Garden Update

My sweet husband surprised me for Mother's Day with my very own garden. It has been very rewarding and a great teaching experience for Skylar. Here are some pictures to catch you up on where we are today.

DAY 15
DAY 22
DAY 31 - We have summer squash!
Day 36
DAY 37 - We have a baby watermelon! It was about the size of a dime.
4 days later it was the size of a golf ball!!

DAY 43 - Our first harvest :)
DAY 45 - today
Our 1st watermelon at 8 days old. It is the size of a  baseball.
We had a windstorm come in a few days after we planted our seeds. It kicked up the dirt enough to blow our bell pepper seeds into our carrots. We now have hybrid spicy carrots. lol

We currently have 6+ summer squash, 2 pumpkins, 7 watermelons and 1 cantaloupe. We are a few months away from being able to harvest the  carrots, onions, corn, bell peppers and broccoli. Unfortunately the broccoli was chewed up by grasshoppers so we aren't sure if they will produce anything. Overall this has been a great experience and we cannot wait to eat our homegrown goodies!
