End of Summer Update & Garden Envy

It's a shame that the last days of summer are upon us but August has been pretty good to the garden. Despite the fact that it has been exceptionally dry, the weather has been warm and sunny so with diligent watering our crops have thrived. 

Our garden:

Our cantaloupe are doing very well. We have quite a few small melons but nothing is ready to pick yet. When they become heavy for their size, are very fragrant, and the skin beneath the webbing is orange or golden in color they are ready to pick.

The hot hot hot weather in Greeley has made for a wonderful growing climate. Here's a short and sweet garden update for everyone.

Bonus: I got to harvest a few things last time I was at the garden. Very exciting!

The plant that I thought was a gigantic pepper plant was in fact a sunflower. The flowers are very pretty but not quite the humongous peppers I was hoping for!
