I’m getting plenty of banana peppers. This time I picked 31 total. Seventeen from one plant. And there were plenty more still growing.
They are delicious on pizza.
The new cucumbers are starting to bloom.
And the green beans are climbing to the top of their fence.
And this part of the post is by special request for Karen at Fresh Fixin’s.
She wanted to see how my garden is set up.
From beginning to end, left to right.
The tomatoes are in the front. They will be planted on the opposite end next year so not to encourage pest reproduction.
Next is the cucumbers and peppers.
There’s a volunteer tomato and a cucumber plant mixed in there somewhere, too.
Here is the pumpkins, green beans and a few volunteer cucumber plants.
And on the right end of the garden is birdhouse gourds, cantelope (that’s not doing well), corn and sunflowers on the very end.
I’m not sure exactly how much of a harvest I will get from this fall garden, because it really should have been planted a couple weeks before.
Notice that there ARE weeds in spots in my garden. And the grass around needs to be cut.
It’ll be taken care of when I have time, whenever that is.
And in the third garden picture, (with the pumpkin plants) there were a couple of trees that had been cut down where I decided to plant my garden. I just plowed and planted around them.
They are trying to come back with multiple little trees reaching for the sun.
After the garden is finished for the season, we will try to pull then up the with the tractor.
I am in no way a professional gardener and I learn new things every year.
This is the first year I have documented the garden, and kept track of the plantings in a garden journal.
I’ve tried before, but failed miserably at keeping up with it all season.
I hope my notes will help in my future gardening attempts.
And maybe you, too.
So that’s my garden report for this week.
Anything left growing in yours?
