We are so excited to see the seeds and bulbs we’ve planted just blossom!
I don’t think we should have watered the gladiolus with miracle grow the first few times, they are all as tall as Luke! Surprise, our little plants bloom purple flowers. Yay, little shasta daisies popping out on our front porch.
and here is our garden over a week ago…
Now we can see the corn cobs growing, the tomatoes getting fatter, and little cucumbers and peppers starting!
and these huge leaves are the pumpkins taking over the garden…
some leaves are bigger than my face and the vines are running everywhere. lesson learned: put pumpkins by themselves, not in the middle of the garden and not beside the watermelons! I don’t know if the watermelon have a chance.
of course these pictures are before we hit record setting highs in the 100s. Everything out front has gotten fried, but luckily our garden has some shade and we’ve watered it every day. Hopefully rain will come soon, not just for our little garden’s sake but for all the farmers around us!
