So, recall to mind that I started my very FIRST garden this year. Well, actually, it's become as much Hubby's project as it is mine. He was surprised to find how much he enjoyed growing his own food!
So now it's June and this is what our little garden looks like...crazy!! (Please overlook the weeds...woops. :)
The plant that has most intrigued me is the zucchini plant. Hello it's gargantuan!! The stems are about quarter-sized in diameter.
I kept watching, waiting to see how and where the zucchini would grow in. (All you seasoned gardeners please pardon my novice wonder and awe.) Then these big beautiful orange blossoms came up.
Then the next thing I knew, I saw zucchini this size. Did it happen overnight? Surely not, I must have missed a day or two of watching.
We've also got lots and lots of green tomatoes and some basil.
We've also had just enough lettuce to provide some salads for lunch here and there.
One pepper plant died. The other looks pretty sad, but we're still hoping.
The cilantro is finished and has produced little white flowers. Not sure what to do with it now...any one know? Just uproot it or let it seed off? Whatever that means...I'm not really sure...I just hear people say it.
I have sooo many more things I want to do next year, and so little space. I just ordered the book "The Backyard Homestead" so we'll see if it has any tips on how to make use of the space we have.
