Back upstate again and I went tearing down to the garden to see what I had missed… remember this little guy…
well let me introduce you to this BAD BOY!
I swear every time I turn around this melon GETS BIGGER… kinda scary.
How about this cute thing for a massive “oh shame!”
hardly a vineyard… but it’s a start! and they WERE green…
the kale continues to truck along and along and along and along…. we have been picking and eating this since early June I think and it shows no sign of slowing down.
and competing with the kale for the “I’m going to take over the universe, or rather, garden”, title is cucumber plant! steadily increasing it’s size over the other beds… I think the poor broccoli beside it, doesn’t stand a chance.
it’s laden with these delicious cucumbers that are super CRUNCHY!
the tomato plants however needed some help, they are so laden with tomatoes (YAY) and have so outgrown their support cages they are practically ripping them out of the ground. I had to tie them onto the fence to anchor and support them, which is now a maze of tomato limbs and twine. It’s like doing the “limbo” to get through.
and I am greedily wringing my hands in anticipation of my FIRST year of growing my own tomatoes! can’t be too much longer…
