Garden Update

We've had such a dry spell over the last week.  Perfect weather for playing outside, hitting the beach and hosting some 6 year old birthday parties for my twins, but it's been a bit of a scramble to keep all the plants watered.  We've lost a lot of our first year strawberry plants and a few things here and there, but things are still growing and a few things seem to have thrived in this warm weather.

The tomatoes have reached that stage where they seem to be growing by the minute.  My mother (who is responsible for the best looking garden in the photos below) started WAY TOO MANY tomatoes.  It seemed so wrong to get rid of them, so there are tomato plants tucked in every corner of the garden - I don't have an exact count, but I'm thinking we have between 70-100 tomato plants out there.  Thank goodness some of the strawberry plants dies and left room for tomatoes!

We're all enjoying finding more time to sneak out the garden to harvest the lettuce, radishes, peas, etc that are popping up each day. 

How's your garden growing?

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 2 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
  • 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 making my mouth water! Living vicariously through you, as our garden is mostly put to sleep in summertime. Enjoy it all!

  2. I was going to say, is there such a thing as way to many tomatoes but 70-100, that might be pushing it. ;-)
