I figured it is time for another garden update. Not a whole lot to report, though. This time during June and July is kind of the same old same old each day: weed, water, watch, wait. Pretty much sums up gardening in June and July around here!
This pic was taken late afternoon which is why the garden is partially shaded. The string beans are growing like crazy and I am thinking our little chicken wire contraption might end up being, well, too little. Too short really.
Our cherry tomatoes are growing fabulously, the celebrity tomatoes are ok, but the Romas...not so good. I think I am going to pick up a new plant this weekend and replace the one we have now.
Our cucumbers and zucchini are also doing really well, and so far they seem to be growing up and staying within the supports!
Peppers are coming along nicely.
So are the onions and lettuce.
The carrots, wellll......
...they don't seem to be doing all that well. We only have a few teeny sprouts. According to the seed packet we should have had better growth by now. We may try to re-plant them.
All of our herbs are doing really well, too! I have been cooking with the basil quite a bit already...which is a good thing because I planted an insane amount of it! :-)
How about a few non-edible plant pictures?
Here is a little bit of the work we did in front of our house. It still needs a little tweaking and we have to mulch everything.
And what would a good blog post be without some cuteness...
Seriously....could he be any cuter?!?
