The Garden at Three Weeks

It has almost been three weeks since we planted our vegetable garden. Things are progressing great and I am amazed at how much some of the plants have already grown. The tomatoes, potatoes, green beans and peppers are doing the best right now. The squash and beans are a little slower to grow, but our weather has been weird. 60'F and drizzling on Easter, hot, 95'F yesterday, and this weekend it is expected to be cool again.
I love going out and checking on the garden every day. So far no bugs or pests, although I have seen mouse poop, so I will keep an eye out for the little critters. We are going to have a great garden this year.

the fig tree has such healthy leaves

these little chives are growing from seeds I harvested from last years chive blossoms

I love roasted beets in a summer salad. Hopefully these little babies will thrive
