Late post on my garden update. This past week was week 25.
I did some cleaning up. I took off the potted plants that are done. I put them over in the dumping area to be cleaned out. (in background, top left)
Here's what my deck looks like right now.
Early in the week I picked some toms, a watermelon and an eggplant.
Look at that pretty purple color.
I also ended up picking 2 chili peppers and a pea pod.
I picked my 3 carnival squash. How cute are they? The one on the left is the biggest one. There's a small hole in the back of it. I'm guessing from a worm? The other 2 are perfect. I'm keeping them around for fall decoration. They are too tiny to eat.
This guy would have just been perfect if there wasn't a hole.
I picked my spaghetti squash. The shape is weird. It's not like the usual spaghetti squash. And it's small. I figured I'd pick it now since it seems ripe before a worm attacks it.
My watermelons weren't getting any bigger. I knocked on one and it was hollow. I went ahead and cut one open to see if it was ripe.
As soon as I sliced it open I could smell the sweet watermelon.
I tasted a slice and it tasted so good.
The next day I picked the other 3 watermelons and cut them open and sliced them for later.
On Sunday morning I picked 2 more pea pods.
I also picked a yellow tomato.
I have some more cucumbers coming in.
Another sunflower coming in.
A multicolored rotted zucchini.
Peppers....I believe this guy is turning purple. :)
Sweet bells coming in.
A new eggplant blossom.
I picked the dead sunflowers and took the seeds out. I put the seeds on the rail for the birds. The seeds were gone by that afternoon.
I got some more corn on the cob last week. MMMMMM I actually froze the corn I had so I could use it later. Read about it here.
I also got 2 garlic bulbs from a friend who has a garden. She has so much garlic coming in she doesn't know what to do with it all. :)
