Garden Update

This spring and summer sure have flown by!  I keep thinking 'I need to post about our garden' but life continually gets in the way.  Finally sitting down to write about it a bit - it's doing so well this year!!

We planted quite a bit this year, but still are not utilizing our whole garden.  We didn't want to get too crazy.  Plus, after a very un-plentiful season last year, we didn't want to get too crazy just in case this year went like last year.

I'm happy to say that the garden is thriving this year!  We've had some flops - we've lost a handful of plants, but I figure that's to be expected.  A lot of the seeds I started in our mini greenhouse didn't make it either - I think I started them too early in the season (plus we had a very late frost this year which kept us from getting plants in the ground).  But, now I know that for next year and won't start them quite as early as I did this year.  But, I was able to transfer some jalapenos, zucchini, pumpkins and Brussels sprouts.  And, I'm happy to say that they're all doing fabulous :)

First, I'll share some photos from when we first planted our garden.  We've got corn, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins, peas, beans, Brussels, broccoli, zucchini, romaine, celery, watermelon, onions, kale, and swiss chard planted this year.

About 6 weeks later and our garden looks like this:
Everything is doing great!

We've got cucumbers growing, baby zucchini, tomatoes ripening.  So. Exciting!

Looking forward to the first (of hopefully many!) harvest!  I'm thinking we may have some fresh cucumbers this weekend :)

Happy Gardening!
