How Does Your Garden Grow?

Here is Papa getting ground ready for a pumpkin patch. On Sat. I remembered that I wanted to plant a pumpkin patch so I would have pumpkins to decorate for fall. So he was kind enough to dig up more ground.
The pea's are growing bigger. We will have plenty of these if they keep on growing.
The watermelons are sprouting too. It looks like the ground is dry, but we just had over 2 inches of rain on this ground. It is very sandy and watermelons like that. Here are tomatoes and bell peppers. They were just planted on Friday.
If all this comes up do you think Papa will have enough to keep him busy? I think he will. Hopefully all this will grow and do well. We are not exactly professional gardeners but we know some that are and they are giving Papa advice. A lot depends on the weather. Some people's garden got rained out this past week-end. Lucky ours is high and dry and just needs to be watered more often.
