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?
