Backyard Garden: A happy surprise.

This was hiding under the green beans. Our first cucumber! I was beginning to think we weren't going to grow any cucumbers - lots of blossoms on the plants, but no fruit. I'm really hoping this won't be the only one. Regardless, we enjoyed it! So yummy. We love cucumbers!

We have more tomatoes growing. Our first round produced six or seven. We currently have ten between the two plants. We definitely need to plant several more next year since we eat five or six tomatoes each week.

Our latest harvest.

We decided to remove our zucchini plant. It has been slowly dying and not producing much...ironically after we removed it we found a couple of good zucchini. Most have been rotting on the plant before growing large enough to pick though. I was really hoping this would keep producing into the fall. I still have so much to learn about gardening.
