Vegetable Garden Update

Moderate amounts of success! The potatoes we planted have come up in full force and are growing leaves like crazy. This evening Greg "hilled" them which means piling dirt around the plants until the bottom leaves are covered. We will find out in due time if this was done correctly. In the meantime we have some decent looking greenery!

And for awhile there our tomato and cucumber plants looked like goners. After bringing them in the house for a weekend (the weather was much too cold it turns out) they are bouncing back. Two tomato plants are looking really strong and healthy, the third is coming along.  We are working on the cucumber plants, one died and the other two look better than before but it's still up in the air whether or not they will end up making cucumbers.

Thankfully no wildlife has really gotten into the plants. There have been a few paw prints in the containers this past week but I think they were more investigative rather than destructive. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way!
