Garden update!

My garden is huge. My squash is out of control. Apparently the shade wasn’t a negative. Remember what it looked like around a month ago? You can click “here” if you missed my garden post.

Remember when I thought this outfit looked much cuter than it really did?

My garden two weeks ago…..


I’m an official gardener!!!!!

Can you believe it has grown that much in a month!

It is not too late to start your garden!

Have you gotten one started? Even if you just do it in pots!

I just recently saw this on Pinterest and can’t wait to try it at the end of the season.

Did you see this “extend your garden life” pin on Pinterest? All it takes is $10.00 and ten minutes!

I pinned it on my Pinterest page. If you are not already following me on Pinterest I would love it if you would!

Can you believe my garden? I was so worried about it’s placement! Remember how I put it in the shade? On accident!!!!!

It worked!

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

    Wow!!!! You’ve got a great garden!!! I just love fresh green beans and cucumbers!!! Ooohhh, and I see the makings for salsa!!! Always the sign of a smart gardener!! 🙂

    I’d take out at least half of the vines out and makes a ton of shade with those huge leaves. Plus, it’ll turn you into that friend and neighbor that leaves squash on doorsteps in the middle of the night to get rid of it!!! 😉 I’ve been there, my friend….I’ve been there!!!

    I love the garden. Every year, I say, “Next year, I will do this.” And I haven’t had a garden yet. So, once again, next year I will do this! You have done a great job with it. Jill

    My husband’s squash is doing the same thing! He is picking about a 5 gal. bucket a day and it just started producing this week!! Did you know that you can let your cucumbers grow up on tomato cages or a fence, they make great that way.

    I noticed quite a few squash (zucchini?) flowers peeking from under the “jungle.” If you have some tempura mix handy, you might want to think about picking a few. Stuff ’em with a little mozzarella, maybe a bit of anchovy or prosciutto, do a quick dunk in the tempura and then off to the frying pan. YUM!

    Amazing. Don’t see plants like those here till mid-late summer. The recommendation is not to put anything “tender” in the ground till after Mother’s Day. I drove by greenhouses today selling plants that aren’t nearly the size of yours. We’re not just on different sides of the Mason/Dixon line we might as well be on different sides of the world! I’d love to be a neighbor you shared with, hehe.

    6 squash plants!? I had one yellow squash plant last year and 2 zucchini plants. I LOVE them, but I ate it and ate it and ate it and my freezer is STILL full of zucchini. This year I have one of each for our family of seven and I think it will be more than sufficient. I STILL have to get my tomato plants in the ground and my potatoes planted. Yesterday I built a planter box for my deck herb garden. I just love this time of year!

    Wow! I wish my garden looked like that. We’re at the base of the Sierra mountains in Northern Nevada and we just had freezing temps and snow here on Friday. Yes, the day before yesterday! Your garden looks amazing! Thanks for the link, I’m now following you on Pinterest!
