How Does Your Garden Grow?

This week we're starting to see more flowers on some of those crops - potato, cucumbers, squash, tomatilla, tomato, and even the leeks I forgot to pull from last year.  We're already losing a lot of lettuce, peas and broccoli due to the heat, but I have high hopes for the heat loving vegetables this year.  We've happily settled into the small window of time where the gardens are somewhat weeded and the full harvest is still yet to come in. 

We find ourselves stopping to look at a certain plant or take in the whole garden more often these days.  These are the long summer, growing days that we think about all winter and we're doing our best to soak in all that green for the months ahead.

Check out some of these great photos of other people's gardens from this week and share some of your own in the gardening flickr group.

What's growing in your garden this week?

Each Friday I share photos from our garden with an update about what we're doing, what's growing, and what we're eating.  I invite you to come play along, I love seeing what others are trying.  You can join the fun in 3 ways:
  • If you blog, I welcome you to write a post or share a post from that week about what's growing in your garden
  • If you aren't a blogger, I invite you to join my gardening flickr group and share photos of your garden from this week - I will try to grab a few photos each week to share on my post.  Please include the date, a general location and your name so I can give you the proper credit.
  • And last - if you don't want to blog or share photos, just follow along and check out all the links and photos and maybe share a comment with your own gardening experience from the week


  1. your garden is looking beautiful! I giggled when I saw the cat, our cat hangs out int he garden too (he thought the mini hoop tunnels in the spring were awesome)

  2. I'm incredibly jealous of the size of your garden, and that you have broccoli to lose. Everything looks so lovely!
