My Garden July 7, 2019
I have been in my house for almost 20 years and have been gardening longer then that. I always helped my dad since I was little. When I lived in an apartment I would help him and get veggies in return. This year, gardening has been very interesting. Every year is different and this year has been crazy different. I couldn't plant most things until mid June because of all of the rain. Even planting then, I lost a bunch of my tomato plants.
My herbs however don't mind all of the rain. They have been doing great. I have been drying lots for this winter and using loads fresh for cooking.
I grow all of the herbs from seed usually. My son saw mints plants so we are trying them this year. They are in pots on the patio far from the garden.
I am growing several different types of peppers, some hot and some sweet.
Some of the plants are very large with small peppers,
some are very small plants with large peppers,
While others are very large plants and they have tiny little peppers with lots of flowers.
The cucumbers are growing up the fence.
The squash plants are getting bigger every day.
Some of my tomato plants finally got flowers. I hope October stays warm because I am going to need it to be if I am going to get a good crop.
Eggplants are starting to bloom too.
The peas are still doing great. I can't remember the last time my peas were still giving me some in July.
The kale is out of control. Don't mind the weeds.
The raspberries I got free earlier this year are looking great.
They are starting to open up.
Hopefully I can beat the animals to them.
A month ago, I thought I was going to get very little. Now, I am happily optimistic. I am still hoping to get some bush beans planted. I just have to get them done.
How is your garden doing? What are your growing this year?
