The garden is really taking off. Our weather has been cooler than I think tomatoes like because I hardly have any so far. This is very unusual for me. Maybe something else is going on not sure. Lots of blossoms but not many maters set yet.
My husband took this little chicken that broke off of a pate knife and stuck it on some rusty metal.
Those are pumpkin vines going like mad. They love my composted chicken manure.
In this planter I have a couple tomato plants and pumpkins winding through the flowers. I just plant it full and let it all grow like mad. I love the fullness. In fall I just rip it all out down to the perennials. This is how I extend my gardening space.
I really need to get in the garden and take out the last of the kale and Swiss chard. I will plant new chard soon. Some ladies were walking by and commented on the kale and how they love it in their soup. I cut them a bunch to take home. People always like to see what I have growing. I am noticing more veggies gardens popping up in front yards.
My celery is going to seed. I am slowly pulling it out. I planted the little potted mums last fall that I bought to tuck in my fall porch. They are about to explode with blooms. Green beans and peppers are starting to take off and I am picking yellow squash but somehow managed to not get a zucchini in. I will buy a plant from the nursery this week.
Here is the first of the pumpkins forming. I planted some of the blue cinderellas this year. I sure hope I get a few. Not sure what variety this is. We will find out. So how is your garden doing so far. I really want some tomatoes soon. I may put some in a few big pots I have to start a few more plants.
