I thought some people might enjoy seeing the way the garden is growing. Thanks to all who gave gardening suggestions, I can use all of them!
I am slowly recovering and enjoying the brief days of gorgeous temperatures and humidity before the heat returns this weekend. My Martha side wants to clean, clean, clean... my Mary side reminds me I just came through a serious illness. Mary is winning most days. :)
The tomato plants look like they are going to grow as high as trees!
This picture (above) is what the baby watermelon plant looks like now. I was wondering if it would grow since this part of the garden gets a little shade... I'd say it looks just fine.
I've said before that this garden all started with just a conversation between my husband and I as we talked about researching a raised bed garden. It is one of the best yes-es we have ever decided to go through with. Our property is not perfect for a garden, being at the edge of a forest... but we found one area that gets some good sunshine.
