The garden is moving right along

Its the end of june and we are eating things out of the garden in pretty much every single meal at this point, we have also gotten to the point of harvesting certain rows that were very quick crops that were planted in April and have been eaten up and have rows that are being replanted into other crops, some spots are planned to have two or even three plantings over the spring, summer and fall. We continue to plant more things out all the time, only a few things must either be started or are past their planting dates, this will continue thoughout July and even the first week of aug for late season or late fall plantings.

Here are just a few photo of things that are in harvest or are coming into blooms nice and early..

The pea vines are well over four feet now and working their way upwards on five feet high at this time, both in bloom and producing..

The earliest of the bush beans are in full bloom and I can’t wait for them to start cropping in, a number of other beans will come in later but most of them are climbers

The hot peppers are ahead of the regular bell peppers but they are in bloom and starting to set fruit as well, they had better hurry up or it will get hot enough in the evenings that they will not set again till mid to late aug as the evenings cool off.

The tomato’s have lots and lots of growing to do but they are just starting to get some of their first fruits, many of which I will use as green tomato’s, who waits till they are red to start eating them LOL but I will let one plant go to red.

    Looks great. do you do any preventative treatments to your tomato plants for blight?

    • Feed the soil well, and if needed do a manure tea spray on the plants but otherwise, not really

      • Deb Weyrich-Cody says:

        So, healthy plants don’t normally get sick then? I use a tablespoon of Epsom Salts per plant when back-filling. The magnesium seems to help prevent Blossom-End Rot and gives extra vigorous growth: )

      • That’s what I find, it the plant is healthy, and well feed, it seems fine, but they say if in doubt, give them a manure spray as it will block up the area’s that the blight can attach to but I have only ever had it once in ten years and it was pretty bad that year, it was a pull and burn bad.. otherwise, knock on wood, I have been great.
