I really cannot stand the hot humid weather. There's only one good thing that comes out of it - great growing in the garden. We haven't had much of the heat (as opposed to so many in the country this summer) but it comes in spurts and the garden loves it. Would you like to see?
Zucchini flowers. There has been plenty of them. I'm not sure why I don't have a picture of them. Especially the 17" one we picked last week.
Gourds. Ha ha - my husband still doesn't understand why I had to plant them if we can't eat them. Well, I guess you could but I'm not sure how they would taste.
Those little hot peppers. Hubbys deal - have no idea which ones they are. Habenero perhaps? They are hot as... well, you know.
Lettuce! I'm really excited about this one because I just threw the seed in the planters and hoped it would grow. And it did.
The cucumbers and the tomatoes are coming up too. Considering we haven't been very diligent in gardening this year, we are having a great harvest. I can't imagine what it would be like if we really had the time to take good care of it.
So for any of you who have never planted much of a garden and think you can't do it because you don't have a green thumb, trust me - it can be done. And the food you get in return is so very worth it.
