The squash is coming out! Last Friday we had our first squash blossom and when I looked at the plant today there was a teeny green squash where the flower used to be. Another plant has a flower as well. I can’t wait to see more of the squash fruit on the plants. The cucumbers are starting to spread out and produce flowers as well. The little tendrils grab on to anything they can for support (including the surrounding weeds).
The two pumpkin seedlings that popped up last week seem to be doing well. They are starting to develop much larger leaves. More should be showing up in the next few weeks. If all goes according to plan, that is. The tomatoes are really taking off! Some of the plants are so bushy that it’s hard to see where the cage around it is. They look green and healthy and are really showing off their fruit. Peppers seem to be lagging behind a bit but many of the plants have flowers and even fruit peaking out from behind the leaves.
The carrots are morning the loss of their brothers and sisters but are enjoying their new, more roomy rows. By the end of this week we are hoping to put in the mulch and river rock and build the compost bin so we can start filling it up with all the garden goodies we can find!default
