July Update

Like I said, before, I'm such a novice when it comes to gardening. This being the second year I know a little more than last year, but I've got alot of learning to do. My squash is doing well, I've been picking some. The picture above shows one I didn't see until it got huge and now I don't know if I'll be able to use it. Maybe I can shred it for soup. The cucumbers are doing great, I've been able to pick some and there is so many flowering and growing out of the beds. Only a small amount of pea pods flourished, but the ones that did, tasted so good that I picked them right off the vine and ate them. Next year I will be planting alot of these.
The beets didn't grow well at all, and my peppers are small. I've been picking strawberries almost everyday, and there are alot of tomatoes. I'm excited to dig up the potatoes when they are ready as the plants are growing well. In September I'll start spinach, again, for the fall. It did well for the small container it was in. Tonight Chuck is going to figure out a new watering system as the garden is getting too much water.
This garden project makes me have alot of respect for the farmer, it's harder than it looks and I would hate for my family to have to rely on me for all their food!!
