Everyone's been showing their garden "jungles" lately so I thought I'd do a post too.
The tomatoes and peppers that are in the ground are still doing wonderfully. I've had one harvest of green bell peppers and the plants are shooting out new leaves and blooms. I see that some new fruit is setting on the peppers.
The blight seems to only be affecting 6 plants that are in my raised bed. Interestingly, the Brandywines and Matt's WC that "hug" the blighted plants are resisting it so far.
I haven't sprayed in over a month. All the tomatoes in the ground are still unaffected, so far.
The tomatoes have lots of blooms but no new fruit is setting...too hot. I've said it before but I'll say it again, my future summer plantings will all go into the ground. The raised beds just get too hot and the plants suffer because of it. Spring and Fall plantings are fine to go into the raised beds, so they still have a use. I'm wondering if next springs strawberry's should go in the ground or in a raised bed. Any thoughts on that?
The "vining" plants are too shaded and crowded. We're making do for this year, but we plan on putting all these "creepers" in the new extension we'll dig out this Fall.
Lima beans are in full bloom and the bee's are all over them.
Have a happy weekend gardening!
