My 2 Potato beds. Something attacked a few plants, the others are thriving.

I have 3 pictures for each bed. A Distant shot, a closeup of the diseased plants, and a closeup of the beautiful healthy plants within that bed

June 30, 2013

Had to check the Potatoes and they sure seem to be growing nicely under there.



Back beds. Empty spot on left is where the Strawberries were and wont be ever again. No more strawberries. Waste of space IMO. So I transplanted some late growing squash there.



Peppers love the pots! This is Hawaiian Hot



Texas Black



Cukes!





Bell Peppers and Eggplants

I love, love, love this thread. I am so motivated for next year. Cambium, would love to hire you to come to my house and get me started -- I am a total novice!

Seriously, I think I am going to go by my local plant store and ask them for advice ... it's locally-owned and the people are really nice. I can read and read and read but there is no substitute for having someone show me.

How did those veggies taste? They look beautiful!

Thanks! I got my nephew started on a garden. I just love the fact that at 13yrs old he's into one. I tilled a little area for him in February and we both planted some stuff in the spring.

Over the weekend I did a taste test on some family members. I bought a cucumber from the store, peeled it and compared it to the ones I picked. Not one person said they liked the store bought one.

Everything is so fresh tasting as usual.

90s and humid everything is Bolting lately.
