Garden Progress #2

14 Jun
Before planting:
Day of planting:
6 weeks after planting:
9 weeks after planting:

WOW!! Can you believe the difference in just three short weeks??? I can’t.

Some close-ups of the fruit (pun intended) of our my husband’s labor.

Strawberries 

 Blueberries
Zucchini – we could feed an army with the amount of zucchini we have on our two plants !
Pumpkin – though my husband seems to think it is cantaloupe (we didn’t plant any cantaloupe).
Green beans 

Cucumber – they have spikes!

Corn – I have to admit I really doubted this would produce anything, but happy I was wrong!

Tomatoes!!!!! 

Jalapeno 

Carrots – can you see them trying to peek out? Almost ready… 

 Artichokes
 Rainbow chard – if anyone has a good recipe for this, please let me know! I am at a loss for how to cook it…
 More tomato plants from my husband’s boss – now we have 8 total!
New bird feeder! Ok, not garden related, but I like it.

We’ve already tasted our spinach,  zucchini, yellow squash, and cucumber and they are all delicious. My favorite thing ever is to go out to the garden and pick vegetables and cook them for dinner. It makes me SO happy!

Anyone want to pre-order some tomatoes? Care to buy some zucchini? I don’t think we’re going to be able to eat it all!!

    @kelseyThanks! It is definitely NOT perfect. There are lots of weeds and it is a bit over-crowded, but we we what we can.

    the rainbow chard will be delicious if you just steam it, then toss some salt & pepper, little lemon juice…. great side.

    Wow! I *wish* my poor little container garden looked 1/5 of as good as yours does! I am struggling to keep mine alive (although I think part of it is because our temps have been in the 50's and cloudy every day). Anyway, yours looks great – you'll have such a great selection of produce for your summer recipes!
