fresh salsa right from the garden.

we came home from camping today (Thurs) and I thought of your garden when I saw how out of control mine was!!! I was able to pick green beans and yellow squash. Yummy!
