Garden Update

Our garden is growing!  In fact, it seems like it's growing so much that it looks different every day!  It was especially surprising when we got back from our long weekend away and saw that small seedlings had exploded into large plants!

The Patty Pan squash are growing the fastest!  I'm excited for them to bloom and start growing yummies!

Here's another raised bed with zucchini, a couple of tomato plants and a pepper plant.

The tomatoes have grown a lot.  And, every plant has baby tomatoes!  A few of them have some yellow leaves.  We need to look it up and see what that's all about.

Here's a bunch of baby yellow pear tomatoes...

And, one of the many tiny chili peppers on our one little plant.  We need to plant some more of these!

It turned out that the gorgeous purple cabbage I posted recently wasn't edible.  The plants had gotten a bad case of aphids early on.  We treated them with Neem oil and the bugs went away.  However, when I harvested it, the heads had brown buggy stuff throughout.  I kept tearing away leaves in hopes of finding an edible head inside but the brown went all the way through.  Such a bummer!  Like I said before, gardening isn't easy!  But, we're trying to stick with it and, hopefully, get more and more successful.

How's your garden growing?

Have a wonderful weekend!

P.S.  Are any of you who use Blogger having trouble with your posts not showing up on the feed for hours or not until the next day?  I've even noticed that the feed of blogs I follow has only been showing posts from hours ago and not keeping up too.  I don't see everyone's posts until almost a day later.  I've searched settings and haven't found anything.  It seems to have started about a week or so ago.  If anyone has had this problem and has found an answer, let me know.  And, let me know even if you haven't found an answer because I'm wondering if it's a Blogger problem.  Thanks!

Gardening is not for the faint of heart!

I've noticed the same with posts on blogger not showing up for many hours. I haven't investigated further but it's not just you.

Your garden looks great.

I don't have a garden. I just go see my brother who plants a huge garden. Since I am the only one home, I don't need a lot. I am going to order me a wide brim hat from Duluth for watching the boys ride and ballgames. Hope all is well with you. Take care Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend Shirley.

Your garden looks great! Mine is coming along. The plants are still small, but producing fruit. It's the craziest thing.

I've also been having that same blogger problem. I don't even know where to look for an answer. Hopefully, someone in Blogger HQ's will notice and get it fixed.

You guys finally have the garden thing down-good for you!
I haven't noticed any delay in posting or in my Feedly reads.
Sorry you are having trouble!

I love this time of year when mother nature rewards us for all our hard work. We are still experimenting but enjoying the process.

I have heard of those issues on Blogger but have not been here enough lately to see if I am having them. Love your beautiful garden.

I thought mine was doing OK until you showed us those! Very jealous. Keep up the watering. Jo x
