Good news first, or bad news first?!
Let’s go with good news first.
Things are growing. (I always fear that nothing will grow!)
The squash plants are all beginning to flower and I don’t doubt that we’ll have squash and zucchini coming off soon.
Each of the tomato plants has quite a few new stems with tomatoes forming. The first one is getting to be quite large and I’m hoping to see some red soon.
And my hot peppers are starting to produce too…looking forward to some pico de gallo and hot salsa!!!
(I have no idea what happened to that picture?!?)
And now for the bad news….
This is one of my poor little green pepper plants…all the leaves and branches munched off by the resident chipmunk. That little critter is waring on my nerves!!!
Yes…that is a green pepper growing upside down. Confusing, I know.
In other bad news…I pulled up the mustard greens and arugula…as they just didn’t make it. I’m *thinking* the HEAT that we had in May was not so great for their growth?! That coupled with the fact that I got the seeds into the ground so late…poor things didn’t have a chance!
We have been eating side salads from the garden lettuce and some of the stems are starting to produce more nice Bibb leaves…so more salad for us!
I think that about raps it up…just waiting for more growth and to start harvesting more!
