They are doing really well and they all have tons of little spouts. I can't wait to get some Zucchini. I have yet to separate them and now I'm afraid of losing the blooms if I do. So I'm not sure what I will do.
These are the beans right now. I know I need to replant them soon. I just bought the dirt yesterday for that.
My lettuce. It is coming in nice. I have had a couple spots die though because leaves blow in and lay on the lettuce.
Cauliflower & Broccoli. I'm not sure what to think of these yet. I have never raised them so I'm not sure how they grow. I guess I will find out later.
For the most part my garden is now plated although I need to move the bean plants and some of the squash and cucumbers. I don't know if I will move the S & C but I definitely need to move the beans. Everything else is forever looking toward the sun and rising to there challenge of growth. lol.. anyways. They are looking really good. For the last 2 days we have been getting alot of rain and wind. I had been procrastinating on putting stakes around my tomato plants so they all blow over in the down poor yesterday. I live in a small town and ended up only being able to purchase 5 tomato cages and some small teki poles to stake them back up with. O well the job is done.
I think they look cute. These are the Cherry Tomatoes..
Here are the Big boys & the Better boys. (Tomatoes) I know they look a little droopy but they will perk back up. They went through a lot yesterday.
All of the tomato plants have tons of blooms and I don't even think they lost any yesterday when they fell over. So I can't wait for that first tomato. Although I wish I would have purchased Roma or plum tomato plant and I forgot to. Oops...

it has taken me forever to up date this blog. I have been very busy. My garden also took forever to get planted. Most of it didn't get planted till the 11th and I still have a few things to plant. I planted Big Boy Tomatoes, Better Boy tomatoes, Cherry tomatoes, Red bell papers, squash, some zuccinhi, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, blueberry's. Those are the plants that are started. I also got the urge to plant bush beans the other day. So I have just planted Green & purple Bush beans. So we will see how long it will take them to start sprouting. Here are some up dates pictures.

This the first sprouting pumpkin vine. I am very excited about the garden this summer. They Squash vines are getting tall as well. I have one 35 cucumber plants. 3 cantaloupes, 2 watermelon, some herbs, even some catnip sprouts. The garden is turning out great. But I still do not have all the organic soil and planting beds done. Actually the only one I actually made so far was to plant lettuce. So I need to really get to work on that. Its just finding the time and money to do it.
