Miracle Grow?

You may have already read about our raised planting beds for our vegetable garden. Here's a picture of it from the beginning of the summer.

Nicely laid out. A handsome little garden if I do say so myself.
This is about a month ago, just before we started on the path.
We laid our path between the rows. The canteloupe was expanding into the path, but in a charming sort of way.

Then we had some nice hot weather. And Bam!

Our garden today.

This is the same view from the garden path picture!

The tomatoes are literally crushing their cages and had to be braced with wood.

We have had a plentiful crop of jalapenos, some bell peppers, cucumbers, a handful of strawberries and herbs. Still waiting on those ridiculous tomatoes to ripen. 

All while watching the pumpkins slowly take over the side yard. :)

How's your harvest been?

  1. Miracle Growth indeed! We are growing our veg this year as well, although they are growing, they have not been explosive as yours. I guess it is to be expected a heat wave is about 70 degrees in this country. It looks great, I love your veg patch!

  2. You have such a lovely garden! And quite a green thumb it looks like.

  3. wow!!! i have never gardened but I am excited to pick this up as a hobby soon.


Your turn! What's on your mind?
