Garden of delights

Our little veggie garden is growing - and fast! Just last week I ate the very first picking from it, two zucchini and a summer squash.
They were so unbelievably sweet!

We haven't picked anything else yet, but everything is pretty darn close...

Green bell peppers


Cucumber

Lovely big tomatoes (I'm very excited for these!)


Some of the squash have spread so far that they are growing outside the confines of the garden fence, and still not a nibble from the nearby family of bunnies.

The black raspberries (which I previously thought were blackberries) continue to ripen by the bowl full. We've already made several crumbles and there are gobs more to be had.

Only one pumpkin seems to be growing, but isn't it growing wonderfully?

The cilantro (and other herbs) are growing like mad and even flowering. The little blossoms are so pretty, I don't have t he heart to chop them.




And the green beans are finally coming along too!

JalapeƱos right behind
and even the potatoes are getting big

It is so delightfully satisfying to watch this all unfold in my little yard. I must admit, I am quite proud of myself.

I'm so jealous of your dirt! Does that sound silly? Enjoy your bounty. Love, Lisa

Thanks for the new pictures. It was worth the wait. We have cherry tomatoes galore, but planted without planning - who thought it would work. The flower shots are lovely it must be a fun surprise to see what blooms next. Love Cynthia
