Our update

Remember way back in June when we planted our vegetable garden?  Here's an update to how it looks now!

Our garden!

Daddy made the tomato cages out of PVC pipes.  We didn't get the cages in until kinda late, so that is why a couple of the tomato plants never got very tall.

What we have harvested so far:
  • several cucumbers
  • 2 big tomatoes
  • a dozen-ish cherry tomatoes
  • a handful of yellow pear tomatoes
  • 2 jalapenos
  • 2 orange snack peppers

Our first cucumber!
Our peppers, a cucumber, and a few tomatoes that made it into the house.
We have a lot of green tomatoes on the plants still, so I hope that warm weather holds out until they ripen!

Little Guy has loved helping to pick things from the garden, especially the cherry tomatoes.  When we pick them, we can usually get a small handful at a time.  Little Guy has been loving this so much that the tomatoes usually don't make it into the house...he's eaten them all before we get inside! 

Our sunflower plants finally bloomed! Remember way back in May when Little Guy and I started these plants out as seeds?  They have just grown and grown, and now are taller than all of our other plants and me!

How is your garden?
