So far, the garden is growing better than I imagined it would.
The tomatoes were looking as if they were ready to give up the ghost.
But they’ve had a growth spurt.
The bottom leaves that are dying show the end of it’s cycle. But the green upper leaves show they have begun new life.
As does this bloom, which is one of many.
The cucumbers are sending out runners.
And the green beans are climbing the fence.
The banana peppers are still blooming and producing peppers.
Pumpkin and sunflower are growing nicely too.
I have volunteer cucumber……
and a couple of tomatoes have came up.
Who knows how those seeds resprouted, but it has to be from this years garden. Because nothing has ever been planted anywhere near here before.
And these bugs still have full interest in my tomatoes.
I know that further north most of your gardens are harvested and maybe even plowed.
Ready to rest for the winter.
But this one is just getting started, all over again.
Wish me luck with my first, second, garden.
You can bet that next year’ second garden will be more thought out.
It’s already in the planning stages.
