Growing Garden

I was away from the garden for a few days this week on a family vacation and boy did the garden grow during those four days.  Everything is bigger and greener than when I left.  The plants are big enough now that the ground based bugs are not causing much problems anymore and we are still early enough the flying insects haven’t started attacking yet.  This is the time of year when the garden goes from neat and orderly to crowded and messy. Even still, great progress this week.

No pods forming yet, but they have got to be getting close.

The plant itself isn’t very tall yet, so I don’t know if these little guys will hang around and become full size cukes or not, but it is encouraging to see some fruit starting.

Tomato blossoms

Not too bad considering I started this guy from a seed.  I wish I got them started a bit earlier, but this plant at least seems to be doing pretty well.

Can’t wait to slice once of these up and cook it on the grill.

Since the last post on the Sunflowers, they have grown about a foot in the last week.  I wish I had an easy way to get a webcam out in the garden, I’d place a measuring stick next to these and watch them grow.  With favorable weather forecast for next week as well, I expect another foot or more.
