Garden Update July 6 2015 550

It’s hard to believe it’s only been two weeks since I last shared how my garden was doing. I feel like everything has gotten so big! We’ve had a bunch of really nice weather lately, so I’m sure that’s been a big part of why things are doing so well.

I picked my first radishes from the garden this week. While they could have grown for another week or so, I was itching to finally eat something that I’d grown. I think there’s quite a few more radishes that will be ready to be picked soon, so I’m looking forward to adding them to some lettuce that’s also ready for a great salad.

The zucchinis have been loving the warmer than usual temperatures we’ve had the last week and a half. They’ve doubled in size and getting pretty big. I’m very glad I left as much room as I did for them. A few nights ago we had some heavy rain, which caused one of the zucchinis to twist over. I think there was too much water on one of the leaves and it couldn’t stay upright anymore. Unfortunately this meant that one of the zucchinis that was growing on it was twisted off. I was disappointed because they take so long to grow, but there are a few other zucchinis growing, so I’m going to be getting at least a few before the summer is out. One less isn’t a big deal.

The zucchini flowers are always so cheerful!

The tomatoes have started to flower. About half of the plants now have yellow flowers on them, which means the tomatoes won’t be far behind. I planted a combination of full sized and cherry tomatoes, so before I know it I’ll be eating fresh tomatoes from the garden.

It’s exciting to see the onions and leeks up. They’re going to need all the growing time that they can get, so I’m expecting them to be in the ground up until there’s a threat of frost. While it’ll still be a couple months before I can harvest them, it’s pretty cool to see them up above ground now.

The beans have been growing like crazy lately. They must be enjoying the hot sunny weather we’ve been having lately. I can’t wait until they start flowering – the red adds a pop of color to the garden with all the green. I’m also looking forward to fresh beans again this summer.

      I’m jealous of all your strawberries! They’re tough to grow here, so I’ve given up on them.

    Your garden looks so great. I’ve been having horrible luck with my winter garden, first the horses ate half of it and now I have these demon birds from hell, just feasting away a storm at everything, they even ate my calendula :O

      Oh no! Calendulas are so pretty. We have a lot of rabbits in our neighborhood, but somehow we’ve never had a problem with them eating anything from the garden.
