Tuesday Garden Update ~ July 12th

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! I've got some great pictures of our garden to share, including tomatoes, peppers, acorn squash, and more!

First, the amazing growth in our acorn squash plants. Remember last week? Well check out how much these have grown! Not to mention all the squash that have set! We've been hand pollinating these, just to be sure.

There are a LOT of squash forming on these plants. We're very excited about how this plant is doing this year. (Notice the mark on the one stem.. that means that we've already hand pollinated that one).

The tomatoes are coming along... none ready to harvest yet, but getting there day by day.

The cucumbers have reached the tops of their cages. I guess we'll just let them flop over the tops, we're out of trellising material! Lots of cucumbers forming. I'm not going to hand pollinate these... we had no problem with production of these lemon cucumbers last year -- I'm hoping for the same this year.

Lots of flowers on the peppers now!

Our "volunteer" potatoes have started to flower. Planning what we'll plant here when these are all done not long from now!

My hubby planted some snow peas.. and they are already coming up. These will use the last trellis that we have.

The eggplants are growing slowly....

You can't even tell I've harvested this parsley twice.

A frequent visitor to our garden -- a dark eyed junco.

Here's a pretty Calla that grew near the hose... we'll have to move it but for now it's an unexpected beauty.

How is your garden doing this week?
