Activity is picking up a bit this week in the garden as temperatures have stayed steady in the 80′s and low 90′s. After a long dry spell it finally rained this weekend.
The plants know the difference between hose water and rain. That is for sure!
My first eggplant flower.
Don’t worry I won’t hurt you Mr. Eggplant. No need to show me your thorns.
Click on the picture and take a closer look at the base of the flower. Did you know it did that?
The cilantro seed germination was not as successful as I had hoped. Though this one turned out alright.
Hope it stays strong because it’s all I have.
This week all the summer squash produced flowers. I swear it happened overnight. The flowers are really delicate as some have already fallen off.
This lettuce is so tightly wrapped I think I could pull it out of the ground and beat all the rabbits over the head with it.
I feel like I am in the movie Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

Makin’ it rain!
The cucumber is doing extremely well. It doubled in size this week.
Snow peas. Lets have some!
What do you think? Add some dip or straight off the vine?
