It was a hot weekend but as you can see my vegetables are doing just great. Of course, I water them daily just enough to keep them upright and it seems to be paying off. My cucumbers are doing great and they have a bunch of little cukes growing on them. As you can see below they are climbing the wire fencing I put up for them and seem to be enjoying the extra height to tower over my okra and peppers.
Below is one of my watermelon plants. They are also doing great and the kids are looking forward to picking their first watermelon already. They aren't that far along yet so the kiddos will have to wait a little longer.
I thought I would throw in one of the last roses of the season just for fun. There are only a couple that are still hanging on.blossom set (not sure where to get it) to help the plant turn each blossom into a tomato but I'm not too sure if that is really necessary.
