After the craziness of the fair died down (By the way – the kids did great – a thank you to everyone who wished them well!) – it was time to dig out the garden.
Once I found the plants again, I had some pleasant surprises!The corn has been growing fast and already has tassels and silk. My mouth waters just looking at it!
I found several baby watermelon tucked away under the leaves.
The winter squash, pumpkin and some volunteer gourds have taken over the bottom section! I see several little pumpkins and butternut squash forming, but absolutely no zucchini or summer squash.
Am I the only one in the world who can’t grow a zucchini?
And then there’s our summer staple – the fresh green bean. We’ve had just enough to eat fresh – lightly steamed and served with butter. Yum!
Somehow all the sweat and hard work is worth it when you see those fresh veggies on the table!
