Garden 2013 Update 8

Vegetable Garden 2013

Zucchini anyone?

Yep we have an abundant crop. We planted 3 plants of parthenocarpic (self pollinating) and we've been trying to harvest them soon. You can not turn your back on these guys else they just fatten up.

We are harvesting a lot of beans - both yellow romanos and bush. The beets and carrots are ready but I'll leave them. The second crop of radishes failed - they became woody probably because we didn't give them enough water or it has been too warm.

The corn is doing great. I am a little worried that we'll have some type of critter that will show up just before it is time to harvest. The birds have started attacking the tomatoes. We have some great large tomatoes ripening and I think it is the Blue Jays that peck at them. The blue jays loved the plums we had in a box last year. Hopefully they tried them and found them not to their liking.

It will be a great August.

Looks like you're having an abundant harvest! It's certainly been a good summer for tomatoes here!
