2 Month Old Garden

When did all this happen? Sometime between watering, weeding and mowing the lawn the garden sprang up while I wasn't looking. Take a look at the difference between last month and this month's progress:

Tomatoes are starting to set on:
The peppers last month and this month:
And the squashies:
And the different varieties:

Early Straightneck Prolifics-yellow squash

Bennings Green Tint
or "Patty Pan"

Yellow bush
(these are supposed to have a buttery taste)

I lubs me some butter :)

Cocozelle Italian Marrow Squash

We had a huge storm pass through this last week-marble sized hail and flooding rains for almost an hour. I was so thankful our garden was spared. The only tell tale sign left is a mud line on the 7.5 tons of rock that we have our trailers sitting on. Even though we were punded with flash flood rains, the rocks remained above the flooding. So Mr. Clay's idea worked :)

Well, it's about time for me to mow that yard to join me for a sit in the shade and watch the garden grow???
Until next time...

Your garden is AMAZING! I am so glad the storm spared it. I love the picture of the "patty pan." It makes me reminiscent for my childhood when we had a small garden in our backyard. I remember going out and picking those to make for dinner. Yummmmm.

That looks amazing! I can't believe you're calling that a garden. That is a farm. A homestead. A small ranch. Congrats on all your hard work paying off!
