We have been blessed with a lot of rain lately. The garden is loving it! The potatoes have grown a lot! We keep having to stack more bricks. It's now about 2 1/2 feet tall. Here lately we have been adding dirt every few days.
The squash also have grown so big! They are starting to flower with little squash!
The okra is growing too, although a little slower.
Apparently we bought the wrong kind of green beans. Instead of bush beans, we bought pole beans. So, we have been improvising so they will have something to climb up.
The cucumber plants are starting to spread out.
While not quite as big as the squash, the zucchini are growing too.
Most of the canteloupe we planted came up.
We planted almost a whole row of watermelon, but only 4 plants came up. This should be plenty, though.
We also planted carrots, onions, and peppers, but none of them came up. Well, some of the carrots may have came up, but when we weeded my son may have pulled them up by accident. Also, remember all that lettuce that looked really good early on. Well, I only have 1 plant that grew up. This is it below.
I also tried growing tomato plants from seeds, but they are taking forever. They just kinda seemed to stop growing, so I gave up and bought this plant.
Do you have a garden? How is it doing?
