It’s early June, and it’s when our vegetable garden really starts to do some serious growing. We’re getting blooms on our tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants, and the squash is noticeably larger from update to update. We’ve had much more sunshine lately, and that has helped tremendously. As well as the vegetables, the flowers are also starting to grow more noticeably. We have lots of sunflowers scattered here and there, and a whole row of Zinnias. The corn is getting much taller, and the late corn seeds that I planted are starting to come up. It’s a fun time of year for a gardener.
Let us all know how your garden is doing. We really would like to hear about it!
