Garden Galore?

Oh, Wow! It has been a while since I posted last. I thought I’d take a moment to give you a quick update on the garden progress.

We have fruit! If my count is correct, I have about 20 yellow squash that, hopefully, will be ready to harvest in the next month or so. There is also about 15 zucchini squash. I also have several blossoms on the different tomato plants that I have planted. I am really excited about the 100 sweet hybrid tomatoes that are blooming.

I am hoping the luffa produces, at least a couple of fruit. I would like to have the cucamelon produces something but I am afraid that it is too small for that. There is still about a month and a half before the predicted first frost of the season so there is still some hope.

What I am most excited about is the Golden Midget Melons that I have growing! They aren’t very big, biggest is about 1/4 inch, if that. There are two of them so far and I am so hoping that they will get big enough to harvest!

Yesterday I harvested a couple of small radishes! They weren’t very big but they had a delicious radish flavor! The Swiss Chard is also doing wonderfully well, if the bugs would leave them alone.

Now, if only the chickens would start laying, if would be in heaven. They are between 20-25 weeks so they should be laying soon.

Well, here’s to hoping the garden and chicken start producing before to long!

I am an up-and-coming homesteader that, currently, is working 40 hours a week at a call center. I live in the desert southwest, which makes gardening a bit of a challenge. I am excited to see where my journey takes me!
