Mary, Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow? With silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row? Good for you, Mary. Mine grows like a jungle.
Matt & I finally put some cattle panel up in the garden last night. Our cucumbers were taking over our lettuce. Of course, even with the panel, the zucchini is still taking over the cucumbers. Next year we’ll give them more space.
Our zucchini is doing well, I’ve harvested 3 in the last 2 days. I’ve gotten one shredded, but the others are still on my kitchen table. We’ve got several veggies out there that will be ready in the next couple days, including some yellow squash. I’m very excited about battering and frying them. Yum!
My tomatoes are also starting to turn. Not the new ones that Matt brought home last night, they’re still much too small, but the ones we first planted are beginning to turn. I should have a couple ready in a few days. I’m hoping that the majority from the first plants will all come on at once (just not during fair week) so that it will be more convenient, canning them.
I’ve still not gotten any pie pumpkins planted, but it looks like I won’t have room for them after all. When Matt went out to Ozzy’s house yesterday evening, he come home with another row of tomatoes and a row of tobacco. That’s right, tobacco. I have no idea what we’re going to do with it, but Matt wants to grow some. It must be the Kentuckian in him.
