Garden Update: Week 18
Some tomatoes ready to pick.
Got 3 off the plant.
I picked 2 squash
I picked 7 pea pods.
And then on another day I picked 2 more tomatoes.
I took tomatoes and peas to work as a snack.
I discovered a cucumber. This little guy is growing so fast. I'm probably going to pick it tomorrow.
Some cucumber blossoms. You can see how big the cucumber has gotten just in a few days at bottom right.
My basil has grown back up. :) I need to pick some.
I have some new eggplant blossoms. I also have some bugs eating the leaves. :(
This morning, I picked another tomato.
This is my first daisy that popped for the year. So pretty. I can't wait until they all pop. It always looks so pretty. These are in my front flower bed. I also have star gazer lillies which have popped too.
I keep finding ladybugs on the daisies. :)
This one is my favorite. :) I almost picked her up and put her in my garden but I figured she was happy with the daisies so I left her alone.
I made a bee water station.
I have several peppers.
I picked this pepper today.
Still waiting for this guy to turn red.
Both my lettuce plants are done. They have been bolting and I read that it's because they don't like heat. We've had some real humid days here in Virginia lately. I think they look pretty though, so I think I'll let them continue bolting for now. The lettuce probably isn't edible because once it bolts it gets a bitter taste.
Here's my watermelon plant.
Little blossoms on it today.
This is my carnival squash.
Blossoms on this too.
I dug up 12 potatoes yesterday.
That's pretty much everything that happened this week. :) Happy Gardening!
