My Veggie Garden on July 3rd 2009

Hydrangea...this didn't bloom last year so I'm SO excited to see these gorgeous flowers forming!

The very untidy and crammed veggie patch. I did many things wrong this year, but now I know for next year. I am really enjoying watching things grow. Next year I will expand this by two or even three times it's's been a lot of fun and I think, to actually get frood from your garden is just an incredible thought. :) I am thoroughly enjoying just watching the seeds turn into these masses of's amazing.

The pumpkins are flowering, how exciting is that?! I am going to try to hand pollinate them since I sprayed them with bug spray...whoops. I didn't know the bugs were necessary for pollination! LOL* I haven't found any female flowers yet, but from what I've been reading that's, just waiting. :)

Hope those bush beans can make it a few more weeks before being completely eveloped by pumpkin vines.

I agree, homegrown always tastes best! I have containers for my garden due to the dog! I also have a planter box with our salad greens, and what a difference between store bought lettiuce and homegrown. And, I also prefer to grow from seed. I enjoyed your pictures your shared. Good luck iwth the pollenation!

Looks great! I'm in the same boat - I planted pumpkins and potatoes together . . . . I had no idea how much room those pumpkins would take. I hope the potatoes make it *s*

I've never planted pumpkins, but I am impressed with how big and gorgeous your plants are! Maybe next year!
