Week eighteen in the garden

Today might have been the best Sunday of the summer. The weather was not too hot, most of the yard work was finished yesterday, and Mommy and Daddy were both home all day so we had lots of together time, lots of snack time, and even more belly rub time than ever. As you can see our garden is doing very well.

The cucumber plant keeps spreading out and is now crawling across the little fence around the garden.

They sure are growing slowly.

I really love the colors of our lettuce. They might be the prettiest edible plants out there.

It looks like some little black bugs found the broccoli flowers before Daddy did.

We also harvested all of our beets and carrots yesterday so today we planted more beets, and carrots, and also some spinach.

These little pepper plants are finally starting to come back after Daddy almost killed them by not watering them enough during our last heat wave.

Our corn is starting to flower already so we will definitely be enjoying corn on the cob very soon.

Our cherry tomato trellis is starting to really fill out with little green balls.

Our oranges are almost full size so we hope they will start turning color soon.
