The [Happy] Veggies

After I devoted a post to bashing my vegetable garden, I figured I should at least leave myself one glimmer of hope and showcase a few things that are looking 'decent'!

This is our first time trying our hand at growing corn and it looks to be doing well!

We have a few of these Big Boy Bell Peppers coming along.

Jalepenos...it seems I never need one when I have them. And when I don't have them, I always need one!

Kung Pao Pepper; I am excited for these to use in stir-fry's.

Blooms on my Soy Beans [to be used for Edaname!] I don't know if they are taking extremely long, or if I am just very impatient!

And the KY Wonder Pole Beans I planted around the light post, along with a volunteer squash or pumpkin of some sort! They seem to be coming along nicely, but I would sure like to start seeing the actual beans!

So how about you - do you have a veg or flower you are particularly happy with this season?

I am squashed out. I'm actually tired of picking squash and zucchini. I have given it to EVERYONE. Today, I'm making chocolate zucchini nut bread (mini-loaves). At least it will be something different than the squash casseroles, squash stir-fry, etc. I do have green beans, peppers, eggplant, and hopefully lots of tomatos in the next week or so. Debi

It looks like it won't be long and you will have an awesome harvest! Your soy beans look great and wow look at those peppers!!

My garden was put in late, but I do have one, count 'em, one -- sweet pepper. Woo-hoo! :)

That's so pretty growing up the light post like that!

I am so incredibly jealous of your soy beans!!! I wanted to plant some this year but was unable to find the particular variety that has proven to do well in our incredibly dry heat! Lucky, lucky lady!!!

I have some edamame growing on the seeds you sent me. I can't wait to harvest and eat them!
