Back to the Garden

Photo 2

After almost two weeks, I made it back to our garden plot.  Everyone's gardens have grown so much while we were away.  The tomato plants in particular have exploded.

There was some more broccoli to harvest, which I gave to my friend Niki who came with me.  The red cabbage is looking quite nice, so I need to do some research to see if it is time to harvest it or not.  No Brussels sprouts yet, though something is enjoying make wholes in the leaves.

I took a few more chives and scallions and some more fresh dill.

The tomato plants have grown mightily, especially the roma plant, which is laden with green tomatos at the moment.

The cucumbers had not grown as I expected, and they've also sent shoots all over the garden, rather than climbing the trellis they are planted next to.  I only saw two baby cukes.

The eggplant was flowering.

The squash and zucchini plants are huge and there are many baby veggies growing.  I had thought I'd get to harvest some yesterday, as there were babies growing when we left.  I'm wondering if one of our garden mates harvested any, which is fine, since we were gone (it's what I wanted them to do).  But in a few more days or a week or two we'll be bursting with zucchini and squash.
