7-26-11 How Does Your Garden Grow?
Our “garden” has really taken off. I’m no green thumb, but having a few cucumber and some tomato plants just make sense – they’re yummy! Here’s this year’s big gardening lesson. Cucumbers are a vine, but I don’t think they are meant to climb a trellis. Our cucumbers that are hanging on the trellis are more yellow than green. The ones on the ground are the normal green.
It’s been good for the boys to observe the growing vegetables and to keep them watered. They like to eat them too. Max didn’t even mind the cucumber that was picked prematurely and still a little bit prickly!
