You won't believe it (and neither could my HUBBY)! The garden has erupted with vegetables, and yes, melons galore (and obviously I had too much sun). I am dumbfounded by how expeditiously these fruits of the earth expand. One day a zucchini, or a melon, look too small to pick and then WHAM! A few days later you have a "state fair" blue ribbon winner. The harvest is officially on for zucchini, melons, cucumbers, green beans and peppers, upon peppers, plus peppers. Who needs em? Come and get em! Soon to be freshly picked will the bushels of tomatoes (once the hundreds on the vine start to turn red), sweet corn and pumpkins. Next year we will be sure to give the fall "jack-o-lanterns" a little more space, currently they are "bunking" with the "jack and the cornstalks."
