Bountiful: For Bear

Mom wanted me to email my sister pictures of our garden, I figured I do it in a blog instead.

Our garden is doing great!!! We have harvested some squash, tomatoes, a potato, beets, radishes, spinach, swiss chard and lettuce. The cucumbers and watermelon are coming along slowly, but they're doing better than I originally thought. The corn is tall and starting to flower. The beans have been flowering a lot and we have a few small baby beans, can't wait for them to grow up. We have peppers, both sweet and hot, they're not quite ready to pick but they're doing well. The eggplants look good, but there have been no flowers or anything on them yet. The carrots are still coming along, we've eaten some baby ones that we picked while thinning them out the other day, they were tasty, but they still need a bit of time to get to a good size. The broccoli and cauliflower look like they're doing well, no flowers yet though. I'm so excited that the garden seems to be doing so well, I haven't had a real garden since I was a kid. I've really been enjoying it.

Wow! Your garden is beautiful and I'm impressed by how much stuff you're growing. I had hoped to learn how to garden while here, but I guess I'll have to come visit you guys to get a lesson :) Thanks for putting this up!
