I have warned you in other posts that I am not creative so you have to deal with the corniness while I try unsuccessfully to be witty. :)
OK, what kind of cucumber is this? I have never seen anything like this before but that's not saying anything. But a friend of mine, that grew up on a farm, said she had NO IDEA what it was. I wonder if the cucumber plant and the tomato plant got too friendly one night. I can't seem to separate them.
Here is my corn! I keep checking on it. The top one looks ready but the lower one just doesn't look read yet. I hope the top one keeps...and the flag keeps deer and other animals away until it is ready.
More crockneck squash about ready :)
I HAVE WATERMELON!! I HAVE WATERMELON!!! I was SO EXCITED to see this!
And then I saw this! (OK maybe you can't make it out.) ANOTHER watermelon! Same vine but a good distance away. I will monitor this vine to see if any other pop up. After that I will "thin" them.
I am wondering if this is a cantaloupe starting. (again, blurry. hard to see if the picture is good when the sun is directly behind you)
This is my poor little mutilated cabbage. I finally resorted to Sivin Dust but was careful to only cover it. I would really hate to kill my many bees that have graced my garden.
Bell peppers coming along nicely :)
Okra that I need to cut.
My other okra plant with some baby okra.
These are my additions to the main garden. This is the box that is to the far left of the overall picture from the last post. It has tomato plants to the left, and some jalapeno pepper plants in the middle. I actually have a square open! lol
The other box that has just tomato plants. I have no idea what kind they are. They were given to me.
My strawberry patch. The ones that are brown are the ones from Lowes. I am still not sure what to do with them besides mulch them. I have another one that is growing new leaves so....I dunno but to just wait and see.
I have put a cucumber plant that I started a while back on the trellis that I had my peas on. I hope this one does better than my peas! He was in a container and he was getting a little yellow. I hope it was just because the pot was too small! I transplanted him into a clay pot that is 12 inches wide.
This is my "Lower 40" Box #1. That is the pumpkin vine growing up the trellis. I think he likes it! :)
My sugar baby watermelon from seed. He is making his way up the trellis as well.
"Lower 40" Box #2
Raspberry bush #1. Do I cut this down in the fall??
Raspberry bush #2 going NUTS! He is HUGE with no fruit
I am not sure you can even see him. This is my blueberry bush that was almost destroyed by 2 cutworms that was hiding in his container. I found them when I replanted him into the ground. I just dont see any new growth, but he also isn't dying. Any suggestions to beef him up?
Blueberry bush #2. He has this red stuff on his leaves. Not sure what it is or how to fix it.
I found this at the dollar tree and I just couldn't pass it up! I decided to wrap my onion flower on it to keep it off the soil.
