Week thirty in the garden

Thankfully for our melons it has been sunny and in the eighties over the last week. I just wish I could make them hurry up and grow.

Our lovely purple bell peppers. It's funny how they start out green, then turn purple, only to finish by turning red.

Daddy scattered carrot seeds a while ago and had since forgotten about them until today. There are only a few out there but they are hiding in the watermelon vines.

Yes that is the plant that won't die. It was nothing but a stump a month ago. Swiss chard has been a pretty amazing part of our garden.

Hoop houses and row covers are in our near future but the San Marzano tomatoes are going to be the first thing Daddy covers with a mini green house. We are going to keep this vine growing as long as possible.
