Despite numerous challenges that I wrote about yesterday, our garden keeps growing. Partly abundant rains and hot weather might be to blame for that, partly Stan’s vigilance about keeping the critters out of the garden so that they would not inflict any further damage on the poor little plants. Having two little helpers who like to help with weeding (well, at least so far) helps too 🙂
I promised to share some pictures of the current state of the garden. Here’s where we are about 1 month after planting, even though most all of the plants got damaged during this month in one way or the other. They are bouncing back, I think 🙂
Boys’ planter – check out those enormous pumpkin leaves on the left – Edward planted those from seeds and this is how huge they’ve gotten in the 1.5 months since.
Tomatoes are all caged up and supported finally.
Eggplants, herbs, squash and cantaloupes
More tomatoes and pepper plants. Even though pepper plants hardly got attacked by the woodchucks they are not growing as fast as they should – they are still pretty small…
Tiny tomatoes still have little raindrops on them
Happy summer squash plant has little squashes on it already 🙂 It makes me smile 🙂
Edward by his huge pumpkin plant
Herbs – rosemary, mint, parsley, and basil
Zucchini plant with baby zucchinis on it

Connor weeding in the main garden bed. He did an excellent job!
And this is where we are at this stage. As the garden grows and progresses more (God willing!) I’ll be sharing more pictures with all of you. Come back tomorrow to see some photos of my favorite summer flowers here on Simple Motherhood Blog.
