Garden Progress

Well, it has been 2 weeks since the last update, thus it is time for a new set of photos from the garden. Things have been growing nicely with the heat wave we just had, and now with the milder temps back in the area, the lettuce and peas are loving it. A few pictures are worth a few thousand words. . .

Here is Bed C- Giant Syrian, Todd County Amish, Big Beef, and Lemon Boy tomatoes in the back. Carrots, chives, snaps, marigolds, and chilly chili peppers in the front. The bell pepper is hiding behind the chives- see if you can find it.

Bed E- mostly haricot verts. Eggplant in the middle, one renegade blooming onion from last year, along with a zinnia, a few snaps, some marigolds, and a dahlia in the front.Bed L- lettuce in front (note one variety is missing- went to seed). Cukes on the trellace, peas going like gangbusters in the background. Zinnia in the back, leeks on the left, marigolds, snaps, and peppers on the right. Bed T- Cherokee Purple, Earl's Faux, Brandywine, and Kellogg's Breakfast tomato varieties in the back. Parsnips on the left, zinnias on the right, Edamame scattered throughout. Chilly chili peppers and snaps in the front. Next, on to the individual photos:

Peas- going crazy right now. Finally.

Haricot verts- flowering means french beans on the dinner table will be right around the corner!
Cukes climbing their teepee trellace I made them.

My first tomato of the year, about the size of a small marble on my Big Beef plant:

Carrots. . . I love how delicate their greenery is.

And last but not least, Z is for zinnia. One of my favorite flowers in the garden budding. . .
