    Default My Garden

    My garden is doing very well now. My lettuce is big enough that I could start harvesting any time now. My tomatoes have also come back nicely and I have a few green tomatoes and several flowers. My sugar snap peas are about a foot high and climbing up string. I planted a second batch of lettuce and some spinach in some old gutters I had. I planted some turnips that are about 2 inches high now. My leafy vegetables are not doing as well. I have cucumbers, squash, zucchini, watermelon, and pumpkin. They are still growing, but not as well as I would hope. I also have peppers. The peppers are fighting to not be eaten by something. I have sweet potatoes and potatoes growing in pots.

    I can not wait until I am at the point where I am able to actually get food out of my garden.

    One thing to watch out for, do not plant cucumbers next to zucchini, somehow the zucchini takes over and you get no cucumbers! We had that happen at couple of times.

    I spoke to a friend of mine in the area that gardens as well. She said zucchini just does not do well around here. There is a bug that eats them that is really hard to get rid of. In NY where I grew up, zucchini grows like weeds so I thought it would be easy. Not.

    Some years it grows fine for me, other years not. Great flowers, then no zucchinis. Never thought it would be so temperamental. Takes up a lot of space, then the day you are away, it grows a 10 pound zucchini! (I'm in Ontario)

    I guess it is just something that I am going to have to give up on. I did move my cucumbers to a different garden bed, and they are doing a lot better there.
