My how things have grown

This is totally unrelated to this post, but I thought I'd buy a cheapo temperature reader at Home Depot today because it's always nice to look out the window at any time of day and see what the temp is.  I just hope it doesn't blow any in any wind.

First pick of the season!  Cherry tomatoes.  There should be about 5 more ready to pick in the next few days.

My one cucumber plant was getting out of control and I had been meaning to make a trellis for it for  quite some time so the plant could learn to grow up the trellis instead of just spreading everywhere.  Well, so I finally made one today!  I did have to loosely "twisty tie" the plant to the trellis though.  I'm hoping that doesn't hurt it in the long run.  Once it actually attaches itself to the trellis, I'll be able to take the ties off.  Think of it like training wheels for plants!

And now with a trellis, our garden looks like a serious garden!

Here's an updated look of our corn.  It's about 18" tall. 

All of the tomato plants!!!!!  And I found like 8 roma tomato and 1 regular tomato starting to grow already!!!!

Looks great. Caprese salad coming up. I'll take any surplus, too.
