We worried about whether or not the garden would survive us being gone for a week. But thanks to Hurricane Alex, it got plenty of rain.
The peas are blooming!
The okra plants are getting taller.
The squash are big and beautiful.
Even the cantaloupe are beginning to spread out and perk up.
No sign of broccoli yet. Aunt Fran warned me that they may not make...if not, we will try again in the fall.
Jim and I could hardly believe how much the plants grew while we were away. He picked two tomatoes when we returned home...but they had both burst open from the rain. It looks like another will be ready for picking today or tomorrow.
We are hoping the deer stay out of the peas, but realize that the blooms are like perfume to their little noses.
Hope you come again tomorrow. I will have pictures up from our family vacation!
