Hello there garden gals and guys! Yup…it’s the fourth of July and I have maters!!! They say that if you have maters by the 4th you will have a good harvest all summer long!

This blog is going to be short and sweet because I believe the pictures will do the talking. Let me just say that I counted 23 Crimson Sweet watermelons growing in the big garden and I can’t wait until harvest time!! There must be over 100 tomatoes on the vines too and the bigger ones will be ripening any day now!!

My cantaloupes aren’t doing as well, but having my own watermelons will certainly make up for it!

Here are pictures of the harvest so far:


Pablo Ancho peppers….very hot!


Pepper and cukes:



Sungold cherry maters. I am getting a pint of these every other day now. They are SOOOO sweet:

Well, that’s all for now garden gals and guys! Until next time….

Happy gardening!
