Here's what's grow'n!
Apples are starting to appear!BasilThese are the pole beans. To the left are the potatoes, to the right are some cucumber plants, corn and sunflowers
Butternut SquashCabbage Carrots Corn- does NOT look like it is going to be "knee high by the forth of July"! We had sun for about 2 days and you could seriously see it growing! It grew over an inch in those 2 days...but clouds again today... (Raspberries in background)
More lettuce (and some weeds!)Peas- we have eaten about a handful of these, it is crazy how late they are this year... we need SUN!
Remember the branch trelises I made!? here they are with the peas growing all over them. I planted the peas in staggered time frames so they wouldn't all be ready at once, so some are further along than others.
Potatoes galore! We eat a lot of potatoes! There are a couple brocolli plants in there which are doing AMAZING! I read that they are good "companion plants"... this proves it for me! Also, with potatoes, you can keep mounding over the plants and burry them until about 1/3 is above ground, they will keep growing and you'll get tons more potatoes for your space. Mine are due to be mounded...
I put a lot of these plants in these containers mainly because I didn't lable them when I planted the seeds and I am not completely sure which are tomatoes and which are peppers! I am just now being able to tell the difference, so they will find a home in the garden plot soon.

Well, there you have it! Everything grown from seed (other than the berries).
