Garden update

Dad cut down the huge Crab apple mess that was taking over the garden. I will miss the pink blossoms in the Spring but it was getting a little out of hand.
These are our first gems. I ate some today while making a salad and they are super crunchy. While washing them I realized I do not need to clean them like hazardous material because they grew right out back - in my yard - I saw them. No plane flew over and sprayed, no bags of XXX were dumped in the soil-Just East Falmouth dirt, some duck poop and plants-Yum!
I am looking at a few squash plants with many flowers but no sign of a squash yet. Soon, soon I hope. The tomatoes are coming along as well, lots of little green babies and flowers too.
That feels pretty good. I do want to make it bigger and better next year. Let me change that last. I don't think it needs to be bigger just planned better for space. I keep taking pictures so I can remember the space needed for plants so I hope that helps. I am also thinking I can move the cukes to the back and they can spread their legs out into the area that used to be Crab Apple Hell.
I would also like to add some Sunflowers. Everybody needs some sunflowers.

Bravo! You are well on your way to growing some good, healthy food to supplement your current purchased food.

I see plenty of room for raised beds (I am very fond of those) in your image of the garden a few posts ago.
