It's been about a month since my last post, and my garden is really coming along. As you can see, the tomatoes and cucumbers are much taller than Copper these days.
The tomatoes are much more robust in shape and size than last year at the townhouse. Sadly, none are turning red yet. It's gotta be soon though, or I think some of these are going to burst!
A few of the cukes are almost full size now, but not many. It seems like there is something wrong with my vines. It may be something like sudden wilt, or it may be that we haven't had a good rain in two weeks. I'm trying to nurse them back to health, but I am not feeling super optimistic at the moment.
My green beans are only about a foot high but they are already loaded with bean pods. I harvested about half a pound last night for dinner. And they were dee-lish.
The onions are starting to look nice and bulbous now. This planter is clearly overcrowded, but that's how you learn right? They might not end up as giant onions, but hey.
Anaheim peppers (not sure)
Ancient sweets - I harvested these seeds from some peppers I bought at the grocery store.
It looks like we are going to have some quality salsa this year. Now if they would all just hurry up and turn red!
