It was less than a week! July 5, 2011

Posted by Barbara in Gardening.

We went on a trip to visit the folks and have some play-time in Austin this past week/end.  6 days.  I promise.

Garden – July 5

The morning before we left, we harvested everything – took a good bit with us to share on the trip.  All this grew in the week we were gone.

The pictures don’t do these things justice.  The larger zucchini are 18 inches long and the watermelon is about 15 lbs.  I’m wondering what one does with squash that big.  Stuffed zucchini boats, maybe.  One would feed the entire crew of the ship it matches.

Sunflowers grew more than a foot and have blooms now –  at least 6 ft tall already.

But I love having lots to share. It was a good plan.
