I swear if I sit still and look hard enough, I can actually see them growing! Especially the zucchini – the pics don’t do it justice, but they’re HUGE!
I planted too many things in each container this year because last year nothing really grew very well. But I have 4 or 5 cute little yellow zucchini already!
This zucchini was starting to worry me a bit, because I thought the silver on the leaves looked like mildew or something, but I googled it and much to my surprise/relief, it is supposed to look like that! YAY! Zucchini is my favorite, and its virility just makes me love it even more.
Everything else is flowering and sprouting like MAD. Here’s a sampling of the jungle madness.
Our beautiful orange cherry tomato plant is pretty much done tomatoing – we bought him sorta fully grown and got a couple dozen deliciously sweet tomatoes from a wee hanging pot.
I also got some stevia this year, and threw it in with the watermelon. Has anyone ever grown stevia? So far, I’ve eaten a couple of leaves for fun, but I’m not sure what else to do with it. I’m thinking of making some iced tea and putting it in, but other suggestions encouraged!
