This is Ruby Queen corn, which is likely why the tassels are so amazingly colored - they look like something from a Dr. Seus book, i think!
And there are cucumbers that I bet I'll be able to pick this weekend! (and a couple tomatoes too!!! I can't wait for that first one!)
It's just amazing how big everything looks compared to the last post!
I made a fence for my french melons - they're climbing it! when a melon start, I'm going to make a little sling for it and hang the sling on the fence to support it. in the foreground there you can see the watermelon plants. Yes. I said "plants" - plural. i'm nuts! well first I planted some heirlooms watermelon seeds and thought they just weren't going to germinate, so then i got a couple plants on impulse - THEN the original seeds germinated! i couldn't pull those out! any sane person would put in ONE plant. i probably have 6. My garden will turn into watermelon city, i know. oh well!
i had the same germination thing happen with cucumbers. bought plants...then the seeds started. so I'll also have waaay more cucumbers than i can handle! that's ok - i love cucumber salad and when I'm floating in them, i give some to the neighbors and take some to work. The same will be happening with my patty pan squash, I'm sure - they're starting to form too!
Borris loves to help out in the garden too - basically just by rolling in the dirt and getting filthy.
