Gardening in West Texas-A Beautiful Day

Wow what a week this has been. We have been dealing with temperatures near 100 degrees ever since returning from vacation! Water, water, water seems to be all I can do ts week and even then the plants were looking a bit sad. This morning I woke up to a beautiful overcast sky to find that we got nearly and inch of rain over night! The bad thing is it still looks super dry out there :( but no fear mother nature is blessing us with a cool day and the hope of more rain to come. I am finally getting to start to harvest some  vegetables which is really exciting! I love seeing all my hard work finally paying off. While it is not a lot I have picked 5 tomatoes(sweet 100s) and another 10 beans this week. We have about 10 corn growing strong on the stalk, many more beans and tomatoes growing! The next couple weeks promise to be very productive YAY! Here are some pictures from the week.
The tomato plant that nearly broke my hand still lives!

Garden view, the corn hides so much these days

one pickling cucumber.....hmmmm going to need more lol

with a final height of just over 8.5 feet the seed creating has begun
sunflowers don't die fast the build slow

lots of sweet 100s :)

Mystery plant is most likely a pumpkin and I think this one might grow!

I am so jealous, my garden has pretty much died from too much rain and not enough sun.
