Thought I would post a couple picture of my gardens progress. Everything was planted on April 30th. So these shots are about 3 weeks after planting.

Here is a overall shot

Green Beans

Broccoli

Squash or Zucchini
Posted Image

Tomato

Another shot of the whole garden.

The straw isn't there for weed control but to help channelize the 2.5 year old who doesn't understand to watch where you are stepping. And since there is straw in the garden that means I also had a wheat crop before I started weeding yesterday.

Well Chuck, my broccoli dwarfs yours, but your tomato plants make mine look plain pitiful (which they are). We just planted squash a few days ago. No corn?

The broccoli was bought at lowes, since we didn't think to start our own. The maters are some our own starts and some purchased plants. We haven't had good luck with corn in the past, and were unsure how much time we would have for the garden. It will probably be bigger next year, and may have some corn.

We are finally getting some warmer (almost hot) weather. It was in the 80's and 90's this weekend and is supposed to be all this week. The garden seemed to really take off.

Spent some time weeding last night. Weed eater wouldn’t run good so I couldn't use my little tiller. So I had to do it all with the hoe. Hope to finish weeding tonight and then will take a few more pictures.

Should be picking a couple squash this week.

We are going to have to replant our beans. I think the crows are eating them. Is that something crows would do?

Crows love garden seeds & little sprouted plants. One year they pulled up 1/4 of a 10 acre field of corn. They pull the plant to eat the sprouted seed. Wild turkeys do it too. I'm not so fond of birds.

Now I have a reason to not like the crows as well. Will have to take action against them.
