A few pics of my garden

I went to check on it this morning, and my crookneck squash and pumpkin seedlings already have little flower buds on them! I was amazed, so I took some pics.

mom,

Things are looking good. Slightly larger photos would be nice. :)

Don't be disappointed if the first flower don't develope.

Looks like it may reach a sweltering 70F here today. :lol:

I am so jealous of your tomatoes! I can't wait until mine are that big.

We're actually hitting 80 here today! Yay! Grow veggies, grow!

It's a tiny jungle, but a jungle nonetheless. It was so empty when I started, but it's filled out a bunch. And I've already harvested mustard and chard from it, that's why there's room now for the squash and pumpkin.

I'm so computer illiterate it's not funny. Cell phone pics are probably as good as it's gonna get from me. I may break out the camera once I've expanded past my 4' diameter circle.

We're at 91 right now, and according to weather.com it feels like 102. I think I might kill for a 70 degree day.

And I'm not really expecting fruits from those, they just really surprised me. Quick question: do pumpkins have male and female flowers like the squash?

Yes, male and female flowers. Pumpkin is a squash. ( C. pepo )
