Garden: Bounty

This morning I finally made it into the garden.  I turned the hose on and by the time I'd walked over to the garden, there was a muddy mess beside my plot, where the hose was lying, because the hose was busted.  I went and turned it back off, but ended up with muddy shoes, muddy hands, muddy tote bag, and some mud on my butt by the time I was done and entered the office.

Today was bountiful.  The red cabbage, as I was informed, had a handful of smaller heads developing nicely.  I picked two that were larger and firmer.

The jalapeno is doing well.  Two were bright red, so I picked those.

The bell pepper had three, one large enough to pick.  I've always struggled growing bell pepper, so am pleased with these.

I picked handfuls of Brussels sprouts and a pile of Roma tomatoes.

And the eggplant was ready to pick.  

Lots of veggies at our house the rest of the week and this weekend.

No more cucumbers, though I still saw a few buds.  And no more squash.  Though the plant had some fresh growth and blossoms, it is dying, so I'll remove it over the weekend when I can come dressed for garden work.

Of the various seeds planted two Saturdays ago, the lettuce is up.
