This Year's Garden

Last year I had several people comment to me about the weeds in my garden.  This year, I have worked hard to keep the weeds out and make sure the plants are well fertilized.  Today I walked out to the garden, after a week from being away, just to check on the plants.  I decided to take a few pictures and post a blog since the garden looks so good.

This year our garden has two sections.  One sections is just for watermelons.  Well, I planted a few sunflowers for so the kids could watch them grow tall.  The girls wanted to make scarecrows for each garden, but I don’t think the birds are scared.  They mostly use it for a perch.  Our Garden (June 2013)

I have planted both Sugar Baby and Jubilee Watermelons.  Here is a picture on a jubilee just getting started.

The sunflowers have grown taller than I expected.  They are just beginning to start producing seeds.

The other section has peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, and onions.

This year I planted three types of tomatoes:  Beefsteak, Big Boy, and Cherry tomatoes.  This plant alone must have over 100 cherry tomatoes.

My beefsteak tomatoes are almost ready to start picking.  There are eight beefsteak plants in total.

I have planted a hybrid sweetpepper and a hybrid Jalapeño.  My sweet peppers are just getting started, but I have already begun picking the jalapeños.

This is the only cucumber so far.  It is almost ready to be picked.  Our Garden (June 2013)

I have already dug up over 50 pounds of potatoes.  I have planted more and don’t expect them to be ready for another month or so.
