Garden Update

Princess's zucchini has taken over.  I'm thinking we need LOTS of recipes... if you have a good one, let me know.
Rosebud's corn is ready for pollination.  Did you know that when you only have a small amount of corn that pollination is done by hand?  I'm thinking that is something she will need to take care of this weekend.  Her watermelon looks good also but it has some strange looking bug that needs to be investigated and eliminated... another project for the weekend.
Stinkbug's plot has some good looking corn too but it is not ready for pollination.  And you almost can't see his corn because of his potato plants... what is up with those things???  The tomato plants he began from seed are almost as big as the ones we bought.  He is quite attentive to his plot and it shows.
And of course, we can't forget Sugarcake.  The big monster of a thing in her plot is pumpkin... that's A (singular) pumpkin plant.  I didn't use a wide angle but it is over on the right side about 3 or 4 feet and over on the left side 1 or 2 feet.  All she wants from it is pumpkin pie, but I'm thinking we may have to start selling them... lol... she's been trying to figure out a way to make money...

I can't believe it has been almost a month since my last garden update... what a difference a few weeks makes!

In love and recovery,
ThereO

The garden looks great!

I think in a few days, we'll have our first zucchini that is big enough to pick. I think we'll sautee it as a dinner sidedish! Yum!
