Finally! Three summers later - a very large zucchini for stuffing! The past two summers my friend, Lara, and I had a very iron clad system. I would cry about how inadequate my zucchini were for stuffing and she would bring giganormous zucchini with the unspoken understanding that I would stuff them and share. Well, now it appears that I can grow them successfully in the front! Lara, if you are reading this...do not panic! I will continue to make you stuffed zucchini and I will even give you the recipe so you can make them as well. Drum roll please......
This block is approximately 12x12. The zucchini and sqush were featured in the previous blog. They grew this big in a week!
The living fence has also grown quite a bit within the week. It appears that the east side is growing at a faster pace than the west side. I am pretty certain that is a result of sun exposure. I planted a variety of tomatoes called banana legs. They are really odd, and the tomato bush grows low to the ground. I don't think I am loving them. I will have to post pictures of them next time.
I love the way the tendrils of the green beans twist around the concrete mesh on the fence.
Cucumbers, so many cucumbers!
As predicted...the sunflowers are going to be huge!
Corn. The first year I grew corn my daughter freaked out. She was convinced that something horrible would occur. Way too many horror flicks! This year I planted Martian Jewel corn...hehehe...maybe I will wake-up to a mini crop circle.
I'm loving this combination.
