Mary , Mary(Ann) Quite Contrary

How does your garden grow................


I am going green.... Every year I have had some tomato and strawberry plants but this year I wanted to try to grow some more veggies . I built a small above ground bed next to my fish pond area . Josiah and I planted zucchini, squash, cucumbers, watermelons, cantaloupe, 3 types of tomatoes, and 3 types of peppers, and strawberries. I let all the kids pick out their own plants so that is why we ended up with the plants we did. We planted these about 3 weeks ago so they are allot bigger now then in the picture ( taken a wk ago). I'll take more pictures as our garden grows. The kids are so excited for their plants to get vegetables on them. So far the cherry tomatoes are winning. Our tiny Pear tree is loaded again this year ,so in another month or 2 we should be enjoying some fruit too!




These 2 pictures are from a week ago......



The last 2 pictures are from yesterday. You can see how much everything has grown already.

My poor little pear tree is already drooping from the load of all the pears.
