I don’t know what the weather is like where you live but we are in a drought. We need rain desperately. Our grass is turning brown and our garden is only surviving because I have been watering it.
Thankfully, the garden is starting to give us some yummy produce despite our lack of rain. We have been eating lots of zucchini and broccoli, and I even picked a gallon of green beans. We are really starting to enjoy the fruits of our labors.
The first heads of broccoli were ready the day we left for vacation so I took them with us. I didn’t even get a picture of them, but they were big, beautiful, and yummy. Now we are getting new, smaller heads of broccoli. I haven’t frozen any and will probably just serve it as it becomes ready instead.
The corn has started tasseling and there are small ears of corn forming. I can’t believe how much it has grown in the past month. The corn really makes Janna look little now.
The cabbage heads are still fairly small but the plants themselves are enormous.
Here are a few of those green beans I was talking about. I probably need to go out and pick again before I water tonight.
We have a few blackberries that are ripe, and I am guessing that we will have more in the next week or two.
Our back garden spot is doing alright. The sweet potatoes haven’t spread much, so I am hoping they start growing more soon.
I have several butternut squash that are almost full size. The plants have really taken off lately.
Check out this little pumpkin that I found hiding under some leaves. I am hopeful we will have enough to enjoy this fall.
Well, that’s a look at my garden this week. How is your garden growing?
