Corn, Zucchini and Peas, Oh My!

I know I just posted about our garden a week or so ago, but I was so excited to see what's developed in the last week. First off, we NOW actually have some corn starting (I was mistaken last time). About mid-week last week we saw the first of the silks.

Early last week we also got our first male AND female zucchini blossoms open, and so, not trusting the bees, decided to hand pollinate it. Here is the male flower:

and here is a female:

Notice the difference in the shape of the pollen. Apparently my hand pollinating was successful, because yesterday we were able to pick this!

We also sampled one of our snap peas this weekend.

Those are some tasty peas. The boys LOVE them!
