I don’t have a picture of my garden, but it looks pretty good considering the July heat here in Oklahoma. But here is what we have picked from our garden the last few days.
My peppers and cantaloupe are doing really good. I have at least five nine cantaloupes, we picked four last night, in the fridge right now. My tomatoes are really doing well, but the cucumbers and zucchini are almost done. The tomatoes and peppers love heat, but cucumbers and zucchini do not.
I did not really want to plant the cantaloupe this year. They take a lot of room to grow and I did not think it was worth it. My husband really wanted to grow them, so we did. I am so glad, he was right, they are so worth the space they take up. Once you have had a home grown cantaloupe it is hard to eat a store bought one again.
While we are on the subject of cantaloupe, here is a neat link that I watched last summer. Meridith at Like Merchant Ships linked to it and I love the tip. It is a great tip on peeling or cutting the skin off a cantaloupe. I have been cutting them this way ever since.
