Take a look at the garden...

This planting of green beans is nearly ready to pick! I think I'll give them one more day. They look fantastic.

The cucumbers I had to replant are finally taking off. The plants in the front are a short vined bush type especially good for small gardens and containers. The variety in the back is called 'Muncher' and is beginning to climb up the trellis.

I love how well the Minnesota Midget cantaloupe plants are doing. The melons only grow to about softball size so they are perfect to grow on a trellis. The plants are loaded with bright yellow blossoms.

Here's my experiment for this year -- sweet corn in a container garden. This variety is called Trinity Hybrid and gets about 5' tall. So far it is looking pretty good!

My favorite part of the day is when I go outside and walk down the garden path. We added the park bench to the back corner because sitting in the garden is pretty pleasant, too.
