Our summer garden is rapidly winding down. After producing like a machine, the tomato plant grew too large and fell over! I tried to put pieces of wood around the tomato planter, but because it is in a raised square foot garden bed, I couldn’t put the wood in deep enough to secure it. The tomato plant is lying on the ground, still producing tomatoes, though much slower now. I’ll leave it for a bit until production really drops off.
Last week, when we experienced an unusually cold and rainy day, my daughter and I planted the fall garden in the empty space from the zucchini and cucumbers. We planted two rows of English peas, one row of bok choy and one small row of lettuce. When some more of the summer veggies die off, we will plant more of the fall garden.
Even though we had some trouble with beetles on our zucchini and cucumber plants, I am so grateful for the luscious tomatoes we got. I can’t wait to see what the fall garden produces!
In the last 14 days since my last report, we were able to harvest the following:
Zucchini: 0 (all plants were pulled up)
Green Peppers: 1
Red Peppers: 0
Hot Peppers: 10
For the entire season, we have gotten the following produce from our garden:
Green Pepper: 2
Red Pepper: 9
Hot Peppers: 29
If you are gardening, how is your garden doing?
