Remember the babies we planted?

Well, the tomato, zucchini, cucumbers, beans, and melons are making a statement in our backyard! The volunteer tomato plant is at least 5' wide and overshadowing the little garlics in one of the beds, but at the same time it's looking out for all its' little sister plants.

You can see the "mama" plant behind all the babies that are now growing taller and taller.

cucumbers are vineing up by sending out little curlie ques trying to find something to latch we surrounded them with a portable doggie fence and gave them a piece of wood to reach up for!
One of the bean plants is still only 5" tall, but its' already sent out a few beans!

I think we're going have more tomatoes than we know what to do with...
anyone have a good marinara recipe?

  1. No, but I can totally help you eat them!!! You know for a fact that I have never had much luck gardening so I may be completely out of place mentioning this, but are those worm holes in the leaf of the green beans? Are the outer edges eaten by some insect or critter? Everything I've ever tried to grow has gotten eaten by Undesirables (such as honkin' big tomato worms) so those holes make me shudder and fear for the lives of the tomatoes (the most precious fruit of all)! Aside from that one little concern, I am in awe of how abundant your garden looks! It's very exciting.
