There has been A LOT of growth in my garden the past 2 weeks. Just look....
This is the largest of my green tomaotes. I have about 8 more that are tiny and at least 20 more blooms. Can't wait for that first ripe tomato.
See those tiny white buds? Those are potato blooms and they are on EVERY ONE of my potato plants. That means that under the ground I have little potatoes growing, just getting bigger and bigger, waiting for me to eat them. Since potatoes were an experiment for me this year, I am particulary excited about this gardening milestone.
Here is my first head of broccoli. It looks great and so far no unwelcome critters. The sad part -- I am leaving town for about 10 days and this little beauty will be ready to eat while I am gone. My husband is not a huge broccoli fan and will probably let it rot on the plant. I think I am going to offer it to my neighbor if she will make sure my husband waters my other babies while I am gone. The good news -- the other 8 plants have teeny tiny heads just started that I will be able to enjoy after I get back from my trip.
And finally, my peas. Love that in each pod you can see the small peas starting to form. Hopefully these will be ready when my new potatoes are. Can't wait to make creamed potates and peas just like my Granny.
