The garden is growing…

What a difference two weeks makes! I love watching my plants grow – it’s nice to look back at pictures of what it looked like a few weeks ago.

The left shows my garden on June 24th, and the right is my garden today, 7/12/15.

My plants are doing really well in the garden.

Here is my corn. The older batch, shown here, is just over a foot tall now.  I have some on the other side of the garden that I planted 2 weeks later, when I noticed that the original seeds I tried to plant didn't take.  Those are about 6 inches or so now.

Here are my brandywine and beefsteak tomatoes.

Here are my black krim tomatoes.  I have not tried these, they are supposed to be an almost black / purple tomato that tastes really good.

A sunflower that somehow ended up in the corn rows.  I don't care, I love sunflowers. I must have dropped a seed while walking in the garden.

A mystery squash.  Could be a zucchini, yellow squash, or acorn. I'm not sure yet. I lost track of where they were planted with my efforts of re-seeding in empty spots when seedlings died.

A calendula plant - it's forming a flower. I'm excited, I haven't grown these before.

My beans are doing really well, and are starting to climb the strings I put in to support them.

Here is one of the pansies I put in amongst the vegetables.  This one has really pretty coloring.

I really enjoy seeing my plants get bigger.  Thanks for taking a look.
