Evidence of a somewhat growing garden

Ok, I was able to figure out my camera situation, thanks to my good friend Amanda!  The first photo is of a pole bean flower growing and the second is my cucumber that’s growing like crazy.

Actual growing cucumber

Woo hoo! I can’t wait to start harvesting stuff.  I know the cukes will be the first and hopefully the pole beans will come quickly after.  I’ve been reading up a bunch about squash since I only seem to be growing male blossoms.  The general consensus is that male blossoms usually grow first and if they’re plentiful, that’s good cause it means there’s a lot more chances for pollination.  The females will grow soon.  It make take a while, but it’ll happen.  I also finally got my turnip seeds from Sprout Robot.  So crazy how they look.  They’re like little poppy seeds!

Also, I’m heading back to the New Amsterdam Market on Sunday.  Can’t wait!  I have to get some some of the same stuff as last time and more!  No picnic this time around.  We’re heading back up to my friend’s place and cooking a feast for a few of us.  I hope the weather holds out!

  1. Nice website!!

  2. I have been reading your articles during my lunch break, and I have to admit the whole article has been very valuable and very well written. I thought I would let you know that for some reason this blog does not view well in Internet Explorer 8. I wish Microsoft would stop changing their software.
