How Does My Garden Grow?

We have baby corn!! I am so excited! Last year our corn did not survive this long - but that is another story (you may want to ask Kirk about that!)

We have Bodacious Sweet Yellow corn, Oaxacan Green, and Smoke Signals corn with cobs forming and Strawberry Popcorn growing steadily! Much of the corn is now over 6 feet tall.

Here are a couple of photos of my little green tomatoes, Romas in the first picture and Cherokee Purple in the second. So far, much to the little boy's disappointment, no tomato worms! Last year we went out each morning and used water guns to shoot the worms off into a bucket of soapy water. If we don't get worms soon, we may have to find another target!

Chocolate bell peppers:

Now if they only tasted like chocolate!

Watermelon, growing, growing...gone! (cause we LOVE watermelon!)
This is a Black Diamond Watermelon for my husband -  you're welcome honey!

What a fabulous garden! I wish we could have one, but living near the forest we have too many animals that come to visit--we'd be their daily restaurant! Thanks for playing in DRS Designs Stamp A Day Give Away! Good Luck to you!
