This squash came out of nowhere…I can’t believe how fast they grow!!! I’ll probably pick it by mid-week next week and have it with dinner! I noticed on Thursday that ants were swarming around the root. I sprayed them away with the hose, then sprinkled cornmeal in a line from the root away from the plant. I read on a message board that the ants would start taking the cornmeal back to the queen…it worked 🙂
My little green pepper isn’t so little any more, and a few more pepper buds have sprung up on the plant as well.
One of my tomato plants has over 20 tomatoes growing now…with more “flowers” budding every day…which means LOTS more tomotaoes! I’m already thinking about how I will use my harvest!
I’ve had so much fun watching the “big tomato plants” grow that I thought I’d also get a container tomato plant. It won’t grow as tall, and will “fall over” the sides of the container as the tomatoes grow. I’ve had this plant for less than 2 weeks and it’s already sprouted 5 little maters!
2 bunches of cherry tomatoes! Oh I can’t wait for these guys to turn red and ripen!!!
I also harvested another 2 lbs. of green beans yesterday, that we’ll eat this weekend. And there are more growing too! The spinach and lettuce “re-plants” have sprouted and a few more eggplant buds have also sprouted!
How’s your garden coming along? I love looking at your pictures and learning from you too!
