Pumpkins on the vine. The pumpkin plant has decided it is going to take over the world, or at least the garden all around it. It is out of its box and spreading through the fence and up the path to the terrace.
Attempting to hang onto its little space in the same box with the pumpkin is a little chickpea plant, full of peapods about ready to pick.
I have been harvesting zucchini for several weeks, but the extreme heat wave of last week has stopped most of the blossoms from setting fruit.
However, look at the cherry tomatoes! The plant is covered with them. I found one ripe one at the bottom today, and another will be ripe in a day or two.
I did not take pictures of our big tomato plants. They are suffering from that heat wave; I think I should have watered them more. I hope they come out of their slump soon.
The corn is (nearly) as high as an elephant’s eye. It will be ready to pick very soon.
How do you you like the rubber snake artistically draped over an ear? It seems to be doing the trick of keeping the birds away.
I keep checking for bugs and such pests, but none are showing up yet. I hope we find no corn worms.
And there are baby cucumbers on the vine, just starting out. There are actually a dozen or more on this plant. My husband especially loves cucumbers, so he will be happy to have these.
