11 Days Later....

After being away for 11 days, the garden has grown! Tomatoes are as high as the cages...and little vegetables are appearing.

Here is one small tomato----I am looking forward to tomato, basil, and mozzarella cheese in August!

Zucchini are beginning to grow---this is a yellow variety (I think).

This is the rest of the spinach harvest. The beets have room to grow.

Three Weeks....

It's been over three weeks since I planted the cucumber and zucchini. The cucumber is slowly growing...from two leaves to this:

The zucchini had a big flower on it this morning. I am patiently waiting for more than flowers----though the flowers are quite pretty in the early morning sun.

I am going to be gone for ten days on an adventure with family. I wonder how the plants will change while I am gone.....

Yesterday during our community garden gathering we planted the last empty box. We know it is a bit late, but I am glad that we are trying. It is fun having all the boxes full!

I can't help but keep showing the spinach that I have been eating almost daily! Here is the row of spinach and beets after 5 1/2 weeks.....they were such tiny seeds when we planted them....

First Harvest

Ok ---- It's not a huge harvest, but I got to thin out some of the spinach and enjoy their yummy flavor this weekend after planting them five weeks ago.

It has been a rainy and cool weekend.....wonder how the garden will look this week....

I know this is a vegetable garden...but I love flowers, and this week the flowers that soon will become yummy vegetables have started to bloom. Here is one from a tomato plant.

I think this little white flower is from a pepper plant.

And this one is my favorite....the squash flower.

The Neighbors

In a community garden we have lots of neighbors. Here are a few of mine.
The Salsa Garden
In a few weeks, these plants will have lots of tomatoes, peppers and other salsa making items. It's great to have neighbors who like to eat good food and have a good time!


Some of the neighbors have strawberries. (yummy!) Here are some getting plump and ripe.

The Pretty Garden

One is always happy to have the neighbors with nice landscaping. This is a beautiful garden.

Happy Garden

It was raining and in the 60s this morning. I think the garden was very happy! I don't think the garden will be happy when it is 85 degrees. The spinach is exploding (first row from the left).
