Mid-September Container Garden

 We are still getting plenty of cherry tomatoes from the suckers we rooted a few months ago. It has really increased the amount of tomatoes harvested and I will do it again next year.

Container Vegetable Garden August 9 2022

Eggplant blossoms are quite pretty 

The first little summer squash 

 I was disappointed to see a huge tomato hornworm eating my beefsteak tomatoes. I planted this one from seed back in February amd it was the only one to grow. All other tomatoes we bought from a nursery. But there are more blossoms so hopefully we will get more beefsteaks later.

Portable Wheelbarrow Garden

      We’ve been growing veggies in containers this year. I don’t have a lot of sunlight here in the woods, so this is one solution I’ve found. I put the pots in wheelbarrows and move them around to follow the sun. My plants are in containers set in the wheelbarrow, but I’ve seen other gardeners plant the whole wheelbarrow.

Many Marigolds

 My mother planted these marigolds from seed and so many took we have an abundance. And that is a good thing! My deck is filled with cheerful yellow and gold flowers.

What to do when it is just too Darn hot to Garden?

It has been a very hot summer everywhere. From what I have been told it is normal to get 100 plus days from the months here from  May to Oct...
