I think that this blog is overdue for an update post on the garden; after all, it is Vegetablog 😉
~ ~ ~
Let me just start by saying that Husband is awesome. Since I am pretty much unable to do anything in the garden, he spent some time in the hot sun on the day before Father’s Day, weeding (and pulling out a ridiculous number of tomato volunteers) and tying up the tomatoes to the stakes. He is so great 🙂
I couldn’t bear to even take photos of the garden before the weeding, but I did take a bunch afterward!
First, the left side of the garden:
I was glad to see that there are finally cucumbers coming up. They seem to be off to a slow start, though. I’m impatient to eat what is probably my favorite of my garden produce!
I think it’s interesting to see the disparity in the two zucchini plants. The plant from the Burpee seed is in the corner, and the plant from the Lake Valley seed is in the foreground. Planted at the same time, and sprouted at almost the same time, too!
The Lake Valley zucchini has some buds on it. Hooray!
In the photo two above, you can also see the Carmen pepper plant. There’s a little pepper growing on it!
The pepper plant we started from seed is barely there (no photo this time). But somehow it still seems to be alive. We’re leaving it for now, but I don’t think we’ll be getting much off of that plant this year!
The right side of the garden is the “tomato side.”
I’m happy to see that at least the tomato plants we purchased are starting to form tomatoes.
On the back porch, the herb box is filling out. It looks like just basil and dill have come up (the savory and marjoram didn’t appear), but that is totally fine with me, since those are the herbs I would have chosen anyway.
And my daughter’s cherry tomato plant is full of tomatoes! I’m so excited for them to turn red so that she can pick them 🙂
