The garden has been doing well, sort of. The plants are all huge! The bell pepper and banana peppers are doing great. The squash has put out a few, but it’s has a bunch of little ones on it now. The cucumber isn’t doing to bad. Still kind of small, but it’s trying and puts out one or two a week.
The tomatoes… well, I’m not sure about them. The were doing great, then the leaves started turning yellow, getting brown spots and shriveling up. I have tried pulling them off, but more turn. It seems to be doing a little better now. They are producing tomatoes like crazy, but they are splitting and getting bad spots on them before they even ripen. I tried taking them off early to ripen in the window but I’m still getting the bad spots on them within a day or so. Any ideas from the seasoned gardeners out there?
My zucchini has been doing extremely well as you can see from the picture above. I feel like I have to check it every hour or one of them will turn into super zucchini again! I have had a few try. Lately it is starting to wilt as you can see in the picture below. I’m not sure what is going on with it. It may be that they are planted to close or it has a disease. I hate to think that any of my plants have a disease after all the work we put into the garden. It says that we can’t plant the same thing there for like 3 years if we do!!! Is my garden doomed?
In this next picture you can see my watermelon if you look close. It’s that green round thing. See it? See it? I’m so excited! At the last-minute after the garden was planted I bought it. It sat in its sad little container for weeks and almost died while I was trying to decide where to put it. Finally I stuck it in the 3×3 empty space in the garden. Hmmmm… turns out it needs a lot more room! It has wound its way all around the garden and at last check I had 3 baby watermelons growing on it! Yippy!
I’m thinking next year I need to expand the garden.
