The melon patch is looking like a success. I've found a cluster o' cantaloupes
And the watermelon have begun to bloom. We're having a pretty good growing year.
What a difference a year makes:
|The melon patch this year|
|The melon patch last year (Aug 8th). |
Different varieties, different location.
|The black beans have outrun the fusarium root rot with the help of more Blood Meal. |
Cucumbers are thriving on the right and beginning to set
|Cukes last year refused to thrive and were battling root rot themselves. |
The black beans were not yet planted
|This year four beautiful Dunja zucchini plants|
|Just about ready to pick|
|The single zucchini plant last year. Just before the Horned Squash Bugs found it.|
And killed it.
|Last year's tomato/eggplant/pepper bed on the fourth of July|
|This year's tomato/eggplant/pepper bed. |
I've already had to go in there armed with scissors and tomato ties
