It occurred to me this morning that I may want pictures of what the garden currently looks like. I have been trying to get pictures of it regularly, but it will be fun to see later how big things have gotten. Especially since there are mornings I am afraid the growing season will be cut short. I took a quick peak at the forecast, and while it seems to be okay for awhile (the lowest its getting being 38 before jumping 20 degrees), part of me is waiting for it to frost suddenly.
So without further ado... lets see how things are doing.
The Cucumbers and the tomatoes. Yep, the tomatoes are over 8 feet, and the cucumbers have climbed 6ft poles, then gone over string to the deck as well as using the railings quite a bit. We can pull about 8 cucumbers every few days. I am rather shocked how all this is growing. We did try using the pepper booster on the tomatoes, adn it seems to have helped them fruit. We have a ton of green regular tomatoes. Now to hope to see them get red so I can do something with them.
The container garden is going quite well. We have one lavender plant that never seemed to flower, but the other made up for it. The radishes and carrots are doing quite well (I am planning on thinning them later this week and using the greens for salad). The lettuce kinda bolted and I need to pull it, but right now its flowering and Pooka seems to enjoy it. Her morning glory is looking kinda crazy again, I need to deal with it. We are getting plenty of herbs that we are drying at least once a week.
