compare these two photos:
This is the same watermelon, one week apart. Amazing! ( I suppose its not really amazing, as everyone's watermelons do the same thing but still...)
Now to have enough patience to let it fully ripen. One year, I was in such a huge hurry to pick a watermelon that it wasn't ripe and tasted terrible.
A few of the cabbage plants are doing quite well:
While others are NOT doing so well. I'm sure its a different type of cabbage, but apparently its very tasty to cabbage loopers and other bugs. Take a look:
Can you see all those holes? And there isn't a cabbage head in there at all. I'm just viewing this as free food for the bugs.
And then there is this plant, which I think is a cantaloupe, but there is no fruit on it. Not even little tiny ones with blooms attached. All just male flowers. But the plant itself is going crazy!
Its been a really good year to have a garden, weather-wise. Last year the weather was very cold and rainy but this summer has been ideal! Very hot and sunny!
Here's what I brought home from the garden today:
Yes, that's a handful of beans but next week, there'll be more than I can deal with. Better get the canner ready!
