It’s been a while now, and I’m totally amazed at how our garden has taken off. Looking back to week one, I was so worried that nothing would grow! We have lettuce coming out of our ears, and I haven’t had to buy kale, swiss chard, or zucchini from the grocery store in the last month.
When we first planted the garden, everything had so much space. Now the lettuce and the kale are all crowding together, and the zucchini plant is out of control.
Or, to put it a little more in perspective:
We’re growing kitten sized zucchini over here.
Our tomatoes are outgrowing their wine barrels, but so far no sign of tomatoes. Lots of blossoms and tomato flowers though!
The plum trees in our backyard are full of fruit. I’ll have to start searching out recipes for jam. We have two trees that are absolutely packed with plums.
Our avocado tree even has …. something. Is this going to be an avocado?
Do you have a garden? Also, do you think that’s an avocado on our tree? I’m skeptical 🙂
