The Vegetable Garden is Starting to Hit its Stride
The garden is starting to roll. The rains and overcast days are just what the young plants needed to get a break from recent low 90 degree temps. We've got 4 to 6 inch long cucumbers all over the place. Already, there is one Sun Jewel Melon already 6" long and 3" in diameter. The tomatoes plants are 2' tall and starting to flower heavily. We are up to 21 Potato plants are now showing above ground. I saw at least 3 small Canteloupe about an inch in diameter starting to form. The Yellow Squash seedling are now 1' x 1' and beautiful. The newer seedlings are starting to put on new dark green leaves to replace those sickly light green "I was raising a greenhouse" leaves. Its an exciting time in the garden.
