July is just around the corner.
My crowded garden is growing like CRAZY!
There has been rain and hot days with lots of sunshine lately. My tomatoes are LOVING it!
I am trying an experiment and not clipping all the suckers that develop. There are TONS of blooms and some tomatoes!
We’ve been faithfully putting our grass clippings in between the rows so there haven’t been a large amount of weeds. YEAH!
A couple of failures, I’ve had in previous years were peppers & zucchini. I started with pepper plants instead of seeds and they are thriving.
We have one BIG pepper & several little ones.
Also in the past. my zucchini have been a failure because of squash bugs. There haven’t been any bugs on the zucchini so far this year.
However my poor little pumpkin plant was attacked.
It lost a bunch of leaves and I thought it was a goner. I squashed 4-5 bugs & removed the leaves with eggs.
So far it is still alive, has new leaves & a little bloom that is starting to develop!
Next week I will shop you how THE TRASHCAN EXPERIMENT is going. It is looking pretty good so far!
I am so glad to have a garden. It truly is one of the joys of summer that I love!
How is your garden growing?
