Week sixteen in the garden

Sixteen long weeks and we've only harvested a small basket of cherry tomatoes!What is going on around here? We've got basil on the way.Let's get with it Daddy. Mommy needs to make some marinara sauce already. Since we were still packing for our big move when we should of been sowing seeds, our garden is a little behind schedule. The San Marzano plants keep growing and growing but have yet to bear any fruit.
On the other hand, it's starting to look a lot like Thanksgiving around here. We have ripening sugar pumpkins and mini stalks of corn growing oh so well.
Speaking of things growing well, look at our romaine.It is really doing better than we ever expected. Daddy has finally redeemed himself in the lettuce growing department. It only took him a few seasons to get it right but you know what they say...better late than never.
I love how fast zucchini grows. I bet if I just stared at it all day long I would totally see it get bigger.
On the other hand, it doesn't look like the cucumbers have grown a bit since last week so we will have to wait and see how long they take to grow. Hopefully it's not too long.


  1. Our Mom is getting hungry looking at all the great pics of your vegetables. Us not so much. Although we do like carrots, applesauce, pumpkin. We like your header picture!!!

  2. Oh my goodness - that lettuce and well, everything, looks fantastic! You surely have green thumbs!

  3. I hope the tomatoes and cucumbers come soon!


  4. OMG, we can almost smell that basil right through the computer! What a heavenly smell!
    We love watching the pumpkins turn orange, Teddy!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. Sure every season gives you different experiences!
    I am sure all the veggies will grown soon!
    Kisses and hugs
