How does my garden grow?

Here is an update of my garden. A bunch of rain over the last 2 days caused everything to take off!

My purple beans are covered with flowers and growing like crazy.

My sweet potato slip is actually growing! I've got a few more that are almost ready to plant, so maybe I'll get some sweet potatoes after all.

Pumpkins. They are starting to get buds.

My blue potatoes are insane! I need to hill them up again tomorrow.
My black russian tomatoes are getting bigger. I also have some tomatoes on the Amish paste tomotoes that are starting to grow. My purple tomatoes are lagging behind, no flowers yet even.

Carrots. Boy do these things grow fast!

My onions. I'm so excited by these! I'm starting to see the onions peeking up through the top of the soil.

My 1 cucumber plant because Logan wants to make pickles even though none of us like them. It is getting beautiful yellow flowers.

I'm so impressed by how well everything is growing. I know my harvest will be small since I didn't plant much but I'm gaining confidence and experience for next year.

My carrots have decided not to grow this year. Another blogger in my area said the same about her carrots. Maybe ours have moved down to Delaware to be with yours...?

If you don't want the pickles you make, we love up here!

Well, I have no idea what the carrots are doing under the dirt LOL. But they look good above the dirt. I'll let you know about the pickles. I do like bread and butter pickles so maybe I'll try to make those.

Thank you! I'm very excited about how things are going.
