What’s In Season: Our Family Garden is Growing

This year, we decided on having a bigger family garden to grow our own foods. I took a couple of pictures of the garden this morning. This is our first attempt at growing melons. We planted a couple of different varieties and they seem to finally take off. Can you see the cute tiny melon?

Last month, the deer decided to stop by for either a late dinner or early morning breakfast and ate away at our pumpkins, tomato and pepper plants. We were able to rescue them, but I’m not sure how well they will produce. I’m hoping for at least two pumpkins for the kids come October. The cucumber and tomatillos seem to be doing awesome!

We’ve had some peppers already from the garden, but the rest is slowly growing. Everything is still alive and green with yellow flowers.  I’m hoping to see some results. We’ll see.

How’s your garden growing?
