Garden Update

Well, I missed one week of my garden update due to several days of rain. These pictures were taken late Thursday of last week since rain was expected (and arrived) on Friday. I am not complaining about the rain at all. It is wonderful to not have to water the garden. Rain water makes it grow so much better anyway.

The Herbs

The herbs have done very well in the potting soil and have really taken off. I hope they will hold a few more weeks before needing a trim. I did find a nice focaccia bread recipe that calls for lots of fresh herbs. It sounds like the perfect use for all of these lovely herbs.

Lettuces, Radishes, Squash, Pumpkins, & Watermelons

The watermelon plants have been the slowest growing of the bunch. They are finally getting additional leaves. I have started seeing tiny radishes and will start picking those in a couple of weeks. I like them best when they are young and not too hot.

Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers, and Eggplants

Everything in this section is doing well with the exception of the hot pepper plant. The wind blew is over and broke the stalk. There were no paw prints so the cats are in the clear. I will need to stake up the other pepper and tomato plants.

Paris has finally learned to stay out of the garden for the most part. She still loves the cool, damp dirt and especially loves having her picture taken.
