Took a couple of pics of my garden.  Corn is doing great and almost ready, tomatoes are fine, but all green still.  I lost the watermelon to the heat, the cukes don't like it either.  Been letting the weeds grow up in the cukes to help protect them from the sun.  Peas are about done. Still have cantaloupe vines, and the zukini and squash are making it too.  the squash is currently taking over.  Started the pumpkin about two weeks ago.

Good looking garden.  We don't plant sweet corn as we can buy it cheaper.  Got 4 ears the other day at Farmers Market for $.25 each.  Can't mess with it for that.


We lost the first pumpkin plants to to much rain.  Rotted off at the ground.  Second planting is doing good so far.  Cucumbers are just coming one good now.  I keep the weeds pulled out of the cucs as they take up a lot of the moisture and nutrients for the cucs. Mostly giant foxtail.  Lot of green tomatoes, onions are baseball size & larger.  Tops starting to dry up and fall over.  Potatoes are starting to dry up.  Dug a couple plants and have nice size and looks like a lot in numbers.  Planted the red ones this year.  Have good black sandy soil so easy to dig.  Broccoli and cauliflower are not forming heads.  Earl May said not enough fertilizer.  To use 10-10-10 and put one tablespoon around each plant when planting and add another ever couple weeks through the growing season.  Plant at least 18" to 24" apart as they require a lot of feed to develop heads.  Hot weather makes them grow leaves and not heads.  Both do better as fall crops as they can stand light frost with no problem.  We are going to start some seeds and try that for this fall.  Time will tell.
