Hello? Anyone out there? I hope so, because I’ve got a lot of interesting pictures to share with you all! But first, let’s get an update on the garden.
Here’s our heirloom tomato bed at a distance. The plants on the right are the non-grafted heirlooms, and the plants on the left are the grafted heirlooms. You can sort of see the difference in health, but the picture just doesn’t do them justice.
The Master Gardeners tell me that while I was gone, they harvested about 6 or 8 melons, and that they were all really sweet and juicy. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures for you! Maybe next week.
Have a great weekend!
Things have changed drastically in the Family of 4 Garden in the last 2 weeks. The cabbage are gone (except one), the potatoes and onions are gone, the peas and lettuce are gone. We have planted seeds for squash, cucumbers, melons, and okra to take their place.

We had our first big harvest day for the spring out of the Family of 4 Garden. Lettuce, more lettuce, spinach, and radishes were all ready for a harvest.
We harvested about every other plant down to the ground, and then picked the largest leaves off of the remaining plants. The plants we cut near the base will regrow more leaves. We can cut the other plants next week. We’ll have to pull some plants next week, because we need to get the tomatoes planted in that area!
