|gateway to my garden|
Last night Tucker was with me in the garden. He usually follows me everywhere I go. Anyway, he was slinking between rows and I wondered what he was up to. I discovered he had a branch from one of the bean plants in his mouth and a few beans hanging from it. It turns out he likes to eat raw beans. Now there is a dog with good taste!
We have also enjoyed fresh peas from the garden this year. They were planted by the previous owners and ready when we moved in. I have tried growing peas every year but for some reason I never have enough plants to provide more than a taste.
The zucchinis are starting to produce and hopefully the cucumbers and squash are not far behind. There are lots of flowers on the plants but on closer examination I find more males than females. Where have all the females gone?!? The best squash plant growing is one I didn't plant. It is in the compost pile and I think it is time to harvest a few squash.
