Photo below - more corn and cucumbers, and also 3 little jelly bean tomatoes from the swp's.
Photo below - what's this? There's a squash in there...It's the first of the season, and several more are to follow. Me and the wife also picked some pretty good blueberries from the bushes next to the woods, and a plum, too!
The corn has since been removed from the swc's, and watermelons have taken their place. It was certainly time for it, because the melon vines that were started in pots a while back had already grown about 2 feet long, and one even had a female bloom on it. Only thing is - I still don't know what will be done with the vines as they get longer. Perhaps just let them run across the yard? Maybe....Since alot of the cucumber vines had attached themselves to a few corn stalks, I roughed them up a bit while removing them. Oops. That's ok, they weren't damaged, and should look much better in a few days.
In other news, about 25 people in separate groups toured the garden on Saturday, and it was scorching hot! Oh gosh...I was sweating like a pack mule, and served cold lemonade to those that wanted some, too. It was the least I could do since some drove 40 miles to pay the garden a visit. A few took pictures of the various things I had to show, and i'm glad they found my garden interesting.
Phillip Oliver over at dirt therapy came by, and also Jerry and Lori over at soulcatching photography. It was great to have them visit, and i'd love to see some pictures from the outing.
As usual, Jude completely stole the show with her frisbee-catching ability. Hehe....I'm thinking of letting people just come to see her, then mention something like "oh, by the way...I also have a garden"...That little stinker....She's such a good dog, though. Anyway, even though the heat really took it out of me - it was a very good day for the garden and me. :-)
Take care, and happy gardening!
