After being away for the week we arrived home to find that the garden had just kept right on growing.
Here is a shot looking at the front of the garden where you can see some of the overall progress.
The tomatoes are getting ready to really come into there own. Both of the smaller paste varieties "Juliet" and "San Marzano" are starting to ripen.
And the "Sungold" cherry tomatoes are ripe and ready to eat. We ate our first ones before we even unpacked our bags.
During the week I went to colonial nursery to pick up a few things and ended up leaving with these two bell pepper plants. I don't remember the types but one is green and one is red.
I planted them where one of the beds of peas was, mixed in with the lettuce and a couple pumpkin plants.
The watermelon vines are looking long and healthy. Already lots of little blooms are visible along the length of the vines.
I also bought 2 new basil plants that I planted in the herb/ flower bed.
The Zinnias are practically exploding with color. We've already cut lots to use in the house, but there are plenty more out there.
My favorite of the zinnias is this one that has lots of tightly packed white petals.
