The garden is doing pretty good. The tomatoes are starting to slow down and, as you can see, my cucumbers are sick. They are still producing, but they have mildew which deforms the cucumbers. I pulled up all the Geraniums b/c they were so big. The cantaloupe are starting to produce like crazy and we hope to eat our first one later this week! FINALLY!
Our carrots were a flop. I knew I was planting them too late, but decided to anyway. They really need to be planted early b/c the cool weather is what makes them sweet....needless to say, ours are very bitter!
The peppers are still putting out peppers and our pumpkin vines are getting big. BUT, I'm almost 100% sure that they have Boar Beetles. If that's the case, one of these mornings they'll all just be shriveled up. It will be a big bummer if we don't get any pumpkins.
I'm throwing around the idea of planting some lettuce, broccoli and cabbage? I don't know much (anything) about fall and winter gardens? Maybe I'll research it, but we are hoping to start school next week and I'll be very busy. We'll see. If I decide not to, this will be my last garden update. Awwwww, I know everyone is broken hearted. ;) Thanks for the encouragement. Hope someone was inspired to try a garden next year. It was so easy, lots of fun and very beneficial...did I mention that it was very cheap ORGANIC produce?! That's reason enough!! :)
