Remember our 1 million dollar garden plot? After renting and borrowing 3 rototillers, hooking up a drip line, recruiting grandpa for fence building, AND FINALLY planting it...here it is in July!
Garden plot in JulyThe status is: We got about 10 pods before the peas burned up *the temp. has been averaging in the 100's. Our zucchini and squash have provided some great meals for us and our neighbors--we are awaiting the next batch to arrive. The sunflowers and pumpkins are growing away. Our red bell peppers have not changed much since the time we planted them. Our tomato plants grew huge and produced flowers, but no tomatoes. Now some of them are starting to die. We did get some cherry tomatoes and have eaten them. I LOVE gardens, but hardly can take credit this year--it has been a large part of Dan's manual labor. It has been fun eating, and learning for next time!
