Our garden has been growing like crazy. We had two and half weeks of sunny weather which caused things to just take off.
The cosmos have outstripped the sunflower (in the foreground).
Tomatoes are coming along and I've picked my first ripe ones this week.
We planted a butterfly garden which we hope will fill in by next summer.
Sad, sad cabbage plant. Look to the left to see how we've covered up our other cabbage plant.
And low and behold this is what our protected cabbage plant looks like.
Side by side!
I am blaming this on a certain fat squirrel I see around.
Our watermelon is coming along. I choose a variety that is suppose to do well in cooler coastal areas.
Here is my bed of honeydew melons. They are a bit stunted as they have also been a tasty meal for a certain fat squirrel.
My cucumbers have really taken off.
This is our first cucumber of the season. I ate it right then and there. It was super yummy.
My bush beans are loaded with beans. Note to self--next year I need to double the amount of bush beans.
My runner beans have been pretty, but a bit unproductive!
I think we need a bit more heat.
The coolest thing by far in the garden was this moth. I'm not sure what kind it is? Anyone have any ideas?
How is your garden growing?
