Monday PhotoEssay

We got so busy setting up for Tomato Day that I didn’t get a PhotoEssay up! Here are some of the pictures from last week.

The garden still looks great from a distance. There’s a benefit to not always getting too close to things!

These two melons are growing in the “Yellow Mini Tiger” area. That means that one of them is the pollinator and one is the “eater” melon. Hmm…Any guesses?

One of my coworkers reported seeing a thief in the garden this week, and he followed them and snapped this picture of the crime with his phone. I guess everyone had a happy Tomato Day!

The first of the ‘Limmony’ tomatoes started ripening just in time for Tomato Day!

I get the sense that while we may have semi-outsmarted the squash vine borers, the onslaught of squash bugs is just about ready to begin. Ugh. On so many different levels.

Here’s a nice honeydew melon that is growing on the vine. It’s nowhere close to ready, but it looks really nice!

This is one of the Teddy Bear sunflowers in the Kids’ Snack Garden. They just started blooming this week. They are definitely a fun twist on sunflowers.
