Well, after a few days of glorious sunshine and slathering the children in sunscreen, we are back to overcast skies and cool temperatures. *sigh* I was hoping to say goodbye to my Casper look. Come back, sun, I need you! So does the garden!
The wee garden really flourished with both the heat and sun last week, and, as a result, we’ve got lots of baby veggies making their first appearances.
Baby Cherry Tomatoes. This is the first time I’ve grown the cherry variety, and I’m hoping to get a bumper crop.
Green Pepper buds. My little green pepper plants are just that. Little. I don’t quite know what’s going on here. I talk to them. I encourage them. I water them. They look healthy, but just are not growing. They are easily the smallest plants in the garden. Still, it looks like there will be a couple peppers ... although they will probably be the size of marbles.
I’ve got two cucumber mounds. This one is sporting several baby cuke’s. My oldest gal will be thrilled. She would survive on cucumbers alone if I’d let her.
I just love how the cucumbers send out these tendrils. Isn’t it cool how they curl around the trellis? Don't they kind of remind you of telephone cords? Does anyone remember what telephone cords look like? Hmm, I wonder if my kids know what a telephone cord is!
Speaking of curling, check out how Mother Nature drives these beanies to climb up this trellis!
Lots little baby beans bouncing around in the garden, too.
Any babies showing up in your gardens?
