Good Morning! 
A few snapshots of the garden in the first light of this beautiful day!

The corn is knee high and the pumpkins have leaves bigger than both my hands together.

 It's looking like a bumper crop of zucchini.

 I have to check the beans twice a day to keep them out of the tomato cages.

 I think I will need more cucumber recipes this year, 13 of 15 sprouted.

 Broccoli, YUM!

 French Fries!

 We had the tree taken down because it was all over the roof and in the electric lines. Bonus: No more shade over this end, it should catch up to the rest of the garden in no time!

Have a beautiful, creative weekend!

Green Everywhere!

It has been storming all night and now, in between sprinkles, a quick picture of the garden. Everything shows up against the wet soil and you can see better how things are coming along with it. The corn is just above my ankle, so I think it will be "knee high by July"! I am so excited. We drove by some corn fields yesterday and they made my corn look a little wimpy, but I will persevere...LOL!
The green patch in the front corner is the Early Baby Spinach. I harvested 8 quart sized bags from that little patch. I will be tilling it under this weekend and moving a few sweet potatoes into the area.

Have a fabulous weekend!
