Things are finally starting to mature in the garden. It seemed like the plants were in a holding pattern for the longest time. Staying green, but just not getting any bigger.
The temperature has been a bit warmer over the past week (low 90’s) and I think the garden is really enjoying it. Plus add to that a few days of rain. That was the kick-start the garden needed.
The zucchini has really taken off. I can tell these things are going to get huge.
Maybe a little to big for my garden. But hey, the wife wanted zucchini so the wife gets zucchini.
The leek is finally thickening up. It has been hairlike forever, but just this past week started bulking up a bit. It also started to spread out into a more leek like form.
The leaves on this pepper plant look almost perfect. I don’t expect them to stay that way for long.
Especially if whatever is eating my basil discovers this.
I am really excited about the eggplant this year. I think they are one of the most beautiful fruits you can grow. The smooth skin and deep colors that they get is pleasing to the eye and to the touch. Throw in the pleasure of taste, and eggplant is rockin’ the garden.
Also eggplant parmesan is one of my favorite dishes, another reason to get excited.
Something has been munching on my basil. I can understand why, the aroma is amazing. Hope they leave some for me.
The lettuce mix has been going crazy. We have been cutting salads out of here everyday and it grows back so quickly.
Last nights trimming. I barely even made a dent in the stuff. Great color and really tasty too. We definitely will grow this lettuce mix again next year.
The lettuce is helping Seed to Salad live up to its name.
Tomato in bloom.
Looks like we have a Memorial Day tomato back there.
Or a bunch!
Until next time,
