Baby fruits and veggies
Rain, rain and more rain.... five minutes of sun... rain, clouds, thunder & lightning... I finally decided the best thing to do was to take some pics of my wet veggies and fruit.
Other than a couple of tomatoes in a pot, this is the first year that I've planted veggies in -- oh my goodness -- 15 years! I have tomatoes, red peppers, patty pan and yellow squash, okra, cucumbers and one bean plant. Those that were planted in large pots are doing very well -- good soil, good drainage, and decent sun since they were portable. Those planted in the ground are inconsistent. We've had a LOT of rain so some have stayed a little wet where the ground is jus saturated. It hasn't been very hot yet. And the amount of sun they get isn't the best, even though I did limb some trees to provide a little more. The other interesting thing is that they are here and there in the yard, squeezed in where there was room and/or sun. I'm considering making a large raised plot in a section of yard near the figs for next year... keep it all in the same area.
Anyway, baby veggies!

Squash flowers are so pretty. We planted golden zuchinni this year. All of your fruits and veggies look yummy.
Let's hope you get that much need sunshine soon Daisy so that all those babies can grow up ready for tasting.
You have some very tasty looking babies there. I'm trying patty pan this year for the first time. Do you have a special recipe for them?
Gardengater, I love the flavor of them so much, my favorite way to make them is just steamed and sliced with salt and butter! Or I throw them on the grill ...with salt and butter. I've never grown them either, but when I buy them, the tiny ones are especially delicious.
I picked my first zucchini tonight. I have zucchini, yellow, grey and a mixed up variety that came from Mayer. Your squash plants look very big and healthy. I hope you get lots of vegetables from your plants. dooley
Wow, you have a pretty good collection of veggies.
