Garden Update

I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation. It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green. - Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mosses from and Old Manse
Both our potatoes and beans have blooms. I am so excited!
Our squash, both the zucchini and yellow crook-neck, has blooms and baby squash coming on.
We have tomatoes coming on too. Good thing we have full time school for another week after today. I have a feeling I am going to be busy!

Hi, I feel like I sorta know you because I have been reading the Homemaking/Homesteading blog for quite some time altho not a member. I am glad to see someone else gets excited about things growing besides me! It is always amazing when I plant something and it grows. My husband recently set me up a blog to share my excitement of gardening. Would love to have you stop by for a visit. Nancy at Cozy Thyme Cottage
