I was finally able to get into the vegetable garden this week and got everything weeded. Saturday morning I went over to the local garden center and bought 3 Cool Breeze Cucumbers, 2 Hale's Best Jumbo Canteloupe, and 1 Gold Rush Summer Squash. I managed to get all of them out into the garden. Here are a few pics of my work.

Hope you are all enjoying your Memorial Day weekend. Remember those who serve our country, yesterday, today and tomorrow. God Bless.
We have had almost an 1 1/2 inches of rain in the last 5 days. There is no way for me to even walk to the vegetable garden to look at what has sprouted. However, I can get to the front driveway beds just fine. I took a couple of photos to share with all of you and added a bunch to my calendar, "What's In Bloom."
You can see the lettuce and radishes doing very well with all the rain in the photo below.
Bluebells are completely full of blooms and it reminds me that I should really split them this fall and move some around. The neighbor showed interest in having a few when the time comes to divide.
Chives are just getting ready to bloom as well. Enjoy and happy gardening to all.
Took some new photos out in the yard today, didn't do any actual work. Drank some tea on the deck and talked to Brooke about the radishes we planted a few weeks ago. We pulled just a couple out and she was soooo excited. Thought you would all enjoy this new gardener of mine.
