Lately a lot has been going on in the garden. The plants are really starting to take off and I’ve already enjoyed some great yields from both the purple Marconi beans (I can barely pick them fast enough!) and the zucchini. On everything else, you can see the veggies starting to form. It’s so exciting to watch the veggies grow and wait for them to mature for picking and soon eating. Here are some pictures of the garden goings for your viewing pleasure.
Despite some early tomato heartache, this growing season is going fabulously. I’m super excited about the baby pumpkins. There have to be about 8 already in garden, and my dad and I keep cutting the leaves of the plant back because they’re attempting garden domination. I don’t really mind the plants are pretty and the little guys they produce are so cool!
P.S.: I finished reading Tomatoland on thursday. Last night I started reading Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, and I haven’t really been able to put it down. Already, I recommend it to everyone. I’m off to do some work in the garden, and probably a bit of baking some more zucchini bread (between the CSA and my three plants, I’m not keeping up!) but expect a post about it sometime soon.
