Gardening in West Texas That is What I Get

      My oh my what a gardening day. I got up and out in the garden by 8 in the morning. Everyone is growing so well! My tomatoes though were getting a bit over grown. My friend over at My Side of Life told me they needed two feet of space a piece and while I couldn't listen to that point(I gave my just over a foot between them) some of them had to be moved. So I got to digging and transplanting, when I reach a hard piece of ground I got my spade out and started hacking at the ground............guess I should have moved a nearby pot......because as I was trying to transplant and dig I hit the corner. At this point I don't think it is broken enough to go in but I messed something up good :p . Here are some pictures for the garden this week.
Beautiful clouds before our evening storm, you
can see how big the sunflower is getting!

Mmmmm....I love basil, it is the only herb I have gotten going.

Strawberries are still alive and finally starting
to grow after being in the ground for a week.

Some kind of bean, it isn't looking like the bean I put in the ground.lol

Look how big the mystery plant is getting! I'm thinking
it is a large pumpkin plant.

Pickling cucumbers, okra and corn growing strong!

Ooooppppsss sideways picture,lol here is the baby sunflower
that is hiding behind that huge one.
     Now to start preparing these plants for vacation! I bought some little watering stakes that attach to two liter bottles hopefully it will be enough for them to survive. How does your garden grow?
