Garden Photos

Since I talked about the garden yesterday, I figured I'd show y'all what it looks like.  Compare these photos to the ones I posted just two weeks ago!

I swear to you, this is NOT Adam in the Garden of Eden.  It's just Hubby standing behind the 5 foot tall tomato plants.

This is our first-born tomato.  It's getting bigger and bigger every day.  Can't wait to pluck it!

Most of the other tomatoes look like this.  There are at least a couple of dozen and many, many more flowers.

The pumpkin plants are out of control!!

Hubby actually extended the fence over into the neighboring yard.  The house has been empty since we moved here, so we didn't think anyone would mind.  The pumpkin plants were climbing the fence!

The beans don't look quite as impressive. Although,  Hubby had to put another line of string up higher so they'd have somewhere to grow.  Next year I'll put vertical strings for them to climb up.

However, the plants are deceptive.  Look at that beautiful big bean hiding under the leaves.

And we picked our first handful and had them for dinner.  Yum!

Nothing better than fresh picked string beans. Peas too!
