Garden progress: June
It's really amazing how fast our garden grew in June. So far we have had two large cucumbers, an eggplant, handfuls of lemondrop cherry tomatoes, three roma Amish Paste tomatoes, and one green/yellow sweet pepper. We continue to watch everything grow daily. We have a few watermelons that are about the size of a pea and tons of Brandywines that seem like any day will turn red. It's so rewarding to eat a salad or meal that came mostly from our garden. Last week we had greens with cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers and an eggplant melt with pesto made with basil from my herb garden. It was wonderful. Pretty soon we should have green beans and hot peppers. We also planted more carrots and lettuce.
