I really should have been updating a little more often. But I’ve been super busy. I have, however, been completely fascinated with the entire process of growing food. I mean, it just grows out of the ground, not out of wooden crates at your local supermarket.
As I’ve stated before, I have zero green thumb. My mother grew up on a farm in Texas, went to college and never looked back. (In terms of farming). My dad, spent a few summers on a farm. So these people had NOTHING to offer. 🙂 I had to use books and the net. I think my plants suffered a bit, b/c I never knew what could go wrong until it did. My poor plants had no, as many of our citizens, preventative care.

My sweet corn doesn't seem to be producing silk
The flowers open and die on pumpkin plants
flower from pumpkin plant
this pumpkin stem does not look good
The watermelon plant seems to be doing OK
Tiny baby watermelon. I talk to it sometimes
I guess it’s going to be a waiting game for these little guys. My cucumbers, however, have been doing great. I picked my first one today. Go Farmer Me. Living off the fat of the land, baby!
That is the first cucumber I picked
Cucumber Baby Daddy
yummy with vinegar and pepper
I tell ya’ll what. Everyone should taste a fresh cucumber from an organic garden.
