I’ve continued to take pictures of the progress in the garden but just never get around to posting them. I’ll use this post to try and catch up a little.
Sweet corn experiment has been very educational. Biggest lesson so far is that I planted too much corn for the garden bed. While the plants have grown well enough, the overcrowding appears to be resulting in small and not fully formed ears. I hope to be getting my first few picked ears in a couple days and will post more details then.
As has been typical in past years, the yellow squash and zucchini get off to a good start, but it is only a matter of time until the squash vine borer puts and end to it. I’ve already pulled one of the squash plants and executed the squash murderers for their crime.
Always nice to get some red splashes in the garden. These cherry tomatoes were the first to break the red barrier.
Not a bad haul for one night in the garden. A good chunk of these will be passed around to the neighbors and coworkers.
I suppose if there were no pests, gardening wouldn’t be much of a challenge and therefore not much fun. Would be nice to not have to fight them all every year.
So far this Tomato Horn Worm has been the only one of its kind found so far this year.
Finally a view of the sweet corn from a bif of a distance away to see how tall it has gotten. If nothing else, we should have some decorations for Halloween this year.
