Growing, Growing!

The farm is starting to really sprout! We can't wait until everything is ready to bring to the public. These are a few pictures of the veggies we are growing. This is a purple bell pepper!Here is a green pepper. It still amazes me how a small plant can hold up such a big pepper.
We also have jalapenos and cucumbers that are sprouting up.
This is a picture of a watermelon plant. This plant has grown over a foot since I have taken this picture (about a week)! There are lots of flowers on it but no watermelon yet. Soon they will come.
Our corn is getting really tall. Some of it is even taller than Brecken.

We also have lots of squash, zucchini, okra, tomatoes, and cantaloupe planted. They are also growing. We are hoping we will be ready to sell at the end of May, beginning of June. It is so fun and exciting to see how a plant can grow from seed to veggie with just water and sun!

I just have to tell you how much I like this blog- I think we all share a love for things that grow. Have you looked into selling to a co-op? Here is a link to one in the East Valley: http://www.bountifulbaskets.org/home.html
