A Garden Update!

Our garden is really starting to produce. This evening we found our first tiny watermelon!

There are pumpkins, bell peppers, and tomatoes growing and we have eaten the first few zucchini and crookneck squash.

Leaf lettuce is abundant and the green bean plants have blooms. The first planting of corn and the sunflowers are about 4 feet tall.

I have picked several hot peppers and am freezing them until the tomatoes are ready to make into salsa. I promised my brother homemade salsa by the 4th of July, so those tomatoes are right on schedule!

While taking these photos I also found a cantaloupe! The kids are so ready for those melons to ripen!
