It's time for another Garden update. This is week 17. Sorry it's late.
Earlier in the week, the potato flowers opened up real pretty.
I had a lovely visitor in my garden. A dragonfly.
I also found a few ladybugs. YAY!! I'd been wanting to find some and I did. Here's proof of one.
I harvested some veggies.
I got a good amount.
1 cucumber, 1 zucchini, 2 squash, some lettuce and 3 yellow cherry tomatoes.
My big sunflower is still beautiful. Here I am with my gardening hat with my sunflower.
It's losing some leaves. I've also found a lot of small bugs on the leaves. Damn bugs. I keep picking them off but they are eating the leaves.
I repotted yesterday and also cleaned up some pots. The 2 big pots my dad gave me for my garden. I e-mailed him some pictures of my garden and he loved it. He said I was doing a good job. :)
My red potatoes plant is just about dead. There's a few branches that haven't died yet so I'm waiting until all the leaves are completely dead before I 'dig' up potatoes. I can't wait.
I repotted the little potato plant. It sure did take a while for this guy to get going but now it's taking off.
Here's the garden yesterday afternoon. Happy! :)
Here's me sitting on the step getting a selfie.
On Sundays, I fill up my water jugs with the hose.
I also sprayed my feet. It felt so good. It was sooooo hot outside.
Yesterday, I picked some more yellow cherry toms. MMMMM!!!
There's sooooo many tomatoes on this little plant. I had to stake it because it was falling over.
My carnival squash is doing great. So green and healthy. I picked a squash bug off of it yesterday. He kept slowly creeping under the stems but I got his little ass and put him in the jar. :)
I have some peppers.......they are getting bigger and bigger. I'm going to have to keep an eye on horned caterpillars. I don't want them getting to my plant.
Another pepper. It's bigger each day. :)
Here's my watermelon. :)
Here's me again. :)
The plant in my dump area seems to be doing good. I put a jug of water next to it for easy access for when I water it. I think the plant might be pumpkin. Guess we'll see.
My basil flowers I brought in the house and still flowered. Some have fallen off and new ones have come in. I also noticed something.....
My inside plants are good. I have some pea pods that I'll probably pick tomorrow. I pulled back the blind on the tomatoes and discovered......
My first red cherry tom of the season that I grew from seed!!!!! Do you see it?
Sorry pictures aren't the best but here it is. :)
