This is the gourd that ate New York city! Well, maybe not New York city, but it has taken over a huge amount of my garden. See that litle tee pee trellis, I thought the gourd would grow up that, but no... The gourd is everywhere! And it has the cutest little gourds on it!Does anyone here grow hubbard squash? This is my first year and I have no idea when to harvest them. Is there a certain color?
My glads are really pretty this year, unfortunately I have to move them! They decided to come up through my rose bush, which I'm moving as well. My husband always jokes to me about me playing "musical plants" because I move them around frequently, looking for that perfect spot. Can you see the blue dolphin that jumped out of the pool to smell the glads?My Dad and I always have a friendly rivalry when it comes to growing tomatoes. We both want to be the first to have a tomato by the 4th of July. Well I picked this little tomato last night! I might be cheating just a little because it is not totally red yet, but it was lying on the ground and I was afraid it would rot. I tried to call my Dad, but he wasn't home, to rub in the fact that I have the first tomato this year!
My squash and cucumber are very prolific this year! I have picked over 2 bushels of cucumber and probably that much of squash. I am also starting to get a few green peppers and jalapeno peppers as well. Looks like some fresh salsa will be in order!
Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th!
