Thursday in the Garden

This week we will showcase our vegetable garden...
Here are the zucchini...they are doing quite well. The squash are not growing like we would like...not sure what is going on there. The zucchini are full of blooms!

Here is a dill. We read in the Farmer's Almanac that dill is a friend of squash and will help keep away the squash bugs. It seems to like where we placed it and is growing fine. I wonder if maybe the squash don't like it?
The tomatoes are growing and producing...won't be long before these babies will turn red. Then it will be time for a yummy tomato sandwich!

Can you see the baby bell pepper growing? There are many more blooms waiting to become a pepper too! Wouldn't you like to be a pepper to? Who remembers that commercial?

Here's a view of the whole space. It isn't very large, but it grows plenty for Auntie and me. The large bush at the back is a butterfly bush. The birds enjoy hanging out in it too.

Next week - flowers!

  5. Your garden looks terrific! We are jealous of the pepper plant. We have tried to grow peppers here three different times with no luck. Just a bit too cool here for peppers.

  6. We had to look and see where you live, 'cause you already have tomatoes & peppers. We're in Whisk-onsin, so have a shorter growing season.

  7. What great plants you have - and to have so much nearing readiness so early is so amazing to me - I am used to everything being later in the summer. Maybe the squash thinks it is at our house this year and is waiting because of that!

  14. You have a beautiful garden! We can't grow veggies here because we have very few full sun spots, but we like to see them! And thank you so much for stopping by our blog (Franklin was kind of nervous about his first gardening post, so we stuck with marigolds!)

    P.S. Love the nip nanner photo below!

  16. Nice! We like salads or mostly we like to tear holes in the salad bag! But you could make a nice salad with your veggies there!
