I am growing watermelons! I can hardly believe that the tiny, struggling seedling I started back in April from little seeds are now huge and producing a bunch of tiny watermelons. I have never grown any kind of melon before and I didn't have high hopes for these. The plants were so small for so long -- then one day they went crazy. I'm ridiculously excited and check on the baby watermelons several times each day.
Tomatoes are just starting to turn red here and there. I love the bright green against the red-orange on this one. I think these are Brandywine, which I've never had much luck growing in the past. It looks like the wet Spring was just what they needed.
And we harvested the garlic! This was a new crop for us this year and I have to say it was crazy easy to grow. Pete stuck the cloves in the ground last autumn and we dug them up this past weekend -- that's it. We have laid them on a piece of fencing over the basement stairs in, what we call, our vestibule. They have plenty of air circulation, but I'm hoping it's not too hot in there. We shall see.
There is so much happening in the garden right now that I could go on and on, but I'll finish up with one last photo -- the first of many cukes is nearly ready for harvest. I think 2 cucumber plants will be more than enough to keep us in cukes for the rest of the summer. These things are prolific!
