Growin' Groceries

Garden is coming along nicely - did a lot of weeding yesterday, and Lisa picked our second batch of collard greens!

The sweet peas are doing very well, considering they got smashed by horizontal hail a few weeks ago. This is basically all new growth:
If all those flowers become peas, I should have quite a lot of peas.

Potatoes are also coming along just fine:
I'll be thinning them out soon, and hopefully bringing some new potatoes home for dinner when I do.

Corn, sweet potatoes, okra, green beans, onions, cantaloupe, squash, and cucumbers are all doing nicely. Tomatoes are doing ok; hopefully they'll take off soon. Lettuce is still smallish - not sure it'll do much before it gets too hot. Cabbage did not do well, unfortunately, and I mis-counted rows and planted sweet peas over the top of the spinach and only got a few spinach plants to come in. The carrot seeds washed all over the place, so are scattered, but are coming up pretty well now.

Lots of fun, and I'm looking forward to greens for dinner one night this week :)
