Kimmy, Kimmy, Quite Contrary, How Does Your Garden Grow?

My straw bale garden is coming along quite well . . . at least better than my "regular" gardens ever did, so that makes me happy!

We've had LOTS of rain here the last few weeks, which has alleviated a lot of my responsibility to these bales for keeping them wet. I think the rain has helped a lot.

This is not part of my straw bale garden, but I just wanted to show you all how HUGE my rhubarb has grown this year.  It's never been so big.  I think it's because of all the rain we've had.


Herbs

Celery

Tomatoes

Peppers

Cucumbers

Peas

More peas

I forgot to take pictures of the melons and pumpkins growing out of the sides of the bales.  They're coming along as well . . . just like I had hoped!

can you show us what the whole garden looks like? Hard to get the whole picture... sure looks successful so far! I've had to replant a few things, but most is coming up nicely. Pics to come next week hopefully.
