Progress in the Garden

Since Spring came to us a bit early, we already have quite a bit of progress in the gardens.  These tomatoes were 'rescued' out of the old chicken run and transplanted into the garden.  The tomatoes we started from seed are also doing well but aren't as far along as these.























































There are lots of blooms so we're hoping for a good crop again this year!

Our cucumber plants also have lots of blooms on them and are vining nicely.
























































































They're just so cute right now!

The corn is also coming along.

We can't seem to get the radishes or beets to do anything.  Country Boy gave up on the beets and the radishes are starting to flower but it's just a root and no radish *sad face*.  Also, our okra and cowpeas are not doing well either this year.  They have always grown so well in our soil with little to no effort on our part.  We don't know what the problem is this year *another sad face*.  We do have cantaloupes, green beans, herbs, green peppers, onions, potatoes and garlic that seem to be doing well so far so we can't complain!

Some rain would be greatly appreciated!  At this point, I would almost be willing to do a rain dance!  There's just something about rain water that the plants love!

Wow, I don't even like tomatoes (raw ones, anyway) but those look great! And I haven't seen a baby cucumber on the vine since i was a kid in Wisconsin. Thanks for that memory!!! :)

Wow, your garden is doing great! I wish we would have started earlier, but hopefully we'll catch up and do well.
