Comin’ Right Along !

I’m so proud of my garden!  I think it’s absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!  I picked a few yellow squash, one zucchini, some turnip greens & lettuce yesterday.  YUMMY!

Everything seems to be doing so much better than last year.  I don’t know if it’s the lime I put down in the Fall or the fish emulsion I’ve been using to fertilize with ….  or the combination of the two.  Either way ..  I’m happy with the results!

The lot is unlevel and water drains to the left and back which was creating a problem with the PVC pipe irrigation we rigged up.  So we got some weeping type flat hose and ran down the rows that we were having problems with.  I only have to hand water the front beds, the greens bed & the potatoes.

I’m using the Florida Weave method of tying up the tomato plants and so far I like it.  I’m using last year tomato cages on the Anaheim pepper plants, tomatillos.  Honestly, I HATE tomato cages.  They are so hard for me to get pushed into the ground and most of the time I end up  having to stake the plant anyway because the wind seems to manage to blow it all over.  The pepper plants should be fine though since they won’t get nearly as big and heavy as a tomato plant.
