Friday PhotoEssay

The garden sure has changed a lot this week, especially since the weather has been pretty consistently warm.

The heirloom tomatoes are almost unrecognizable. They will be well past ready for another level of twine next Tuesday! They are also suckering a lot from near the base, so I think we will be pruning them next week as well. I’ll try to get pictures of that process.

The wind certainly didn’t do any favors for our onions. They are pretty well flattened. But, since they still seem to be alive, we’ll let them keep going until they aren’t.

Some of our peppers are starting to grow out of the thrips injury, while others, like the one above, are definitely not growing out of it yet. We may have to spray next week.

More cabbage pictures! This is the cabbage in the Family of 4 Garden, so it is more in line with normal cabbage season, compared to the ‘Caraflex’ that had gotten a head start with the Garden Show (may it rest in peace).

The lavender is in full bloom, and it is much prettier in person than my pictures would show. The colors just get washed out in the bright sunlight. Hopefully we’ll have a cloudy day while it is still blooming nicely.

We have 2 peppers and some squash in the large, 100 gallon smart pot. This picture was taken on Tuesday, and the squash have at least doubled in size since then.

Have a great weekend!
