Twice this week I went out to our garden to get some food for dinner. It was so nice not to have to bleach and wash our lettuce and mint three times! Here are some pictures. Things are coming along.
We noticed this leaf yesterday. It's pretty neat how it shot up overnight and has since unrolled itself into a great palm leaf.
The watermelon are thriving. They have yet to flower though. I'm hoping the cucumbers don't take them over.
Same with the lettuce. Does anyone know if we take a few leaves off at a time if they will keep growing?
Here is our first cucumber. Cutecumber... (that's a shout out to my first fifth grade class)
These tomato plants look to be out of control, but they are not. They are very healthy and happy. We have lots and lots of flowers and small green tomatoes!
We have tomatoes, lettuce and carrots in these beds.
Here is my herb garden. I just planted it last week so it has a lot of growing to do. The straws and clothes pins are how I labeled them.
Here are the cucumbers. They are growing big and tall. We have lots of flowers. Patrick wants to make pickles but I'm not too keen on the idea.
Here's a picture of the "baby" just bc she is cute.
