The Garden Update: A Cantaloupe Sighting!

The garden is finally growing.  It has been so rainy and cool lately, not much has been happening but we finally had a few truly hot days, and our garden is suddenly huge (in a small sort of way) and creeping everywhere.

The most exciting thing to happen thus far:  Luke spotted a cantaloupe!

It’s roughly the size of a kiwi, but it’s slowly getting bigger!

And our 2 stalks of corn are doing quite well.  You can see them peeking out from under 2 sunflower plants, also doing well but no actual yellow sunflowers yet.  We’re still hoping for ears of corn by the end of the summer.

That’s about it.  Everything else is behaving normally.  But a cantaloupe!  The anticipation is killing me.  I have to check it every day and have urges to talk to it.  Coax it to live and not die out like most of our tiny pumpkins last year.

Hopefully July continues to be a good growing month!
