So we went back and forth on whether to start the garden or not. (We were hoping to move early summer, but we are still here) So Memorial weekend we started a very late garden. The tomatoes are heavy with fruit and more coming. I can’t wait for the first ripe one, I love fresh off the plant tomato sandwiches! The yellow pear tomatoes are forming now, too.

The cucumbers are going crazy, we will have plenty to last a long while! My son loves watching how fast they are growing. And we have had to count them a number of times to appease him!
The beans are not doing so good, a bit of a bust, the beets and carrots started to come up, but then disappears, and the radish were a wonderful harvest! We have a couple of small watermelons, aren’t they cute?
And finally the great mystery! What kind of sunflower is this? Where is the flower at? When I ordered the seeds, I thought this was one of the giant towering sunflowers, but then when they arrived the package said it would be about 2-3 feet tall. Well, it is now as tall as me and every time we think it is going to give us a flower, it shoots up another 6 inches. When will it stop? No one knows!!
