Green Thumb Sunday

For this episode of GTS, we have vegetable garden progress. First up, baby zucchini.

Second, baby squash. Yum...

Below we have cherry tomatoes. These are on a stem that had broken, but I tied them up and hope that they will survive. :-)

Here is a photo of the mint in my herb bed. I really need to get out there and harvest some. It is starting to try to take over.

And last but not least, is a what is this question. Can any of you wonderful gardeners tell me what this is? I hope it isn't what I think... (poison oak?)

One of the things I've noticed in reading the gardening blogs is that I love flowers. I see all these beautiful photos of wonderful flowers, but I don't have any of my favorites in my garden. So my plan for next year is, MORE FLOWERS!

Okay, I'm off to do laundry and get ready for the work week.

We looked up photos of poison oak and by the photos we saw it doesn't look the same. We aren't sure what it is. Sorry we couldn't help. Love your vegi garden. We have a great recipe for zucchini caserole. We eat it all summer long.

I think I bought a flower that looks like that. It is dark here now so I can't look at the tag. I will come back tomorrow if it is the same, and hopefully I will get the correct name for you.

Hi Laura,
Don't things you grow in your garden just TASTE better? :) I don't know what that leaf is, but it's not poison ivy. That grows in groups of three. As a little girl I learned, "Leaves of three, let it be!". Have a wonderful gardening week.

Cant't help with your mystery plant...at first glance I thought some sort of Ipomoea ...it looks like it wants to be a climber of some kind. Happy GTS and enjoy those vegetables.

First of all, you may not have a lot of flowers, but you have a lovely veggie garden.

It's not poison oak. Believe me, I know poison oak. I have about an acre of it.

It looks almost like some type of grape vine, but I don't know what else it could be.

Annie from the Transplantable Rose is really good at identifing plants. I would ask her.

I agree it looks like a grapevine and flowers or no, there's not much cuter than baby veggies.
