Cucumbers, Pumpkins and Tomatoes "Oh My"

The garden is flourishing and I'm sweating. It 'feels like' 106 degrees today. I spent an hour of my lunch break removing cutworms and hornworms from the ever-growing garden.

I transplanted seedlings Sunday before last and all of the plants have doubled or tripled in size. This past Sunday I spent the morning collecting more seaweed from the beach, cleaning it and then applying it to the base of each plant. This weekend I plan on applying a second application of seaweed 'tea' to the entire garden.

The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.
