The weeds are still trying to take over my garden and every day I promise myself that when it cools off in the evening I'm going to go start taking back my vegetables. But every evening for the last week it's either been really hot or we had rain. Today has been a little cooler so maybe this will be the day I make it out there and begin the rescue.
But the plants are doing very well in spite of the neglect.
The corn is growing like crazy.
I thought when I planted the vines (cucumbers, cantaloupe and watermelon) that I was leaving a lot of space between each plant but apparently not enough - I keep finding watermelons in the cantaloupe and cucumber plants. I'm picking cucumbers everyday now, 4-8 at a time. So I've been on the hunt for cucumber recipes. Two I've made recently and we've enjoyed are Marinated Cucumbers and Creamy Cucumber Salad.
The tomato plants are so full of tomatoes that I'm afraid if they don't ripen soon the plants are going to start breaking.
The peppers are getting big as well.
There are four pepper plants and eight tomato plants so I'm looking forward to eating lots of fresh veggies (besides cucumbers) soon.
