Top 3 Finds: August 2 ~ August 6
by Bonnie Tate
My garden came to life this week, so my top three (four!) finds were right in my backyard. It's my first try so I'm pretty excited that anything is growing. Here are my top finds:
The first ripe tomato! I was thrilled to see a glimpse of red at the very bottom of the plant, hidden in dense leaves. This tomato is going on my burger tonight.
The beginning of some squash. After a rough start (a mystery creature pulling up the plants) we have five hearty squash plants.
And broccoli! Also saved by a net that keeps out birds, rabbits, raccoons, bear, and cougar (okay, we've only had to worry about the first three).
Carrots. We'll be waiting until fall for these carrots, but they sure are cute right now.
Do you have a garden? Any tips for a beginner?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
