So Much Has Happened!!

  So much has happened!!   Time and circumstances has not let us get to the garden as much as we would like, but Look at what has happened!

First of all thanks to Linda, Annette,  Terry, Donald, Sarah and  all others that have helped us water and weed! For a while there it looked like the weeds would win, but we conquered for now.   We are so proud of being named Garden of the Month.  We are blessed with an awesome team who God uses in a mighty way! 

The has been much speculation about the almost five foot tall flower in Bed 33  We think it is a Sunflower, but it looks like something out of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers.  If it starts dropping pods, I'm gonna RUN!!!!!!!

Our FIRST Purple Cherokee tomatoes!
The garden is doing really well.  We have fruit on the tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet and hot peppers and squash.  Our lettuce is still going strong!  We are all enjoying salads.  Our fellow gardener, Andrew watered our lettuce for s for the few days we could not get to do it.  Thanks Andrew, and I hope you enjoyed your lettuce!!
Our FIRST Green Zebra tomatoes

Our FIRST cuke!!
Linda "accidentally" ate our first cherry tomato yesterday.  She said it was the sweetest tomato she had ever had!  She said  we need to plant more Sun Gold tomato plants.   I will swing by Woodley's and get a couple today.

Look at  the size of those squash leaves?  They are HUGE.  We have lots of blossoms, and we fear the squash will be squished.  Linda will be thinning them out today, replanting some of the smaller squash in one of our other beds.

Bush beans and beets

Bed 5 on May 18

We will be planting our last bed today.  Small yellow meat watermelons and Crimson Sweets, and carrots!  We have a plethora of seeds, so will also plant a little bit more of this and a little bit more of that. 

Well, I think we caught up on everything, more pictures will follow (can't find my camera cord), will post more tomorrow.
