Haven't done a garden update in a couple of weeks so here it is...
Eggplants are doing fine. Putting on blooms but haven't set fruit yet. One plant looked like something had nibbled on it, more insect like, not animal, but I didn't see anything. I'll have to keep an eye on it.
At the other end of this bed are the jalapeños. Missed the picture of them but they are getting bigger and also have a few blooms on them.
The two okra plants are getting larger, slowly but larger. They love the heat so once it gets warmer and stays warmer, they'll be happier.
Tomatoes are putting blooms on so hopefully small toms aren't far behind.
The zucchini is getting HUGE! There is a yellow squash in this bed too (just off camera) but it's much smaller than this. I might have to sacrifice it to let us have zucchini.
Cucumbers are climbing the trellis like CRAZY! I can't believe how fast they are growing.
I looked on the underside of the trellis and...
...a baby cuke!!! And as you can see, more blooms in the background! Not sure how many we'll end up with but I hope it's prolific. It's our first time with cucumbers so this is an experiment for our garden.
The herb bed is growing as well. This picture doesn't show all but here are the basil, lemon thyme and Italian flat leaf parsley. Off camera are chives and oregano. I did harvest a bit of basil.
The garden is doing great and is becoming somewhat self-sufficient. By that I mean I don't have to worry about watering now, looks like the timer is on the right cycle for the soaker hose. The straw is keeping weeds down to almost non-existent (and the ones that do pop up I just pull in about 2 seconds). Using the weedblock fabric on the ground has almost eliminated those weeds as well. I just kind of go into the garden, wander around looking at the plants and that's all I have to do. I know it won't stay like that but for now, it's working great and I like it!
