It's almost mid-July and our garden is (for the most part) growing quite nicely. The only thing that is not going to make it is the broccoli. Something is eating it and I really don't want to use a pesticide, so we will just have to eat store-bought broccoli.
But our cucumbers are growing like crazy. They are scaling the side of our cat deterrent, a.k.a chicken wire. I can't wait to can dill pickles. Our jalapeno plant is on the left.
Speaking of dill I had to cut it way back. It started to seed and now I'm afraid I will have dill everywhere.
I do have some green beans sprouting. Can you say fried green beans???
We have our first zucchini growing and I can already smell the zucchini bread. I think by this weekend we'll be eating some!!
I'm really happy my tomatoes are FINALLY starting to turn red. The first one is a grape tomato. It is teeny tiny.
The others are coming along. When they finally turn we'll have to be ready. I'm thinking of canning some spaghetti sauce or stewed tomatoes. I love stewed tomatoes, especially in chili!
