Garden Update

I'm afraid our garden is not going to win any awards this year. Remember how small it looked in the beginning? And how big it grew over just one month?


Squash: dead
Corn: dead, but still stands simply to mock us.

Okra: Thriving, we're are picking several okra each day, cutting them up, and sticking them in the freezer for the day when Brandon decides he is going to fry and eat them.

Mysterious small plant next to okra: Still alive, still can't remember what we planted there.
Children: driving me crazy just a little bit.

If anyone has any ideas on what those two mystery plants are that we have managed to not kill yet, please advise. Peppers? Lima beans?

Yep, the first one looks like peppers. Peppers that are too healthy and are being given too much water and, hence, not producing peppers. They like it hot, so don't be too nice to 'em. And some sort of beans. If you planted limas, then that's what they are. The little white flowers will be turning into pods soon! Corn is tedious. I like cutting down the stalks and using them for crafts--braiding, wreaths, scarecrows, etc.
