The Community Garden

Most of these pictures were taken by Max. The first few are not from our plot. They are simply flowers or plants that caught Max's eye. The balloon flew overhead as worked yesterday morning. We were out earlier than usual.

This morning we are being rewarded with heavy rain--no need to haul water to the thirsty corn and tomatoes today.

From our own plot there at the gardens . . .

broccoli, the first head already consumed, growing a new one.

Some of the tomatoes (most are doing well now that diseased branches have been pruned. Some varieties are still struggling with blossom end rot. The plot needs more calcium, and next year I'll look for varieties that can handle the water fluctuations that happen with hand-watering the garden better.)
San Marzano Redorta

Cherokee Purple

German Red Strawberry (a little out of focus, but you can see the strawberry shape to them)

Candy onions grown from tiny seedlings

Small purple peppers (will turn red when ripe)

Sugar baby watermelons

Pulsar Muskmelons

I also added more photos below to last night's post about the things growing in our front yard.
