I’ve picked 10 tomatoes so far but the plants are full. I’m afraid to let them ripen fully on the vine because of the “sucky bugs” You know, the ones that suck the juice from the tomatoes. I’ve no idea what they are. ? I dislike using it but I sprinkle Sevin Dust on the tomato plants.
I also picked 3 more bell peppers that are green, not orange. I’ve one plant that I have left the bell peppers on longer than the others and they are not turning ornage either. The sun has partically baked them with a sun spot. As I said in an eariler post I can’t eat green bell peppers so I’ll be giving these way.
I’ve yet to get gas for my new (replacement) tiller so the garden is a bit grass. I am thankful that most of the grass growing amoungst the plants is crabgrass so it is easy to pull up.
The potato plants are still greenish; there is one in the garden that is still flowering. I can’t believe that, but there it is. :O)
I was watering the green beans and picking them at the same time Friday night. I only got 3 pts. and one 1/2 pt. So far that makes 13 1/2 pts this year. The plants are still lush, green and flowering so I’ve hopes yet of canning more than 30 pts.
The weather is supposed to turn HOTTER (100 degrees plus) with no rain in site for next week. I see the water bill going up. :O)
When I water tonight I’m going to put some 10-20-10 fertilizer around the plants. They look like they could use it.
May YOUR garden produce beyond your expectations.
