Garden Update

I enjoyed JD's post You Are What You Eat earlier today and thought it would be fun to do my own photographic inventory of our garden.

tomatoes

This year we have two of the biggest tomato plants I've ever seen. sk mentioned she's had to hack them back several times to save room in the garden for other stuff.

cucumber

We've already had a couple of cucumbers from the garden this year, and there's a whole pile of them out there.

pepper

Haven't had good luck with bell peppers either here in Oregon or in California, but they're doing fine so far. I think this is going to be a yellow pepper.

watermelon

We've got tiny little watermelons on the vine. We haven't planted them before, so it'll be interesting to see how they do. And here's a shot of the dogs from tonight for fun.

We have a blackberry bush that's full of berries right now, but once it's done we're taking it out. The blackberries have taken over that part of the garden, killing the raspberry bush this year. And they have the most evil thorns of all the berry bushes. Next year it's all about strawberries—I'll get the bush-type berries at the farmer's market.
