Even though our big garden is basically a mud pit-the smaller beds around our house aren't doing too bad. It looks like we'll have a bumper crop of cucumbers-they're just starting to come in as are the zucchini and squash. I'm planning on making a few runs of 14 Day Pickles-anyone want to have a pickle along here on the Blind Pig where we can make them together?
Our watermelon patch is the prettiest we've ever had-I don't know that it'll produce watermelons-but it sure is lush and vibrant this year. I moved my watermelons to a different part of the garden-I'm not sure if they look so good because of the new location or all the rain we've had. Chitter helped me plant them-and she says she's going to talk to them every day like she did last year so we'll grow lots of watermelons. Hmmm I wonder if she's been keeping up with her watermelon conversations.
We've had such good luck with our tomatoes the last few years, and it looks like we're going to have a bumper crop this year as well. I swear some of them are as tall as I am. The ones above are the Mountain Princess variety from Sow True Seed-and have proved to be unbelievable producers.
So even though I'm worried about the corn and beans drowning in the flood zone of the big garden-there is still much to be thankful for!
