How Does Our Garden Grow

The green beans and the cucumbers are really taking off. We even had a tiny little harvest of a handful of green beans last Friday.

I like our little garden out on the deck. You get to really see the plants grow and produce.

It is remarkable how you go from theses lovely yellow blooms

and I love the beans they produce.

They all look so fresh and tasty with the raindrops clinging to the leaves.

The tomatoes are not fairing as well. I blame the weather. We had a week of nearly 90 degree weather in early spring followed by a cold snap. The constant rain has also been a trial for my tomato plants. One looks stunted, but the other is struggling on. I give the stunted one another week or so and then I replace it with something a bit more robust.
