Our Garden

This year we planted a smaller garden in our backyard. It has come up nicely we think. We have planted: Silver Queen Corn, Squash, Tomatoes, Okra, Crowder Peas, Sweet Potatoes, String Beans, and Black-Eyed Peas.
 Here are our squash plants. They have gotten so big all of a sudden.
 The squash bloom.  Look inside, and you will see a bee.
 My two tomato plants are loaded down with tomatoes.
 Our string bean plants.
 The corn is about waist high. However, we have messed up with our okra. We planted it between the corn and squash and we think it will soon not get enough sunlight. We will see.
 Our sweet potato plants are taking off running.

Kevin has done all the work, I will say. I helped plant a few seeds, while Madalyn watched us and ate dirt. Hopefully, we can find something soon in our garden that she will like to eat better than the dirt! :0)
