Let me start by saying holy crapadoodle again lol! And that I give the weather full credit so far for how well my little vegetable garden is doing! I gave it one dose of fertilizer but I don’t dare do that again because I think the plants are already going to outgrow my little garden.
I am going to lead with my self-proclaimed “Awesome Picture.” It was pure luck and involved cooperation with a dragonfly. I love dragonflies… I collect them and even have one tattooed on one of my shoulders… so to have one cooperate long enough for me to snap a really good picture with my cell was a bonus. On a side note, I can remember growing up and being at the cottage summers and playing with dragonflies, frogs and the like. I swear we spent all day outside, either in the water, at the base of the “mountain,” (basically a big rock outcrop that we called a mountain) playing with the frogs in one of the cracks or just swimming…. from April to Thanksgiving. I still love the water and would choose swimming in the lake over a pool any day!
I so enjoy seeing how everything is growing, and knowing that what is just plants right now will be vegetables I can feed my family, straight from the garden. We have already had a huge batch of lettuce come in. So much lettuce in fact that we are continuously eating salads AND I have sent some to work with Chris to share with his coworkers/kids from school (I call them the kids at school because that’s exactly how they act most of the time lol)!
My cucumbers have almost completely filled in the Hula Hoop Trellis I made for them. I have been tying the vines to the hoops since they first starting growing and I am amazed by how much they have covered it. I am starting to think I should have made an arbour instead lol!
My tomato plants are huge and are covered with flowers AND the start of little tomatoes.
Even my pepper plants have flowers, getting ready to form into green peppers.
My celery has taken off big time….
And finally… my broccoli is showing the start of actual broccoli lol. We love broccoli and can’t wait to eat it straight from the garden.
My cauliflower is doing well too but I didn’t notice anything other than leaves yet.
So, all in all, I think my garden is doing really well…. thank you Mother Nature lol!
